4batz Has the Recipe on “act ii: date @ 8"

Preston Breck

Where did 4batz come from? The quick answer is Dallas, but the real answer is no one really knows. The alt-R&B singer first made waves earlier this fall with his first ever track “act i: stickerz ‘99’”. Going viral for his performance of the song on From the Block, 4batz’s smooth, pitched vocals has drawn comparisons to artists like Brent Faiyaz and others. Still, the singer has remained relatively mysterious to the world outside of doing numbers on TikTok and Instagram with snippets of his next track. After a few months, “act ii: date @ 8” is here, and it definitely doesn’t disappoint.

“act ii” takes the same moody, minimalist r&b as “act i” and adds an upbeat, more trap-based instrumental to it. 4batz’s calm, catchy vocals make a return, pitched down a bit and taking more of a front seat this time around. The song is groovy but sensual as 4batz plans out an expensive date, almost a continuation of the “I might just come see you today” story of “act i." Just like the last track, “act ii” ends with an abrupt, slowed down outro, leaving us all interested in what’s to come next. As the year comes to the close, 4batz should be at the top of everyone’s list of artists to watch in 2024. Let’s see where his story goes next with a potential act iii.
