It's not on par with most of the material on her studio albums, but definitely better than the stand alone singles she released over the years ('Download', 'Mine', 'Looks Like Money' etc). The beat is hypnotic. Video looks cool.

Glad to have her back. Apparently this is her pre-album single. The lead single will be released in January. I hope she come through.

It's getting better with every play. I just wish she wouldn't mumble so much.

Beat is red hot.

After listening to the whole thing - I take back what I said. I'm not even sure I'd know it was her. The vocal efx are a mess.

But it's not a terrible track, and the video looks nice. I just hope we hear her real voice and it still bites when the album comes out.

Does Geisha Kim think she’s Future with this?

She could’ve did SOMETHING with this beat besides mumble.

She’s been doing the mumble thing for awhile it’s annoying and the auto tune really has never suited her. BUT it looks like she means business finally I hope she can produce a good album. I like all her albums so far.

we took us a break but we back now 8-)

I love it now. Yes, she mumbles a bit too much, but the song's hot.
I really hope she comes even harder with her next single and that she will finally release that album.
For the 'first official single' (January 2018) she should collaborate with another rapper to get more exposure. Someone like French Montana.
