Kid Cudi Goes Through The Motions On “Tequila Shots”

Kid Cudi locks in with Dot Da Genius and Take A Daytrip for “Tequila Shots.”

In a year that’s been filled with pushback and rumors of albums dropping that never have, we’ve been blessed to close out a shitshow of a year with a new album from Kid Cudi. The third installment to the Man On The Moon doesn’t disappoint, either. In the decade-plus since releasing Man On The Moon: The End Of Day, Cudder’s explored other creative avenues, even within music, but his latest project finds him honing in on a sound that made fans fall in love with his music in the first place.

“Tequila Shots,” the first actual song on the project following a 37-second intro, brings Cudi’s long-time collaborator Dot Da Genius into the fold alongside Take A Daytrip for an exhilarating and psychedelic blast-off. It’s a thrilling starting point to the journey that is Man On The Moon III.
