After an extensive amount of promotional work and single releases such as "Drifting" ft. Tory Lanez and Chris Brown, G-Eazy has finally dropped off his sophomore album. When It’s Dark Out is a 17 track journey of an album that’s sure to reach the top of the charts across the globe. The album has G straying away from the light-hearted, braggadocio filled style we saw on These Things Happen and displays a far darker, more serious side.
By far and away, G-Eazy’s most haunting song is “Everything Will Be OK” ft. Kehlani. In fact, while making his rounds throwing private listening parties across the country, G-Eazy mentioned in Denver that “Everything Will Be OK” is the most important song he’s ever recorded. Upon listening it’s quickly understood why. On it G discusses traumatic events such as dealing with his mom’s sexuality and the tragic passing of his mom’s girlfriend- leaving goose bumps on your skin.
From beginning to end, When It's Dark Out is a cohesive project that reveals just how far G-Eazy has come. Exhibiting his far more mature sound and distinguished content, G-Eazy manages to not only dodge the infamous sophomore slump, but create his best album to date.
