Summer officially started today. Cousin Stizz blessed us with a new single titled “Headlock” featuring Offset of Migos and produced by Vinylz; a superstar lineup. The single from his upcoming mixtape One Night Only was premiered by Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio at 12:20, and Lowe liked it so much he ran it back 5 times. It’s safe to say that Stizz shut down Beats 1 today, and this record is going to be everywhere soon. Before the song premiered, Lowe also announced the release date for One Night Only which is May 12. It’s only about a month away, and based on “Headlock”, Stizz could do anything between now and then. This release date is a bit earlier than when Stizz’s first two mixtapes were released, but it looks like the Boston rapper is looking to own the summer by dropping a little bit earlier. And “Headlock” makes it seem like he will do so. You can hear the song on Soundcloud below and it’s also on Apple Music and Spotify.
From Zane Lowe on Beat 1 Radio today:
“”Magic just happened. I lost track of how many times we ran that back.”
