The world is about to get another dose of R&B fire from young Eric Bellinger. L.A.’s very own is set to release his brand new album, Term 2, on March 10th, but before the album drops, the crooner debuts his brand new Wale-assisted single “Treat Yourself” with VIBE.
Over a airy backdrop, Eric B handles the vocals while Wale falls through with a stellar verse as the fellas remind themselves of what they deserve. “If I want it, I’m get it/If I got it, I’m spend it/I don’t care what it cost…I’ve been working for the lifestyle/And I’m trying to live it right now,” Bellinger says on the track.
“”Treat Yourself” is easily one of my favorite joints on the project. I love all of the songs but this one is special to me because it’s the first time I’m actually being kind of braggadocios on a record. Over the years I’ve had some success and I tend to keep quiet about my personal life especially in the department of material things. I thought it was time to let people know what time it is, ” Eric B tells VIBE.
The chemistry between Wale and Bellinger is continues to evolve. Previously, the two recently collaborated on “One Reason” and “Spare Time (Remix).” Bellinger also spoke on working with Wale on a new project.
“Wale is someone I’ve been working super closely with lately. It was genuine, it was organic. When he heard the song he immediately hopped on. It’s always great working with Wale, I’m actually headed to the studio to work with him now for his new project. There’s never any effort put forth when we work, it’s crazy. Our chemistry alone could write a hit record. We’re both extremely passionate about the art and the culture. It’s rare to meet someone that actually cares about the music and the feeling behind it nowadays so when we linked we pretty much clicked instantly and it’s been magic ever since.”
Eric’s Term 2 album is available for pre-order over at iTunes now.
