AceShowbiz - G-Eazy has unleashed a new track titled "The Beautiful & Damned". The release of the track, which features Zoe Nash, came a few days after the 28-year-old rapper unveiled track and music video for "The Plan" on November 9.
The three-minute song finds G-Eazy spitting lines about his struggle with the angels and demons within him. In the first verse, he raps about the dark side of being a celebrity. "I know a Gemini can be confusing/ Split right down the middle like there's two of me," he raps. "No hiding, I bare all nudity/ This is everything that comes with celebrity/ Criticism, ridicule and the scrutiny."
Zoe lends her voice for the hook, showcasing her soulful vocals. "Ever seen a devil with a halo/ Ever seen an angel with some horns/ Everybody got their own demons," she rhymes. "Everybody got their own demons/ Everybody fightin' their own war."
The song is the title track off G-Eazy's upcoming fifth studio album, "The Beautiful & Damned", which is due out on December 15. Speaking to Billboard, the Oakland rapper revealed that the album would be a 20-track double album. It will include features from his girlfriend Halsey, Kehlani, E-40, Charlie Puth, Anna of the North, A$AP Rocky, Cardi B and more. The rapper will also release a short movie that comes along with the album.
"Like being a kid, having the dream of doing this, starting from square one, from outside looking in from without having nothing -- to chasing this dream," he spoke of the concept of the album. "And the all these years down the road following this yellow brick road trying to get to where you're going, one day waking up and being like, 'Did it take me where I wanted to go?' this fantasy of like, sex, drugs, and rock and roll is kinda cliched, but it's cliche for a reason. It's dark."
