Mustard’s “Pure Water” continues to blaze a trail across the Billboard charts, keeping the Migos’ collective presence strong despite a hiatus of sorts. Now, with his upcoming album in the pipeline, Mustard has officially delivered his new single “100 Bands,” with a truly star-studded lineup of featured guests. The track features YG, 21 Savage, Meek Mill, and Quavo, and looks to arrive alongside an elaborate and cinematic visual. Case in point, Mustard’s announcement trailer below, which provides our first glimpse at the visuals to come upon its widespread release tomorrow.
After discovering an exotic car amidst a flaming desert wreckage, Mustard peels off to the dulcet tones of Quavo. For the most part, the Migosrapper appears to be keeping comfortably within his wheelhouse, bringing his signature flavor as he repeats the track’s namesake. Instrumentally, “100 Bands” is highly percussive, with racing hi-hats dominating the mix. “10 bands in the right hand,” boasts Quavo. “10 bands, 10 bands in my left hand, make her best friend be her hypeman,” he raps, as Mustard’s drag-racing intensifies.
The track is currently out in select international markets, with the North American release coming at midnight. To those who have heard the track, who do you think had the best verse?
