Congratulations | Mac Miller


Zach West

As the intro-track to Mac Miller’s fourth major album, “Congratulations” sets both the thematic and musical tone for The Divine Feminine.

The song begins with the whispered vocals and angelic humming of Ariana Grande — Mac’s current love interest and muse. With the gradual addition of a sweet piano melody and chill-inducing strings, the track progresses with Miller rapping about love, sex, and meaning in his relationship.

Vocals, performed by Bilal and accompanied by lush instrumentation, close the track and readies you for the journey into Mac’s heart and the rest of the album.
