Does Rivers Cuomo ever take any time off? Not only has the Weezer frontman been hard at work on his band's upcoming Black Album and surprise covers album The Teal Album, but he's also been releasing solo songs and collaborations. His latest side project dropped on Friday (February 1), when the singer lended his vocals to Snakehips new single "Gucci Rock N Rolla." The upbeat anthem also features rapper KYLE.
After giving love to f**k ups and 7th grade drop outs, Cuomo sings "Feelin' like a baller/ Gucci Rock N Rolla/ Never gettin' older/ I'm a Gucci Rock N Rolla" in the infectious chorus before handing the mic off to KYLE.
The electronic duo spoke about the collaboration in a statement, calling themselves “huge Weezer fans.”
“It was just crazy that someone we respect so much was really into our vibe,” they said of Cuomo.
