Young Thug — January 1st (feat. Jacquees & Trap Boy Freddy)

Updated: Dec 26, 2018



While Slime Language was highly anticipated, it was a pain to get through. Poorly placed features threw off the flow of the tape, and Young Thug left little room to shine for himself. After all, fans tuned in to hear exactly that, and the lack of focus turned many listeners away. Much of the tracklist was filler, and Young Thug's sisters and girlfriend both claimed guest spots, adding nothing to the tape. However, “January 1st” is a standout; it's wonderfully catchy, and boasts one of the best beats on the tape. Jacquees has an undeniable ear for melody, and lays down an ear worm of a chorus.
