.This New P-Lo Track Is “So Right” For Your Summer Playlist

This morning, HBK Gang rapper and producer P-Lo surprised fans with three new tracks, announcing the drop via a succinct tweet that read, “New music coming right now doe,” followed by links to his Soundcloud.

In his new song “So Right,” P-Lo is on his way to steal your girl. It tells a rapper’s timeless tale of forbidden passion: wanting another man’s woman, who just happens to want him back — and even though it feels so wrong, it feels so right.

Produced by Kuya Beats and Zack Mack, the track balances party-paced high-hats and pounding bass with intricate riffs played across the frets of a nylon-stringed guitar. The guitar adds an acoustic, throwback vibe to P-Lo’s smooth-talking rhymes (think Nelly’s “Ride Wit Me” if Nelly were from the Bay).

“So Right” is a collaboration with rising Oakland R&B singer Samaria. Her emotive vocals give the song’s hook a bright, sensual melody that’s hard not to sway to.

The song is warm, light-hearted, and has a beat that slaps. It’s the perfect reason to add some P-Lo to your summer playlist if you haven’t already.


Correction: This article previously didn’t mention Zack Mack as a co-producer of “So Right.”
