In speaking with HNHH, Big Boi revealed that the album was in its final stages, and that the record’s lead single “The Big Sleep Is Over” would lead the way to its release. Three months later, and The Big Sleepover has still yet to arrive. But today, we were blessed with a second single from the project, titled “Animalz.”
With vivid imagery and sometimes-NSFW lyrics, “Animalz” is Big Boi and Sleepy Brown tapping into the most primal emotions and spilling them all over a funky instrumental. A laid-back track that finds Big Boi recounting his introduction to the world of romance, “Animalz” is a sampler of the ingenuity and flair the two are bringing for The Big Sleepover, an album they say shows the full-scale of the iconic collaborative energy between the two hip-hop giants.
