Taken from Eric Bellinger’s upcoming release Eric B. For President: Term 2, which drops March 10th. The singer-songwriter also explained the track to VIBE, who premiered the single:
‘Treat Yourself’ is easily one of my favorite joints on the project. I love all of the songs but this one is special to me because it’s the first time I’m actually being kind of braggadocios on a record. Over the years I’ve had some success and I tend to keep quiet about my personal life especially in the department of material things. I thought it was time to let people know what time it is.
Wale is someone I’ve been working super closely with lately. It was genuine, it was organic. When he heard the song he immediately hopped on. It’s always great working with Wale, I’m actually headed to the studio to work with him now for his new project. There’s never any effort put forth when we work, it’s crazy. Our chemistry alone could write a hit record. We’re both extremely passionate about the art and the culture. It’s rare to meet someone that actually cares about the music and the feeling behind it nowadays so when we linked we pretty much clicked instantly and it’s been magic ever since.
