While Maleek Berry has soared as a guest on a couple of 2019 gems — from Simi’s "Immortal" to GoldLink’s "Zulu Screams" — fans have been eager for the hit-maker to release a banger of his own. Well, he’s finally come through with his first single of 2019, "Flashy", and it’s exceptional.
Brilliantly produced by Maleek Berry himself, "Flashy" immediately stands out for two main reasons: For one, it’s probably the most instantly infectious single he has ever released; and secondly, we get to hear the beloved star, known for his inimitable vocals, rap rather impressively.
On the track, Maleek Berry also happens to take a very welcome break from singing about love, using this time, instead, to brag about all his accomplishments and dunk on his haters. "Boy, I am the sun, you be candle", he confidently declares on the song’s killer opening verse.
Before the release of the track, Maleek Berry said he had locked himself in the studio all year, clearly working on doling out bangers. Well, it looks like all that work was worth it, and if the remaining tracks he came up with are anything like "Flashy", then we are all in for a real treat.
