The first single and video off their forthcoming album, Saturation III.
It’s been a meteoric year for the eccentric hip-hop collective, Brockhampton. Harboring similarities to Odd Future, Brockhampton is composed of a talented group of LA by way of Texas transplants who share one common goal: to produce music to the best of their abilities. So far in 2017, Brockhampton has released two albums, Saturation and Saturation II—on December 15th, they’ll round out the year with their third release, Saturation III. Last night, they dropped off the project’s first single and video, “BOOGIE”.
Part of Brockhampton’s allure is predicated on an encompassing artistry nestled in jarring lyrics and vivid storytelling—those intangibles take shape on the group’s many music videos. It’s part of what sets them a part from the densely crowded hip-hop scene: an unrivaled desire to simply be them, to be comfortable in their own skin.
“BOOGIE” is an upbeat number that finds the group harnessing their individual abilities for collective gain: Robert Ontentient’s Spanish introduction; Ameer Van’s complex rhyme schemes; Merlyn Wood’s zealous display; Kevin Abstract’s dynamic vocals. It’s these individual abilities grouped together that make Brockhampton so different, so enticing. Receiving critical acclaim on their first two projects, and judging by the greatness of “BOOGIE”, Saturation III is sure to be a sound bookend to the Saturation trilogy.
Watch “BOOGIE” below, and get ready for Saturation III dropping on Friday:
