The track marks the hip-hop boyband’s first since delivering one of 2018’s best records, and it’s sounds like they’re taking a stab at repeat accolades this year. “I Been Born Again” begins with a harsh whisper before a throwback beat slides in under Kevin Abstract’s opening verse. As the mic gets passed to Merlyn Wood, then Dom McLennon, and finally a heavily modulated Joba, the minimalist structure builds and warps to become something slightly sinister.
