Trina and Latto Team Up For a Wild New Tune Called ‘Clap’

In their new track ‘Clap,’ rappers Trina and Latto explain what it takes to impress them, with solid lyrics that border on the controversial. ‘Clap’ sees veteran rapper Trina take up-and-coming Latto under her wing, marking the artists’ second collaboration.

The single is reminiscent of classic ’90s hip-hop, with minimal melodies to focus on the duo’s risqué yet uplifting lyrics. The chorus of the song plays out: “Throw it in rotation, shawty bring that a** back, back, back, back / Clap, ayy, she gon’ shake that a** / She gon’ make that a** clap, clap“.

The track was released on 15th April and is the follow-up to Trina’s 2021 single ‘Receipts’. Trina’s latest studio album, ‘The One,’ was released in 2019. It’s unclear whether ‘Clap’ will appear on a larger body of work by the singer.

Trina’s sixth studio album, ‘The One,’ marked her comeback and first album since 2010’s ‘Amazin,’ and featured a collaboration with Nicki Minaj called ‘BAPS.’ Trina also included cameos from 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne, DJ Khaled, and others on the album.

Meanwhile, Latto’s most recent release was ‘777,’ her first after departing from her previous stage name, Mulatto, about a year ago.

‘777,’ which featured Kodak Black, Childish Gambino, 21 Savage, Lil Durk, and others, garnered a four-star review from NME’s Jordan Basset, who said “the overall mood is buoyant.”

“Here is proof, once again, that Latto could go toe-to-toe with the best of ‘em,” Basset continued.
