Viz KhalifaNewest The single “#NeverDrinkingAgain” is the last-minute entry on his 2022 release list before heading into the new year.
On the new track, the rapper recounts the night before to figure out where his willpower ran out during the night. “Lotta women, no liquor/I don’t really want my head spinning/I know where to start, know the beginning,” he raps, retracing his steps in a hazy hangover. “It’s like two shots, and then I refill it/Then they two shots turn it into 40/And then I wake up in the morning like/How did I slip?/When I say I don’t drink anymore.”
