In light of his new relationship with Arianna Grande, Mac is clearly in a very romantic mindset, and his most recent album is extremely indicative of that. From what I’ve read, Mac has decided that the whole hookup rapper culture is not for him. He appears to be a real relationship man, not based on previous songs and videos, but recently he appears to have matured a bit.
The Divine Feminine is exactly this, it has consistent overtones of femininity. It is still sexually explicit, but less demeaning and more in appreciation of women and the female form. Throughout the album, Mac uses horns and string instruments which gives it the feeling of a classic ballad or romantic song. Although this album was rather short, Mac did have a few features including Anderson.Paak, Ty Dolla $ign, CeeLo Green, Arianna Grande and Kendrick Lamar. It might not be my favorite work from Mac Miller, but there are a few highlights that I enjoy. These are “Dang!”, “Stay”, “Cinderella” (feat. Ty. Dolla $ign), “My Favorite Part”, and “God Is Fair, Sexy Nasty” (feat. Kendrick Lamar).
