It’s been fun to watch Marshmello’s rise as a producer result in more credibility within the hip hop community, opening the door to work with higher-profile artists. There’s yet to be a perfect combination between Marshmello’s joyful trap sound and a rapper (or rappers), but it’s clearly a work in progress.
“Danger” — Mello’s collab with Migos — is another step in the right direction. This song is apparently on the soundtrack of an upcoming Netflix movie called Bright, which is how you’d normally describe a Marshmello song.
Not here, though. Marshmello seems intent to provide a fertile playground for the Migos trio to do their thing, making it sound much more like a Migos song than a Marshmello song.
But that’s fine. “Danger” is good enough to please rap fans while also checking the Trap box for those who like that style of dance music.
