After rapper Jack Harlow poppin ‘with his hit album, he released a new studio album that includes a track with his new “best friend” Chris Brown!
Jack Harlow ended 2020, a banner year for him professionally, with a bang. The 22-year-old rapper from Louisville, Kentucky blew up his viral hit “Whats Poppin” and dropped his first studio album “Thats What They All Say” on December 11th. It features many performances from friends and fellow rappers like Lil baby, great Sean, Bryson Tiller, static majorand Jack’s new “best friend” Chris Brown. 31-year-old Chris joined Jack on the track “Already Best Friends” and is not only a smart reference from Step Brothers, but also has an even more adult message than the R-rated comedy.
Jack and Breezy sing about intersecting with two newly formed best friends, which of course leads to a ménage à trois situation. “Two at a time, lying in my bed / one on top and the other giving my head / girl oh girl, I love the taste,” Breezy sings with his usual suppleness. Despite the X-rated lyrics, the track is really a touching ode to friendship. After Jack asked the fictional best friends where their “men” are, he sings, “She said, ‘What is this?’ and they smiled at each other and both laughed / I don’t need a man, they my other half / We have something that not many others have / And I feel like I know her from the past. ”A threesome with a nice backstory!
Jack Harlow (born Jackman Thomas Harlow) has been active in hip-hop via Cool Accidents since he was 12. Together with members, he was part of the Private Garden creative collective Lucci, 2fo, Shloob, and Ace Pro. “I wrote little raps here and there and listened to music,” he told Cool Accidents. “I studied it – I love rap, I thought this is what I want to do, I want to be a rapper.” His hard work has paid off. In 2018 he signed with Atlantic Records and released his major label mixtape Loose.

He continued to build up until his (probably) breakthrough “Whats Poppin”. The hit went viral on TikTok and hit the charts. It reached number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and is currently triple platinum. In addition, Jack was part of the XXL 2020 Freshman Class alongside other rising stars 24kGoldn, Baby Keem, NLE Choppa, and Chika.
“That’s the only thing, but I’m glad to appreciate it,” Jack told Cool Accidents of Whats Poppin, which finds love on TikTok. “But there are so many other things that I balance out when writing, you know, things that I want from music, that I just didn’t throw TikTok’s success into the mix. You know what I mean? There are so many other things that I want from music, but I mean, ideally, TikTok keeps hugging because it’s obviously powerful. “
What they all say has no apostrophes but a lot of controversy in its features. Chris Brown brings his own luggage from his long-documented domestic abuse Rihanna to the texts of “Loyal” to his treatment of Karrueche Tran. Jack Harlow’s album also includes the remix “Whats Poppin” Lil Wayne and Tory Lanez. Wayne came under fire for assistance Donald Trump that year, and Tory was charged with assault after allegedly shooting Megan Thee stallion. When Jack was asked if he would like to include Tory on his album, he defended the decision. “I don’t think I am God,” Jack told Power 106 Pro Complex. “I have no room to judge anyone. I wasn’t there when this and that happened, I don’t know anything. “He also said that there is“ a certain integrity that you have to maintain as an artist ”and that“ every story has three sides ”.
