Mike Posner has made some big money over the course of his career with songs like “I Took A Pill In Ibiza” and “Cooler Than Me.” Both of those efforts blasted the singer to a new level but that’s not all that Mike Posner is. The artist prides himself on being just a regular guy from Detroit. One of the first things he says in his newest single “Noah’s Ark” is that he had a 3.5 GPA at Duke University. He wants people to know he’s more than just a hit song about taking drugs in Spain. With a new album on the way later this week, Posner decided to give his fans a quick introduction before the real thing.
“Noah’s Ark” tells a story about his life, comparing what’s he’s done to an instruction manual on how to “not be boring.” As always, the artist comes through with some entertaining lines that will stick with you. A Real Good Kid is coming out on January 18 and considering this is a warm-up for the full project, it feels like the upcoming work will be much more introspective than his past work. How do you feel about this one?
I had a 3.5 at Duke
And I was blowing up
3 albums, I got a row of ducks
When my dad was 22, dog he drove a truck
January in Detroit, it’s cold as fuck
You know it’s tough
But I came this far, I ain’t slowing up
