Southside has released his new single, “Save Me” featuring longtime collaborator, Lil Durk today. The track follows the success of his previous single, “Hold That Heat” featuring Travis Scott and Future. Listen to it now below.
“Save Me” is a glimpse into the brand of production that helped make Southside a household name over the course of the last decade. The Atlanta native has a prolific ear, and has proved deft at providing the perfect canvasses for his collaborators, whether it’s the shrill, 808s-heavy concoctions he and Future are known for working with, or the subdued trap melodies found on Drake and Future’s What a Time to be Alive album. With the versatile Lil Durk on vocal duty this go-round, Southside’s production shines, providing a melodic backdrop laden with unsparing bass, a soundscape that Durk has found a multi-platinum home in. Southside’s career is characterized by his ability to adapt, tailoring his production to the strengths of his featured artists, and “Save Me” is a crash course.
The music video aligns with Southside and Durk’s chemistry, as the duo races through the city tearing through the town, enjoying the spoils of their stardom. Southside, often behind the scenes of his masterpieces, is front-and-center in “Save Me.” His musicality, however, remains the star of the show.
