As spring slowly turns to summer, it seems like Cochise season is finally upon us. Today the Benbow Crescent star returns with his second single of 2022 “Turn It Up”, an explosive and cinematic blend of cloud rap and Cochise’s signature charm. 2022 has been a busy year for the Florida rapper – between gearing up for his next studio LP THE INSPECTION and touring with Aminé and 454, our king has had a lot on his plate recently. Whether you view “Turn It Up” as the latest step of an album rollout or the result of pent-up creative energy is not important, as “Turn It Up” has immediately become my song of the summer…and it’s not even summer yet. Regardless of relationship status or sexual orientation, Cochise’s new banger is guaranteed to have you standing on the table screaming “I GOT TWO GIRLS / AND THEY TOO DIFFERENT”. I have no idea what drug Cochise is pumping into his tracks, but there’s something so infectiously hypnotic about the mixes he chooses and the vocal performances he so effortlessly lays down. Between his eclectic energy and the borderline heavenly beat switch that happens around the song’s second act, “Turn It Up” is nothing if not guaranteed to colonize your weekly rotation immediately. While little is known about Cochise’s forthcoming LP, “Turn It Up” is just one of many reasons to get excited. Will fans finally be treated to a 454 collab? Perhaps more songs about Anime and video games? Only time will tell, but the moment Cochise returns with new music, you can bet that I’ll be listening.
