Jeezy Enlists Janelle Monae for ‘Sweet Life’
While the thought of the 29-year-old eclectic singer joining forces with the Snowman seems odd, they bridge their sounds into a heater. Monae takes the lead for the chorus in the C4-produced effort.
"Sweet life, oh my, you turn this to life / All the darkness, scattered out of sight / I've been waiting on this for some time / Now that it's here, I'm gonna rewind," she sings.
Jeezy continues to give his sermons through rap as well as he reflects on the journey that led to his current success.
"I know you thought I wasn't lookin' but I was payin' attention / No you can't see through my shades, just know I'm smilin' inside / It's like the old me deceased, I'm kinda glad that I died / This that new and improved, this that I'm in the mood / You know he don't like to lose so why y'all fuckin' with dude?" Pastor Jeezy rhymes.
The new track arrives following his Politically Correct EP, which he dropped on the same day (Oct. 10) as the Million Man March. Experience the five-track project below.
