Rapper Travi$ Scott and R&B crooner Eric Bellinger join forces on Tommy Brown’s new song “Trippin’ On Me.” Brown is a Grammy-nominated songwriter-producer who has crafted tracks for Chris Brown, T.I., Ariana Grande and others. Now the Pittsburgh, Penn., native is ready to venture out on his own.
On the song, Brown, Scott and Bellinger rap about jealous girlfriends who always check their smartphones and question their whereabouts.
“She always reaching for my phone, but we ain’t married / She said she loved me for me, but she loved the carets / She done met all of my n—-s, now I’m embarrassed / Took her all around the world including trips to Paris,” raps Brown.
Scott tries to calm his girl’s jealousy by reassuring that after buying her all kinds of expensive clothes, there’s no way he could be cheating on her.
Finally, Bellinger questions his girlfriend’s motives behind her inquisitive ways. “What did I do to lose all of your trust? / Girl, why are you so damn insecure? / Why would I do anything to jeopardize our love? / Girl, why you are so paranoid,” he sings.
In a FADER interview, Brown said he wanted to work with Scott and Bellinger because he respected their steady grind. “Being around them both early in their career and knowing they were both artists starting from ground zero…I thought it would be cool to bring those two together and work on an idea that would mess people up,” he said.
