DeJ Loaf drops off a new song today, “Changes.” DeJ Loaf is going through changes. The Detroit rapper’s new single is a left turn from the melancholic music that put her on. Replacing the dreamy production and wailing melodies of her early material are Just Blaze-esque horns and basslines, ascendant hooks and defiant raps. The track follows DeJ’s single “No Fear,” which had a similarly uplifting sound, but was more 2017 Calvin Harris than 2003 HOT 97 — the era “Changes” nods towards.
Earlier this year, DeJ Loaf released Fuck a Friend Zone, a collaborative mixtape with R&B singer Jacquees. She released All Jokes Aside in 2016, which included no features and a lot of production with DDS, who she has been working with since she broke through with “Try Me” in 2014. On the song, she rhymes about her never ending hustle and going through the necessary changes in her life. “Old friends will turn into strangers, ex lovers mad that I’m famous, they see the picture I’m painting,” croons DeJ over the banging beat. Stream the song via Apple Music above.
