Aside from his usual dance music tracks, Marshmello has a strong record of crossover hits in the realms of hip hop and pop, too. In the past, Marshmello has collaborated with Bastille, Selena Gomez, Migos, Juicy J, Amr Diab and more. Now, as his final track of 2018 (unless there’s another surprise waiting), he’s dropped a new tune with Roddy Ricch, “Project Dreams.”
If you’re not already a fan of hip hop, this track likely won’t be the one that turns you. It’s a slow and simple beat with auto-tuned vocals; some embellishments in the synth melody and the snap of the drums clue you into the fact that maybe it’s a Marshmello track, but aside from that, it’s your standard hip hop beat.
“Project Dreams” never strays or changes from the initial beat, so if that’s all you’re interested in, it gets boring pretty quickly. And with the auto-tune, Roddy Ricch may as well be any other rapper, his voice indistinguishable from any other aspiring rapper with a decent microphone and some software.
If nothing else, we just hope that the music video features Radon Randell.
