“Just in time for New Years,” said Wiz in a post on Instagram upon releasing the track. “Enjoy your festivities drink responsibly and tag me when you use this sound in your video the day after #neverdrinkingagain.”
On the new track, the rapper recounts the night before to figure out where his will power clocked out for the evening. “Lotta women, no liquor/I don’t really want my head spinning/I know where to start, know the beginning,” he raps, retracing his steps through a hazy hangover. “It be like two shots then I’m loaded/Then them two shots turn to 40/Then I wake up in the morning like/How did I slip up?/When I said I wasn’t drinking again.”
The cover art for the single also perfectly encapsulates that feeling of overindulging during the holiday period, with Wiz slumped over Christmas presents and looking a little worse for wear.
“Never Drinking Again”follows his seventh studio album, “Multiverse,” which arrived in July and received a deluxe edition in October, via Taylor Gang Entertainment and Asylum Records.
