@realnue Releases “Feel It Now”

Published

on

Toronto-based rapper Nue releases the first single “Feel It Now” from his forthcoming full length album Playground due in early 2022 on Wax Records and Republic Records (UMG Worldwide). The angsty and lilting love song was inspired by alt-rock legends the Pixies “Where Is My Mind?”. He told producer Nellz he always wanted to sample the 80s’ song (which is in the final scene of 1999’s Fight Club), then he spit the lyrics over the final track. The song was completed in just 45 minutes, but that’s just the kind of prolific rap skills Nue possesses. “It was the fastest song I’ve ever done,” says the Scarborough-bred rapper of Jamaican descent who loves anime, weed and tequila. “It’s crazy because when I went to the studio, we were stumped for ideas. The producer asked me if there was anything specific that I wanted, and I always had this one song in my head that I wanted to sample, then we sampled it, and it wasn’t looping right, so we had to replay it and it was perfect.  I freestyled pretty much the whole song.”

For those somewhat familiar with the current world-beating dark, emotional “Toronto sound”, Nue is not new to this. In fact, Nue’s highly touted genre-bending approach to hip-hop and alternative R&B was first heard in 2017 with his critically-acclaimed mixtape Iroquois and then again with his 2018 project, u met me at a strange time, which led to a tour with Fetty Wap, a remix collaboration with Pressa, landing placements on the Call of Duty video game series, ghostwriting for major artists, and even setting precedents, once becoming the first and only Canadian artist to sign with 300 Entertainment (Migos, Young Thug). And with most every Nue release, the accolades poured in. After comfortably landing on XXL’s “15 New Artists You Should Know”, Complex / Pigeon and Planes’ “13 Rising Artists You Should Know”, CBC’s “Meet the New Faces of Canadian hip hop” lists, and with Paper Mag dubbing him “the Toronto rapper to keep your radar on”, it became quite obvious that he was bringing a considerably Nue energy to the hip hop game.Fast forward to today, and you can hear Nue’s sky high musical integrity shine bright like a diamond on “Feel it Now”, with its catchy hook, potent lyrics, and thick melodies, mixed in with guitars and gauzy trap beats. Nue is that Toronto rapper who brings the perfect blend of underground sensibilities with global accessibility.

Published

Still riding “High” off his recent collaboration with Dylan Chambers and ‘Best Melodic Rap Performance’ GRAMMY win for Lil Durk’s “All My Life” featuring J. Cole earlier this year, Miami musician LunchMoney Lewis delivers “Rain or Shine.” Co-produced by JulianBeatz & BRIANXWHITE, “Rain or Shine” is a record about believing things will get better even when everything feels hopeless. In current times where there is so much pain in the world, Lewis wrote the Hip-Hop / R&B-influenced track to help us overcome life’s hurdles with love.

“In light of everything going on in the world, I’ve been in a very tough place creatively about what I wanna write about. Seeing so many innocent lives taken pushed me to make something that gives people hope in some fashion, rain or shine. We will continue to push love and love only, even in the face of darkness,” states the talented triple threat about the inspiration behind his latest leak.

Best known for his work with Dr. Luke as a producer, LunchMoney Lewis first broke into wide recognition as a rapper after appearing on the song “Trini Dem Girls” from Nicki Minaj’s 2014 album ‘The Pinkprint.’ He also co-wrote Jessie J’s single “Burnin’ Up” from her album ‘Sweet Talker,’ and Fifth Harmony’s single “Bo$$” from the album ‘Reflection.’ In 2015, he released his debut single as a solo artist, “Bills”, which peaked at 79 on the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at number one on the ARIA Charts.
