The pop star crossed over into hip-hop terrain this Friday (November 20) by featuring on the South Carolina rapper’s latest single, “My Reputation.” The record, which also includes ad-libs from Lil Duval, appears on Jeezy’s 15-track LP, The Recession 2, which dropped last night.
On “My Reputation,” Jeezy raps about the importance of remaining loyal to his lady love and — with ad-libs from Duval — brushes off all the he say she say about him in the streets. Lovato soars in on a sassy and confident chorus as she belts out powerhouse vocals.
"People always talk about/ Your reputation, oh/ But I don't care about those other girls/ Just speak up to me/ Oh woah, ooh woah," Lovato sings. "I ain't got no questions/ Don't care what they say/ And I will never listen/ Just me and my baby/ Tonight we got a session/ Victory's right in your face tonight/ You know who's runnin' this race tonight/ I'ma run no relay tonight."
Hours prior to its release, the 28-year-old took to Twitter with a clip of her singing along to the record from home. “YALLLLL I GOT A SONG COMING OUT TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT CALLED ‘REPUTATION’ WITH @lilduval AND MY BOY @Jeezy ON HIS NEW ALBUM,” she tweeted. “Y’all know what to do Lovatics!! Show some love!!!! Congrats @Jeezy!! I’m excited for our music together 🙏🏼💞”
So far, this year, Lovato has put out several solo songs including “Still Have Me,” "Anyone” and “I Love Me” — all of which are expected to appear on her upcoming seventh studio album, which remains to be announced.
