Bree Runway Is Too Hot To Handle on “HOT HOT”
The Busta Rhymes–sampling single follows last year’s 2000AND4EVA.
I am predicting, right now, that Bree Runway is going to take over the charts—it’s going to seem like the London singer/rapper came out of nowhere, but really you just weren’t paying attention. In the past year she’s teamed up with Maliibu Mitch, Yung Baby Tate, and the Queen Missy Elliott. She’s bull rode a giant Nokia phone, made all the men—I mean, ATMs—go crazy, and now she’s burning up the local carwash.
Her latest single “HOT HOT” samples the bass-heavy beat from Busta Rhyme’s 2005 hit “Touch It” as she struts her stuff. “You think you hot hot / You ain’t got it like me / Don’t lie, baby, tell the truth,” she sings during the chorus, her vocals maneuvering around staccato drumbeats.
In a comment about her new single, Runway envisioned this as a 2021 anthem. “I feel like this is the song everyone needs to hear as it gets hotter and the world eases up,” she shared. “This pandemic hasn’t been easy on the brain, and with being indoors wearing joggers 24/7, it’s been hard to feel like a hottie, so I’m hoping this track will help! Typically for me, it’s about reaffirming your power and believing in yourself cause ‘you can never do it like a Brenda.; I want my fans to never feel afraid to hype themselves up, they’re the shit and they don’t need to wait for anybody to tell’em they are!”
