For months, fans have had one question for New Jersey native Chris Patrick. When is “Lead Me On” going to drop? After months of teasing the melodic record on social media, the rising star is the one who gets to ask the tough questions.
“If I’m not who you say you want, why’d you lead me on so long?” he sings on his new record.
Days away from the release of Chris Patrick’s latest project, X-Files, the New Jersey artist has delivered the highly-anticipated single. As expected, it delivers a melodic, upbeat feel that is only amplified by the addictive vocals of Erykah Officer. Midway through the single, Erykah Officer offers a response to Chris Patrick’s central question.
“I can admit I was trippin’. I should’ve gave you permission. [I should’ve] gave you the business. How could I let clout cloud my vision,” Eryka Officer asks.
“[I acted] like I’m too cool for commitment. That’s all I want.”
“Lead Me On” serves as the perfect segue into X-Files. Recently, the rising star shared the album with a few close friends and fans in Los Angles and the reception was great to say the least.
“That sh*t sounds crazy,” one fan by the name of Candace said after the listening session.
“That n*gga has dance songs on there. The n*gga got crying songs on there. That n*gga said he might kill himself.”
X-Files is set to drop on August 10. For now, check out “Lead Me On” featuring Erykah Officer below.
