Noname - "Rainforest"

Noname returns with another new track, her first of 2021.

While there is still no word on a new album from Noname, the rapper has shared her first new song since last summer's "Song 33" and it's another solid entry in her canon. Playful rhythms propel the track and her rhymes feel effortless, like she's just showing off raw talent and is capable of even more style. There is a tropical, acoustic guitar that escorts the number as it shuffles along with the perfect flow. But while the vibes suggest a subdued and relaxed affair, and even though she starts by proclaiming "I just wanna dance tonight," Noname's words are just as powerful and poignant as ever. While we wait patiently for a new record, this is a sensational holdover.
