Belly Teams Up with The Weeknd, Young Thug on ‘Better Believe’
Written by on July 22, 2021
Belly reunites with The Weeknd and Young Thug on his latest single, “Better Believe.”
The Zaytoven-produced track, which Belly calls the “biggest record of the summer,” finds Belly and Thug setting the vibe, while Abel delivers a hypnotic hook.
“It’s a family affair. That’s my brothers right there,” Belly told Apple Music of working with Abel and Thug. “I feel like the best collaborations happen with people that you actually have chemistry with in real life and really with in real life. And I think with Thug and Abel, obviously, it’s just natural. If something sounds forced or like, it feels like it’s going down that road, I just kind of cut it off…but I’ve been blessed enough to work with guys that I got real good chemistry with. And we always showed that on every record.”
The song debuts alongside an explosive video, directed by Christian Breslauer (Doja Cat, Nick Jonas). The cinematic clip, which Belly describes as a stunning “mind f**k,” is the first in a two-part series.
“Better Believe” arrives ahead of Belly’s upcoming album See You Next Wednesday, due this summer. The project has already spawned a series of tracks including “Money on the Table” with Benny The Butcher, “IYKYK,” and “Zero Love.”
“I think just where I am mentally, where I am like spiritually, emotionally, I think I’m just in a much better place,” Belly said of his new music. “So putting this album together, for me, it feels like a celebration of like a landmark in my life because this right here, I didn’t think I was going to be able to do this again and put out music again and share my music again. So to be able to do this right now, for me, it was like a super blessing.”
