There was no warning on Friday morning when Offset dropped off a single that will be included on his forthcoming solo project. Produced by Metro Boomin, “Red Room” is already on repeat over here. Although Offset jumps onto the beat almost immediately, the few seconds where Metro’s seductive fluttering harp sounding synths open the song are mesmerizing.
“Red Room” is going to be a problem. This single is hypnotizing, and you’ll be entranced by Offsets auto-tuned laced croons over the dreamy instrumental. “I’m talking about relevant situations that have occurred over the last 18 or 24 months, like me being in the crash, my kids, my family time and me being married,” Offset told Billboard in reference to the direction of the new album. “There’s different parts of my life. The ups and downs of being in music, the feeling of people doubting me and being the underdog to becoming the big dog.” If “Red Room” is a peek at what’s to come, Offset has a firestorm on the way.
