NLE Choppa has recruited some big names for "Angel Part. 1". On the highly-anticipated collaboration soundtrack for "Fast X", the Memphis trade verses with the likes of Kodak Black, BTS (Bangtan Boys) star Jimin, JVKE and Muni Long.
The five artists also appear in the visuals of the song. While Choppa, JVKE and Kodak film their scenes separately, Jimina and Muni show up together in some scenes.
Singing the first verse is JUVKE, which reads, "Angel, don't fly so close to me/ I pull you down eventually/ You don't want to lose those wings/ People like me break beautiful things." Kodak then chimes in, "I give it all up to ease your pain, yeah, I would do that all day/ I stepped back from the game to keep you out of harm's way.
In the second verse, Choppa spits, "Struggle never broke us, it just made us who we is/ Losses taught a lot of lessons/ Made the wins feelin' like blessings." He goes on, "Family all that you got at the end/ Hope you get the message/ I ain't tryin' to make it without you/ But if I got to then I got you."
"Angel Part. 1" arrived ahead of the "Fast X" Friday, May 19 release. Speaking of collaboration, Choppa told POPSUGAR, "Sometimes you get a song with five strong artists, and it sounds like a mashup, but on this song, everyone had a role. It's like a basketball team: everybody played it well and just made the most beautiful song we can make.
Of working with Jimin, the 20-year-old emcee gushed, "I've actually been for a while manifesting wanting to work with BTS and to be able to work with just one of the guys from BTS - on the Fast and Furious soundtrack, something so big - I feel like it's a beautiful thing, and it's one of those things I prayed for." He then raved, "So, every time you hear BTS in my mouth or Jimin in my mouth, there's gonna be a thank you behind it, because I'm just grateful knowing how big that scene is and grateful to know how big the impact they have on K-pop is in general."
