Casanova, Tory Lanez, & Davido Unite For Dancehall Jam "2AM"
The wee hours of the morning have proven to be influential for creatives across the boards. Eminem tapped into the Witching Hour to give us “3AM.” 2 Chainz and Travis Scott stayed up past their bedtimes for the low-key rager “4 AM.” Now, the unexpected trifecta of Casanova, Tory Lanez, and Davido have decided to shine a light on “2AM,” contributing a dancehall-flavored banger to the game. As Tory and Davido are good and familiar with the sonic aesthetic, the single marks a stylistic departure for the New York rapper, who once made waves through his aggressive, teeth-shattering bangers.
Though Tory andDavido alike hold it down with the melodies, Casanova remains true to his roots, spitting game in the vein of “thugluv.” “Yeah, girl, you know you fuckin’ with a shotta,” he raps. “Come here, let me give it to you proper.” For the most part, the infectious nature of the track doesn’t require much in the way of lyricism, so one must be satisfied off the strength of vibe alone. Should you enjoy this style, you’ll likely find something to cherish here, though it’s unlikely to convert the skeptics and fence-sitters. Still, it’s a good look for Casanova, who continues to show he’s willing to experiment in a game where longevity is valued above all.
