Few people in the rap game can meld sticky melodies and raw lyricism like Chicago superstar Lil Durk. Taking time to celebrate the successful release of his new album, Durk retreat to an ATL mansion in “U Said,” his latest video. Produced by Jahaan Sweet, Boi-1da & Charlie Handsome, “U Said” is a bright and summer-ready single, complete with afropop-influenced percussion and lush, reverbed synthesizers–it’s the type of track that begs to be played at a poolside BBQ. The new video adds to the summer vibe, as Durk and guest artist A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie head to a lakeside mansion with some beautiful guests, Durk shining in an all-white suit and a brightly-patterned shawl. “U Said” is the latest video from Love Songs 2 The Streets 2, Durk’s new album that peaked at #2 (or really number one?) on Apple Music’s all-genre charts upon its release, and debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200 with 44,000 album-equivalent units and 52.7 million streams.
