Nearing a possible album release in 2018, King Combs keeps his fans fed well with his newest record, “Love You Better” featuring Chris Brown. The song features the New York native rapping about an ex-significant other. “You could’ve had Christian and Christian Dior. Now you just miss and I’m missin’ you more,” Combs raps. Breezy delivers on the chorus that features the age-old question, “Tell me how to make things right?” The record feels and looks very much like a classic 90’s record not only because of its content but also because it features many of the same samples used by legends like Nas and The Notorious B.I.G.
The three-minute love letter kicks off with a sample from the Ultramagnetic MC’s “Ease Back”, which was most notably used in Nas’s “Take It In Blood” on the 1996 classic album, ‘It Was Written’. Later, the record features a sample from Schooly D’s “What Does It Mean”, which has been used in countless songs ranging from Case’s “Touch Me, Tease Me” to The Notorious B.I.G’s “B.I.G Interlude”. For all intents and purposes, if King Combs could’ve released this record in the 1990’s and it would have still been a success. The timeless sound of the record is what it makes it stand out.
The record, which is available on all major streaming services, shows that King Combs is far from a star dependent on his father’s success. King Combs ability to float through a track with an assist from one of the biggest stars in music shows that he is here to stay based off of his own skill and talent. Heading into the later parts of 2018, King Combs will be expected to deliver on his next project and we are excited to see what he can add the next generation of New York hip-hop and beyond.
