    Vince Staples, 6LACK and Mereba have come together for a tender ballad titled “Yo Love.” It appears on the soundtrack for the forthcoming film, Queen & Slim.

    Staples kicks off the track with a rhythmic verse where he tries to get to know his lover more. “I been beaten black and blue / Story of my life, tell me something about you / Where you from? Did you stay or did you run? / You ever thought about a daughter or a son?” he raps.

    Meanwhile, 6LACK and Mereba deliver silky harmonies on the chorus. “I’d do life for your love / I would probably swing a knife for your love / Go against everything right for your love / And I would probably man down them if they ever tried to stifle your love / Cross the line, I just might for your love,” they sing over jazzy electric guitar and a groovy bassline.

    “Yo Love” is the latest addition to the soundtrack of Queen & Slim, following “Ride or Die” by Megan Thee Stallion and Vickeelo, and “Collide” by Tiana Major and EarthGang. The OST arrives this Friday, while the movie hits cinemas on November 22.
