From the very outset, "Drip" is an inescapable, flawless blend of nostalgic and modern pieces, including sound production. This beat, born from dance-driven pop in the last decade, gushes out irresistibly with its pulsating basslines and crisp percussion that keeps moving to build a dynamic foundation.
