Chrome Hearts is the third single to be lifted off D-Block Europe’s Home Alone 2 mixtape. Featuring Offset, it’s the perfect collision of UK and US rap.
UK rap duo D-Block Europe continue their ascent with the Home Alone 2 mixtape. Arriving ahead of an arena tour, it’s spawned three singles so far, including the freshly-released Chrome Hearts.
It’s a perfect storm of UK and US rap flavours, with the flows of Young Adz and Dirtbike LB meshing with the signature drawl of Offset.
Chrome Hearts marks a departure from the more colourful and melodic flavour of No Competition, which is making its own waves on the UK Singles charts.
The new single has a darker, more atmospheric tone, with minor-key guitar arpeggios chiselling out the rhythm and an ominous sub-drone growling at the foundation of the mix.
Chrome Hearts pays tribute to trap fundamentals, but is infused with the unique flows and storytelling ability of DBE and Offset — who has recently landed collabs Cardi B, Kodak Black, and Tyga among others. The in-the-pocket groove of the track is effortless, with vocal phrases slotting in with the 808s — no doubt it’ll be a crowd favourite when DBE hit the road.
Chrome Hearts is out now via Virgin. Check out the visualiser below.
