Memphis superstar Moneybagg Yo has unveiled his seductive new single “Quickie.” Over the famous Lamont Dozier sample that provided the foundation for Outkast’s “Jazzy Belle,” Bagg details a string of short encounters and the little mind games that keep relationships hypnotizing. “Quickie” is accompanied by a titillating video set in a strip club. In the Diesel Filmz-directed clip, Bagg eyes a dancer with equal parts lust and suspicion as he hands over bills.
It’s the tension between mood and content that makes “Quickie” one of the year’s most compulsively replayable singles. Usually, a song that details lovers so vividly would be a pure celebration—or sound like it was made to be played during the act. But “Quickie” adds a hint of mournfulness. When Bagg notes that he and his girl “came from different planets” before becoming “intertwined,” the chemistry is made to sound powerful but also a little foreboding.
