https://soundcloud.com/jay-cardiac-chris/jaychris-x-lyquin-waiting-on-you

DJ Drama‘s rap protege LyQuin, and artist-songwriter-producer JayChris team up for a massive hit song entitled “Waiting On You.” The two DMV MC’s express their thoughts on waiting on their potential love interests but things seem to be on hold due to trust issues, prior relationship problems, communication and more, as their ready to take the next step and settle down with the right one.

The lyrics of song says:

…Girl, I’m trying to take the right path and show you that it’s real
And give you everything you need so you know the deal
Girl I’m not perfect, I just make it worth it, you deserve it
All them b*tches be flirtin, cuz they see that I’m worth it
Girl, I been working, that’s one thing for certain, we both know the purpose
You one of a kind, girl let me just make you mine…

I said a ni**a stuck in his ways
Then you say I got too many h**s
If we keep worrying about all of them
Where we gon’ get we won’t ever know
Whenever you ready I’m waitin’ on you…

Check out the track above.

Radio host and entertainment personality, Angela Yee, served as the social media correspondent providing live updates on each of the performance sets. Reality TV star, Toya Wright was present in addition to Atlanta-area DJ, Traci Steele also came out to show support to the aspiring finalists, alongside longtime record producer and reality TV star, Stevie J.

“Winning this year’s McDonald’s Flavor Battle competition is a huge accomplishment for me,” said DJ Orange Calderon. “Honestly, all of the DJs were great, and I’m extremely humbled to even be considered for the opportunity.”

In its sixth year, the competition brought out some of the biggest up-and-coming DJs in the industry with 12 DJs vying for the chance to win the grand prize. Over the course of four weeks, three DJs – one from the West Coast, East Coast and South – won over the stylistic preferences of online voters and fans with creative mixes that helped them advance through three rounds of voting on flavorbattle.com. The final three were active on social media encouraging their fans and followers to participate in the voting process using the hashtag “#365FlavorBattle.” Spinning on the 1s and 2s, the finalists competed live in Atlanta, putting forth their best amped flavor for the crowd and judges who would determine their fate as Flavor Battle champion.

“The excitement surrounding the 2016 McDonald’s Flavor Battle competition was solid and engaging,” said Adam Salgado, McDonald’s U.S. Marketing Vice President. “McDonald’s is an organization is proud to celebrate the diversity of its customers and one way to do that is through music. The excitement around the 2016 Flavor Battle demonstrates the impact of hip hop within our customer base and McDonald’s is proud to offer Flavor Battle as a platform for rising DJs to showcase their skills on a national stage.”
