4batz lives up to the hype with debut album “U Made Me A St4r”

4batz seemingly came out of nowhere. He turned heads on TikTok and then exploded with the Drake remix for his song “Act II: Date @ 8.” Since then, the R&B singer has signed to OVO and kicked off a wild hype cycle for his debut album, You made me a st4r. 4batz’s meteoric rise has led some fans to call him an industrial plant, but now that the album is finally here, we can listen and decide for ourselves. We’re happy to report that 4batz is the real deal. If you like laid-back soul music from artists like Brent Faiyaz and PARTYNEXTDOOR, you’ll also like You made me a st4r.

“Act II: Date @ 8” fits seamlessly into the tracklist here, despite being a hit single. The seductive jam is still short, clocking in at under two minutes, but part of its appeal lies in leaving listeners wanting more. The second single, “Act V: There Goes Another Vase”, furthered 4batz’s aesthetic. Sultry yet sad lyrics (Bryson Tiller fans unite) and instrumentals indebted to ’90s Timbaland. Brent Fayiaz really dipped into the Timbo bag on his last mixtape, but 4batz manages to channel this influence in a less overt way to exercise. “Act VI: Mad Men” and “Act VIII: I Hate to Be Alone” are dark explorations of messy romance that live up to their titles.

4batz creates an intoxicating atmosphere throughout the album

Kanye West is the sole lead actor You made me a st4r (the aforementioned Drake remix is ​​not included). This is a strange choice on several levels. First, 4batz signs with OVO, which is run by Kanye’s least favorite artist in the world. Secondly, the Chicago rapper doesn’t really fit in with the chill vibe of the rest of the album. Kanye has become an agent of chaos, and while his verse isn’t bad, it sticks out like a sore thumb. You made me a st4r is otherwise a success, provided you don’t mind having heard several songs before release.
