Saba Looks Back at His Journey for New Song “There You Go”
Saba marks his return with "There You Go." The smooth single is co-produced by Oakland-based multi-instrumentalist Daoud and Saba himself plus Herbie One on the trumpet. The newly-turned 23-year-old Chicago rapper/producer has seen his star power rise since releasing his excellent 2016 Bucket List Project. "There You Go" finds Saba reflecting on his journey.
"I can never fold/I'm 'bout my coin like the laundry tho'/I get my paper then adios/Youngin' with bars like a audy home/Saba but well known like sabido/Sober but got off a addy doe/I tell the truth on like every song/I drop a classic that's Abbey Road," Saba raps.
"There You Go" is the first new solo release from Saba since his cousin and fellow PIVOT artist John Walt aka DinnerWithJohn was murdered in Chicago in February. To honor DinnerWithJohn, Saba announced John Walt Day, a concert benefiting Chicago youth on Nov. 25 at House of Blues.
