Album Review: American Dream

Updated: Jun 2

21 Savage’s third studio album American dream takes his fans and listeners through his life and highly publicized origin story of being UK-born and immigration troubles he experienced in recent years. 21 Savage is coming off of a chart making year, with his collaboration work with Drake on the well-known album Her Loss and now following this year with American dream, 21 Savage is proving no plan of slowing down. 

The album hits off big with the first top tracks featuring hard trap beats which 21 Savage skillfully flows on, in addition to the several features mixed in. “redrum”, is one of these chart making tracks in which 21 Savage shows his murderous skills on a beat and catches listeners with the melodic chorus. He doesn’t fall short with his next featured track “n.h.i.e” with Doja Cat, which has already gained some social media attention with the comedic take Doja Cat adds into the song.  

Possibly for some a new sound was added into this album with the extensive features of several R&B infused tracks with features from Summer Walker, Mariah the Scientist, Brent Faiyaz and Burna Boy. 21 Savage was able to give some appreciation to a few 90s R&B samples while maintaining a trap feel with the help from his long-standing music partner Metro Boomin. 

21 Savage, overall, on American dream in 15 tracks, was able to again show off his skills with his heart-to-heart message for fans and youth with “letter to my brudda” and “dark days”. He showed appreciation for R&B with a few lust-infused love songs for all audiences, and as always, provided long-standing party tracks with catchy choruses with a high level of lyricism.
