“Allo c’est qui?” is produced by 404 nfnd (SCH, Guirri Mafia, Joysad) and is one of Izzy-S’s most memorable earworms to date. The lively hook blends perfectly with the rapper’s descriptive verses, explaining the hardships he has lived through and the importance of keeping his head above water. Making it past his struggles, Izzy asserts that he’s “always gang” before highlighting the shiny new diamonds on his chain in the chorus.
Midway through the song, the beat switches and allows room for Izzy to try out new flows, sharing an anecdote about the police knocking on his door early in the morning, forcing him to scramble and make quick decisions to protect himself and his family. He continues by reflecting on his father’s legacy, celebrating the sacrifices he made for him and his siblings to lead a better life. “My father who sacrificed so much for us and who immigrated so we can have only the best,” he sings about his dad before re-introducing melodies from earlier in the song.
Izzy confidently says about the new song and himself: “The realest rapper in the city.”
The new single is accompanied by a music video shot in Montréal by Carlos Guerra. Izzy-S proudly sports a Haitian flag in several shots, keeping his culture close to his heart as he recites the song’s lyrics with his friends.
