There’s plenty of new music to get into this Friday (May 19), including singles from Post Malone, Juice WRLD, and H.E.R., as well as a long-awaited R&B EP from Summer Walker. A few of our favorites have hopped on remixes with rising artists as well, such as Snoop Dogg’s work with Scar Lip on “This Is Cali,” and Future’s appearance on Toosii’s “Favorite Song.” In his usual fashion, the Atlanta native chiefly put a toxic twist on the popular track.
“These bitches too smart to compete with you / I’ma leave her right now if she mentions you,” Hendrix begins his verse. “Only f*ckin’ on her just to get to you / Only f*ckin’ on her ’cause we’re missin’ you,” he later assures his lover. For his part, Toosii sadly sings on the chorus, “I’m on the stage right now, singin’ your favorite song / Look in the crowd, and you’re nowhere to be found as they sing along.”
The original version of “Favorite Song” first landed back in February, and has since gone on to become a fan favorite within Toosii’s discography. It was produced by ADELSO and Tatiana Manaois (via a sample previously taken from 2022’s “You Might As Well”) and marks a continuation of the 23-year-old’s undeniably hot R&B streak with other singles like “Magic Potion,” Heartaches,” and “Love Is…”
Prior to releasing his latest hit, the New Yorker teased it on TikTok, at which time listeners immediately fell in love and demanded its release. They’ve since shown plenty of support, racking up over 66 million streams on DSPs. Check out Toosii and Future’s “Favorite Song (Toxic Version)” lyric video on YouTube above, or add it to your playlist on Spotify/Apple Music. Do you prefer the original or the Hendrix cut?

These bitches too smart to compete with you
I’ma leave her right now if she mention you
Only f*ckin’ on her just to get to you
Only f*ckin’ on her ’cause we’re missin’ you
