DJ Holiday Taps Wiz Khalifa, O.T. Genasis For Single “No Stress” – DJ Holiday has returned with a new single, “No Stress,” featuring Wiz Khalifa and O.T. Genasis. In recent years, Holiday has had his hands on an impressive string of hits. In 2014, he released “Miley”, featuring Waka Flocka and Wiz. Then, in 2017, he teamed up with 2 Chainz for “Wassup Wid It.” He followed that up in 2018 with the track, “2 Seater,” which featured Quavo and 21 Savage. Now, Holiday is back with another banger just in time for summer.
“No Stress” is produced by YS On The Track. In a press release, DJ Holiday spoke about the New Jersey-based producer’s work. “I listened to that beat for weeks, but didn’t know what to do with it!” he revealed. “The flute on it had me mesmerized, just didn’t know who to give it to.” As Holiday himself says, YS On The Track employs an infectious flute melody in the background of the instrumental. Furthermore, the descending earworm from the wind instrument is flanked by all of the production one would expect from a modern rap track. 808s boom and hi-hat triplets blaze over the top of the melody, providing a hard-hitting background for Wiz and Genasis to flow over.
“No Stress” is a banger about not sweating the small stuff and enjoying life. The song starts with some pretty intense coughing by someone who clearly just took a pretty big hit. That sound sets the mood for the track, which can only be described as “unbothered.” As such, both Wiz and Genasis rap about not letting anything get to them as long as they’re getting their bag. “Holiday told me to turn up / it’s no clip for the burner / these n**gas want me mad / run and just got me a bag,” Genasis raps over the undulating beat. When Wiz comes in, his verse echoes the same sentiment: “I don’t stress / I got a check / I’m so blessed / I gotta flex.”
In the press release, DJ Holiday also spoke about how he decided who to put on the song. “O.T. has always been one of my favorites, and I always told him we was gon’ get one in every time he came to Atlanta,” Holiday said. “So I sent him the beat, he destroyed the hook and I thought it was instant heat… Only thing missing was my Pittsburgh big dog, Wiz Khalifa!” What do you think of the new track?
