Berner dropped off his latest project, El Chivo, on Cinco De Mayo. The project has more than enough bangers, but “Still Alive” featuring A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and G-Eazy stands out. The instrumental samples Spandau Ballet’s song “True,” which will be familiar to those who remember Lloyd’s single “You.” Smooth and classic, the sample always delivers. A Boogie takes chorus duties, as expected, and croons about the balance of love and hate.
G-Eazy takes command of the last verse on the record after Berner spits on the first two. His finale puts the icing on the cake for the single, which plays out with Eazy and Boogie laying down outro ad-libs. Although “Still Alive” can be enjoyed anywhere, the relaxing instrumental meshes well with a smoking session.
