Eric Bellinger helps us welcome fall with a new soundtrack for the pending cuffin season! The Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter returns with his anticipated new mixtape Choose Up Season, explaining the harsh reality of the wild single life in Los Angeles.
The 9-track project includes features from The Game, Teeflii, Pleasure P, and Teyana Taylor, with production from K. Roosevelt, Da Internz and more.
Eric explains the mixtape song titles and theme: “The single life in LA is wild. And the ‘CHOOSE UP’ can get very real. After you choose up, it’s time to leave the club and get your car from ‘VALET’ before continuing the turn up with a ‘HOUSE PARTY’ at the crib. If things go right, you know she’ll pulling out the ‘NIGHT BAG’ and talking to ‘THE PILLOW’ while the two of you become ‘NIGHT OWLS.’ However, it’s usually agreed upon in the beginning that the two of you will ‘NEVER BE TOGETHER’ and that things are just ‘CASUAL’ until one of them catches feeling and things instantly get ‘AWKWARD.’
Choose Up Season serves as an official precursor to Bellinger’s upcoming major-label album debut Cuffing Season, due out in early 2015.
