Mac has been on a roll lately since he has gotten clean (I’m assuming that does not include drinking and smoking, but whatever he’s doing seems to be a positive change). “We” is the second single to be released in preparation for the September 16 release of The Divine Feminine, and Mac brought on CeeLo Green. A few years ago I would commend this as a solid PR and press move on Mac’s part, but CeeLo has stepped back from the stoplight somewhat so I am assuming that it was an artistic decision. This is a bit more of a serious romantic song similar to the feel of “Youforia” from Watching Movies with the Sound Off. From the bit of casual stalking that I have done over the years, it is my understanding that Mac has a long time girlfriend of many years, which is extremely sweet.
Seeing that Chance the Rapper has had significant success both within circles of previous fans, and on popular radio stations with the integration of soulful and gospel features, both Chance and Mac seem to be on the same wavelength. The soulfulness of “We” from CeeLo and the song overall is similar to what Anderson .Pakk brought to “Dang!”, and I for one am definitely into it. I think that Mac has really struck a perfect balance with his light rhymes and deep vocals or feature. And I don’t think anyone would complain if Mac Miller and Chance the Rapper worked together seeing that they seem to be on the same route lately…
