After announcing the release date for his album, Cuffing Season, Eric Bellinger drops a new single from the project and it’s a bonafide babymaker. iPod On Shuffle takes a couple of lyrical cues from Silk (Meeting In My Bedroom, Freaky), the crooner talks about the preparations he’s making for a night of loving, including the fact that he has all the bedroom jams ready on his iPod. The production by Ayo has a lot of energy despite it being mid-tempo. Bellinger’s vocals add the rest of the energy as his tone is engaging and you can tell that he means every word he is saying. While we would like him to find another delivery style (the cadence of the vocals is similar to several songs on Choose Up Season), we haven’t grown tired of it yet and it works well on this track.
Cuffing Season will be available for purchase July 7.
