On Wednesday, May 23 at 3 p.m. ET, rapper Young Thug surprised fans by releasing his newest track “The London” featuring Travis Scott and J.Cole. The immediate response from fans on Twitter were positive. Young Thug has teased that he would be releasing new music, but no one expected the new song to be so good.

Seemingly taking notes from pop star Taylor Swift drumming up interest for her latest track “Me” featuring Brendon Urie, the Gold Mouf Dog’s website leading up “The London” featured a countdown clock.

Produced by T-Minus, the new song is available to stream on Spotify, iTunes and Apple Music. With the potential to be the song of the summer, it already has listeners singing “Meet me at The London” with the chorus that goes:
“You can meet me at the London
If you find time we can run one,
Y’all about some things we can undo,
You just send the pin, I can find you
6’1, on the money, 9’2.
You just say the word and I’ll run through
Two texts, no reply, that’s when I knew.”

Thug’s most recent release was in 2018 with his mixtape, SlimeLanguage. As for J.Cole, this marks his second collaboration just this week, the first being his new track with Ty Dolla Sign, “Purple Emoji.” Back in March, it was revealed the Cole would be producing Thug’s latest album, and it seems “The London” could be a taste of what’s to come when the full record is released.

While speaking to radio personality Angie Martinez, Cole said of Thugs, “If you wanna talk about Thug as like, an artist, he’s an innovator. You can call him a mumble rapper all you want, but if you know skills and the art of rapping, and you know like, how you put words together, you know pockets, you know flows, you know the things he does with his voice, dude is a genius.”

It’s rare for listeners to love ta song the moment it’s first heard, but based on the reactions on Twitter, “The London” is perfectly amping up the hype for Thug’s new album.
