Shenseea Shares Inspiration Behind Collab With Yo Gotti, “Forever Ballin'” From His New Album CM10.
The Jamaican singer continues to find her footing on some of the biggest hip hop releases of recent months, this time appearing on Yo Gotti’s latest album to her fans after nearly three decades in music.
Gotti is doubling down on giving back to his fans on CM10: free game and incorporates the likes of Kodak Black, Moneybagg Yo, Blac Youngsta, 42 Dugg, EST Gee and the only woman to maintain it, Shenseea. The “Lick” rapper had already received a ton of backlash from fans for his recent collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion. For many, Shen’s January release lacked the lyrical thump and melodic pop the artist has given fans since his breakthrough. With that in mind, fans and critics of ShenYeng should be pleased with his latest performance on Gotti’s project “Forever Ballin’.”
Yo Gotti divides his project into Side A – dubbed Free, and Side B – dubbed Game. “Forever Ballin'” is all about the game, and Shenseea leads the charge with a stellar chorus capturing the essence of perseverance and self-confidence.
“Never mind the shit I’m going through, I know the ammo is fine, I tell myself I won’t give up until the day I die, life is hard but I don’t want it to be easy for me , fuck everyone who don’t believe in me, ammo keep giving it all, yeah ammo will forever be playing Yo,” she said.
Shenseea also got a chance to show off her vocal range on the track’s hook and outro, as she provides words of inspiration to everyone who tunes into the “free play.” Gotti does not disappoint, as he adds bars on the best wisdom bars for anyone looking to get out of the struggle.
Shenseea shares that she wrote her verses on the day of remembrance of her late mother, who died suddenly in 2020.
“This song is so special to me because it was made on my mother’s memorial day, I wrote it from my heart, reassuring me and motivating me to keep going. I hope it will be the same for all of you! #ForeverBallin @yogotti CM10 now,” she said.
As for Gotti, the rapper isn’t necessarily retiring, just focusing on new talent on his roster and other big business. The rapper is now co-owner of Major League Soccer team DC United, giving ‘Forever Ballin’ a whole new meaning.
Other exciting tracks from the album produced by CMG, formerly Cocaine Muzik Group, include “Just Left The Hamptons” and “Family Tree.”
Shenseea is currently in the running for her first Grammy after her feature on Kanye West’s “Ok Ok pt 2” on her 2021 project donda. The album was nominated in the category of Best Rap Album. She is also preparing to release her album titled Alpha on March 11, 2022.
