This song was released May 7. So, why have I not heard it? Classic NWA, Express Yourself was a single on Straight Outta Compton back in the 80's when Hip Hop was at its finest. It was the best time for rap because heavy horns, simple drum kits, and poetic rhymes were everywhere, along with throwback samples like this one that everyone has a spot in their heart for. Labrinth has used his unique vocals, swingy and full of raspy raw emotion, to bring back the positivity. He tweaked the horns and added an electronic backing track that gives us a happy new twist to an old favorite.
