Despite her absence from the TIDAL announcement last month, Smith’s collaboration isn’t hugely surprising. Jay signed her to Roc Nation back in the days of “Whip My Hair.” She had slowed down her output since then, but the 14-year-old is still very much in love with creating music.
On “F Q-C#7” Smith shares stronger, somewhat raspy vocal, juxtaposed with music and lyrics that offer equal mixes of bounce and blithe.
A paid subscription (or a 30-day free-trial) is required to get a full listen. For the non-subscribers, TIDAL offers a 30-second snippet of “F Q-C #7.”
