Belly Drops “Consuela” Featuring Young Thug and Zack and “The Day I Met You”
Belly has quietly been putting out serious heat over the last two years. He struck gold with “Might Not” featuring his close friend and XO ringleader The Weeknd. The song became Belly’s first charting song, peaking at No. 68 on the Hot 100.
Today on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show, the Canadian MC released a snippet of his new song "Consuela" featuring Young Thug and Zack. He then premiered the entire song and "The Day I Met You" with Billboard. Both new singles will be on his upcoming mixtape titled Inzombia dropping tomorrow (Nov. 11)
Over loud horns and hypnotizing drums, Belly shines on "Consuela." "I think I'm falling for Consuela/She's from the slums of Venezuela," he raps. It's melodic and will surely find its way on the radio.
For "The Day I Met You," Belly raps about wishing he never met his ex. "Fuck the day that I met you/I'm smoking all this weed just to forget you" he croons on the hook.
"It goes back to my ideology when it comes to making great music. You gotta create music with your friends. You gotta create music with people that you feel a vibe with," Belly said to Zane Lowe when asked working with Young Thug and Zack. "I've been blessed to spend a lot of time in the studio and figure out the formula. So, I just enjoy it when I can do something like that with my friends."
Belly also added that he has an album coming out in 2017. He also expands about the mixtape and the work he has in the stash.
"It's a collection of work that I did. In this music thing, a lot of people don't understand that there's personal things that are going on too," he says. "Although this was my biggest year musically, a lot of crazy things happened to me and I felt like I needed a whole body of work to just get it out there and explain my feelings and my side of the story."
InZombia features Jadakiss, Future, Ty Dolla $ign and Ashanti. Peep the tracklist below.
The Roc Nation signee released his fantastic mixtape Another Day in Paradise back in July. The project contained 12 songs with guest appearances from Juicy J, Waka Flocka Flame, Lil Wayne, B-Real, Kehlani and Travis Scott.
