“Me vs. Myself’ fails to deliver after short delay

A Boogie wit da Hoodie falls off


Fair use from Genius

“Me vs. Myself” by A Boogie wit da Hoodie just dropped after a one year wait. After his last studio album, “B4 AVA,” this album keeps his same desires of the rap life helping him out and keeping him on track. With his other popular albums like “Hoodie Szn” and “Artist,” this was a real letdown compared to his previous albums. The songs on this album are okay with a run time of one hour and eight minutes.

“Me vs. Myself” is A Boogie wit da Hoodie’s 4th studio album. A Boogie wit da Hoodie’s album was originally supposed to be released in November but was delayed due to Drake and 21 Savage’s album because A Boogie wit da Hoodie wanted no competition on his debut. This album is now released on all streaming services with features from Roddy Rich, Tory Lanez, Kodak Black, G Herbo, Lil Durk, Don Q and H.E.R. 

One of the most popular songs to bring back, “Water (Drowning, Pt.2),” brings back some old vibes with one of his famous songs “Drowning.” This song is a little bit of a letdown compared to the old classic . This song talks about how he is the only one she needs, which he says multiple times in the song. 

“Take shots (feat. Tory Lanez)” reflects on letting go of women the artist admires. With the nice and smooth vocals from A Boogie wit da Hoodie transitioning to Tory Lanez spitting lyrics about his personal life and how he takes risks, this song works well with the beats. This song is good with the beats and lyrics hitting off each other for the final seconds, saying “take shots, take shots, shot after shot.”

The song “Emotions,” one of my favorites, talks about A Boogie wit da Hoodie not being able to open up with his emotions, but still wanting to be there for his number one’s. This song is good, with the melodies of A boogie wit da Hoodie speaking from the heart about trust and hiding feelings, with the lyrics “Emotions be hittin’ too strong.”

With mixes of rap and R&B, the song “24 hours” which is one of A Boogie wit da Hoodie’s biggest hits, talks about making love to the girls who are only on the low. A Boogie lyric “You loved me when I was bummy, now I got money, baby, let me freeze you,” speaks to how he misses her but he’s doing better now.

Overall, “Me vs. Myself” is a good piece of music, but doesnt meet people’s expectations and lacks standouts. It’s just bad how A Boogie delayed his album to have no competition when “Her Loss” by Drake and 21 Savage was far better than “Me vs. Myself.” It feels like A Boogie is falling off compared to his previous work like “Hoodie Szn,” where the tracks are really good and melodic, where on this album it feels generic and uninteresting. Hopefully, A Boogie can come back from this.


Highlights: “Take shots,” “Emotions,” “24 hours”

Lowlights: “Come Here,” “February,” “Regular”
