Genre-bending artist Duckwrth and Syd have teamed up for a new song titled “Ce Soir.”
Over a sugary, pulsing production, Duckwrth and Syd exchange verses about their nighttime plans with a special woman, respectively.
“Tell the truth, I just wanted an excuse / To talk about the sweetest things that I would like to do / The love below is calling / And I got the sweetest tooth / Call me like candy man, and I’ll appear like Poof,” Duckwrth melodically raps.
A suave Syd comes in for the second verse, confidently singing about her intent for steamy fun, making it clear that she’s also down for a ménage à trois with her lady’s friend.
“Now, listen here baby / I won’t say it again / It’s lookin like the night is ready to end / How bout we get in the whip? / It could be you or you and your friend / She isn’t gay but she says can pretend / Then we can have us a sip / I can pour us up a glass of that,” Syd sings.
“Ce Soir” is paired with a video directed by Mancy Gant, which finds Duckwrth and Syd caught in a love triangle.
Duckwrth will release his new EP, Chrome Bull, on Aug. 26 via STEM. The follow-up to 2021’s SG8 will also include the previously shared “Power Power” featuring Shaun Ross.
On Sept. 14, Duckwrth will kick off his headlining Chrome Bull Tour in Santa Barbara, California. From there, he will play in major cities across North America, including Salt Lake City, Denver, New York City, Washington, D.C., Atlanta and Toronto. On Nov. 30, Duckwrth will launch the UK and European leg of his tour, playing in cities such as London, Amsterdam and Paris.
Duckwrth’s upcoming tour will follow his appearance on Billie Eilish’s Happier Than Ever, The World Tour.
As for Syd, she co-wrote and co-produced “Plastic Off the Sofa” from Beyoncé’s irresistible new album, Renaissance. In April, she released her sophomore album, Broken Hearts Club, and went on a supporting tour that concluded in late spring.
