Wiz Khalifa Debuts ‘Stayin Out All Night’

After joining forces with Ty Dolla $ign and Snoop Dogg for the party-ready ‘You and Your Friends‘ earlier this week, Wiz Khalifa serves up another slice of his upcoming ‘Blacc Hollywood’ album.

Between his hit single ‘We Dem Boyz’ and ’28 Grams’ mixtape, the Taylor Gang general has been in “Trap Wiz” mode for most of the year. However, he switches up his sound — one that’s perhaps more in line with his previous albums — on this new track, ‘Stayin Out All Night.’

While the song is still very much a party anthem, it’s noticeably more detached than enthralled in the celebrations. “I’ma leave all my problems out on the floor / I’ma drink so much that I can’t make it home,” Wiz harmonizes on the bridge with a melancholic tone.

The sparse production soon reaches a climax, where an anthemic, acoustic backdrop refocuses our attention to the party at hand. But that’s only for a brief period as Wiz dips back into his insular rhymes: “You work hard for what you got / They could never take it from you.”

Sure, his metaphors are typically boastful, but for a moment, it sounds like Wiz openly acknowledges that his smoking and drinking habits might be a coping mechanism for something that’s below the surface, and something that’s more serious than just a hangover.

Slated to hit shelves on Aug. 19, ‘Blacc Hollywood’ is available to pre-order now on iTunes.

UPDATE: Wiz Khalifa’s record label Atlantic has requested that we remove this song because it was leaked. We apologize for the inconvenience and will update this post with the stream once it’s been officially released.
