The back half of last year was uncomfortable for the Migos. Quavo and Takeoff seemed to sleepwalk through their so-so solo records, both of which were picked apart and then quickly forgotten, while Offset got stuck in the tabloid mire and put his own project on hold. It's a relief, then, to hear the trio back together on Mustard's new single, "Pure Water," bouncing off of each other's ad-libs, all sounding supple over a wailing, minimal beat. It's technically Mustard's song, but hopefully it's a sign of things to come on Culture III, due out some time in the next couple months. Migos always better when they're exploring outside of their comfort zones, and – in case anyone forgot – they really thrive when they're working together. Listen to "Pure Water" below.
