With summer heating up,  Jazmine Sullivan and Bryson Tiller add fuel to the fire with their surprise collab “Insecure.” The song is the first offering from the season two soundtrack of HBO’s cultural phenomenon TV show of the same name.

In a conversation-like style that mirrors the tug-of-war of main characters Issa and Lawrence, Sullivan and Tiller ask and answer in verses and ad-libs on this tune. Sullivan comes out sing-rapping with fiery fervor on the first verse before belting the song’s chorus.

“Why you got to be so insecure?/When I did all I could do, but you be wanting more/And why you can’t get up off my back?/And I can take a lot of sh*t but I won’t take that,” she sings.

Tiller responds to Sullivan’s pleas on the second verse.

“Stop trippin’ girl, you know me/I’m your homie/Don’t cut it off/We done said it all, we done it all/I want it all for myself/Sorry if I’m coming off insecure,” he sings.

Although music supervisor Kier Lehman announced that Sullivan and Tiller would be contributing to the soundtrack, it still comes as an unexpected surprise to fans of the artists and the show. Lehman also mentioned Kari Faux, Jorja Smith, and Miguel will be featured on this season’s soundtrack.

Insecure (the show) currently airs Sundays at 10:30 p.m. on HBO. “Insecure” (the song) is available on all digital platforms. You can stream the song on Spotify below.

Johnny Gill Readies ‘What Is This’ As Next Single

Let’s be honest, most album eras don’t run more than a year these days. Artists — mainly their labels — typically release three singles and a visual visuals. Johnny Gill is raising the bar, though.

The R&B vet has announced “What Is This” as his fifth single from his 2014 album, Game Changer. The record impacts urban adult contemporary radio today (Nov. 21).

The organ and drummed based track, reminiscent of Al Green’s earlier work, has Gill taking his time in the bedroom with his special lady. “Baby, let’s take our time / Girl, no need to rush, I wanna see everything / Know what I’m getting,” he coos.

Nearly three years since his Game Changer release, the “My, My, My” singer has seen urban AC radio success for four singles including its lead “Behind Closed Doors,” and his Jaheim-assisted single, “5000 Miles.”
