It has been months since we had first heard rumors of a potential Migos breakup, and at this point, not having a definitive answer has been somewhat frustrating. Of course, I hope that this is all a myth and these rumors have no validity to them, but I’m the type of person who personally likes to know definitive answers, and this is one piece of information that I feel like we may not receive anytime soon. Clearly, all three members of the supergroup have done completely fine on their own throughout individual endeavors, albums, and features throughout the years, but I just personally feel like none of them are quite as dominant apart from one another as they are when they’re unified as one.
Clearly, each member has their own strengths, as every artist does, and when they are on the same track, they’re able to exploit these talents, leading to smash hits left and right. If you haven’t been completely ignoring the hip-hop world, you probably already know that Quavo and Takeoff have been steadily releasing bangers since the breakup rumors began, and although Offset has had his own contributions to songs for other artists and made some noise, he has been a bit more low key than his counterparts.
Well, that was until he dropped his song “5 4 3 2 1”, and I think everything is about to change. I feel this way because it’s not just any ordinary song. It was produced by massive names like Baby Keem and Mike Dean as well as other celebrated beat smiths such as Jahaan Akil Sweet, Ruchaun Maurice Akers Jr, and Scott Bridgeway, giving Offset an unusual foundation than ones we’re normally used to hearing him jump on.
His tenure in the music game is obvious, though, because he raps his heart out, spitting dominant triplet flows with enthusiasm and charisma, something that is further expanded on in the Zachary Bailey and Offset-directed visual as well. This video shows the emcee enjoying a day at an amusement park, taking over the grounds as his own for a solo day of fun on rides all throughout the park. Honestly, I can’t say this is my all-time favorite song by the Atlanta superstar, but it was definitely uncharacteristic and unique which will always capture my attention, so make sure you don’t miss out on it much longer!
