T.I. is back with “Love This Life”, the lead single from his long-waited eighth album Trouble Man. Featuring a tandem beat of romantic piano and bangin’ drums, the track sees the Grand Hustle head play the part of a gentleman (“You can get another guy to beat that p***y for ya/Them busters cowards, though, and I’ll take a bullet for ya”), offering up his most poppy and accessible persona to date. Stream it below (via Rap-Up.com).
Speaking to XXL recently, Tip said the song is “speaking to women, but from a man’s perspective. People who find themselves in a situation where the woman might say she wants to part ways with the man, but the man [is] like, ‘Let’s be sensible about this. You gonna leave all this? And go where?’”
Trouble Man is due later this year via Grand Hustle/Atlantic. It will reportedly feature cameos from Pharrell, Rico Love, Trey Songz, Usher, and more.
