ILLYZILLA also nail it when experimenting with R&B on “Queens,” a heartwarming ode to iLLBLISS’s wife featuring unique vocal appearances from singer Uzezi and emcee Phlow. They provide the female side of the relationship perspective and do so with honesty and emotion, bringing depth to the track. The warmth of “Queens” extends to “DON” as well, though this Phlow-assisted cut is less romantic and more an anthem for those who pave their own paths in this life. Still, the soulful touches from Teck help to balance iLLBLISS’s assertive vocals and Phlow’s presence on the hook.
It’s that same sense of balance that makes ILLYZILLA successful as a complete project. Everyone on here is bringing their best to the table without stepping on each other, and it provides a feeling of harmony that makes the EP such an addictive listen.
