Eric Bellinger and Wale Link for New Song “Treat Yourself”
Eric Bellinger drops his newest single featuring Wale titled "Treat Yourself," which is from Bellinger's upcoming Eric B For President: Term 2 project, due on March 10. The song is a banger, blending Eric's silky smooth lyrics with Wale's witty rhymes. The two work really well together on the track, which you can hear below.
"Wale is someone I've been working super closely with lately," says Eric Bellinger through email. "When he heard the song he immediately hopped on. 'Treat Yourself' is easily one of my favorite joints on the project. I love all of the songs but this one is special to me because it's the first time I'm actually being kind of braggadocious on a record. I thought it was time to let people know what time it is - 'I deserve that whip right there/ I deserve to pull up to that big house in my name."
"I deserve that whip right there, yeah/I deserve to pull up to that big house in my main/I deserve that drip right there, yeah/Bust down on my Rolex, on my chain/Sometimes you gotta treat yourself," Eric B sings
Wale adds his verse on the hit song, "I deserve that bitch right there, bitch right there/She don't even deserve a no nigga for a name/And you there sir, your bitch right there/You treat that bitch like dirt, well dirty bitches gon' do the same/Gotta treat yourself, but I'ma treat you better/If I like you shawty, I'ma treat you wetter."
Including Wale, Elhae, Victoria Monet, and Tayla Parx will be features artists on Eric B For President: Term 2. The new project follows up Eric B For President: Term 1 and the EP's acoustic version that dropped last year.
The West Coast singer discussed the inspiration behind Term 2. "The vibe for Term 2 is island-y, fit for a tropical vacation," he explains. "When Obama left office, he went jet-skiing on vacation. I’m taking that approach to give a sense of relaxation and chill and positive vibes in light of the new presidency. It’s a dark time, so I wanted to take the opposite approach and make something light and fun."
