Action Bronson, Chance the Rapper, Mark Ronson Unite on "Baby Blue"

Mr. WonderfulAction Bronson's sophomore label album, is right around the corner. So far we've heard "Easy Rider," "Actin Crazy" and "Terry," and all signs point to the record being a hip hop standout for the year.

The latest taste from the F*ck, That's Delicious host is "Baby Blue," a peppy piano cut produced by Mark Ronson (peep those "Uptown Funk"–adjacent horns on the outro). Chance the Rapper's here to spill silly venom like "I hope every soda you drink already shaken up" and "I hope the zipper on your jacket get stuck" and the unforgivable "I hope there's always snow in your driveway." 

Meanwhile, the Queens-bred Bronson—born Arian Asllani—spits confident bars like: "I'm not exactly flawless, but I'm gorgeous just like a horse is / I know the thought of me succeeding makes a lot of people nauseous / Still I'm on the back of the boat taking pictures with the swordfish." It's really and truly a blast.

Mr. Wonderful is due March 24. Back in May 2014, Action Bronson described the record to NME, saying:

"The whole album is a standout. I don't care about individual songs, I'm trying to make a complete, classic project. I just do my music uninfluenced by anybody else, or current trends, and it comes together at the end. Nothing needs to have a f*cking theme all the time. This is just rap. I'm not trying to make people think I'm some sort of scientific wizard or inspirational poet. F*ck that! It's just happy, funny, rugged, rough rap."
