Blackbear, ‘Bright Pink Tims’ | Track Review
Matthew Musto, better known as blackbear, has had a big year – understatement. His biggest claim to fame in 2017 is his hit single, “do re mi,” but it doesn’t stop there. He dropped a joint project with his bud, Mike Posner (Mansionz) as well as the parent album for his hit single, digital druglord. If he’s a bit cocky, it’s understandable, right? After dropping “playboy shit,” he returns with another new single, “Black Pink Tims.”
“Bright Pink Tims” opens with dark, mysterious, foreboding production work. The production work includes trap drum programming. Ultimately, the backdrop sets the tone for the record.
On the intro, blackbear opens with a flex-fest, which serves as part of the forthcoming chorus.
“Yeah, I make money, I start trends / My first car, it was a Benz.”
Blackbear pop-raps the first verse. While he doesn’t offer anything groundbreaking, this is a good look for him, if conformist. The chorus is confident and assured, intact with blackbear’s natural vocals and pitch-shifted, hip-hop oriented vocals.
“I get money, I start trends / My first car, it was a Benz, yeah / Lonely at top, no friends / See thorough shirt on, bright pink Timbs / Bright pink Timbs, bright pink Timbs…”
Cam’ron drops the second verse. It begins slightly questionable at first, but then he comes into his own.
All in all, “Bright Pink Tims” ends up being an enjoyable, respectable turn-up joint. Blackbear is in an excellent spot in his career. Cam’ron provides a lift. There’s nothing groundbreaking here, but as far as flex joints go, this one works without a hitch.
