I knew it was going to be a late night when RL Grime announced yesterday that he’d be releasing a brand new (and free) track at midnight. Entitled “Because Of U”, this song was worth staying up for. The trap king’s release is reminiscent of breakup sex: bittersweet, but definitely hot. “Because Of U” might be a saccharine break-up song or a passionate make-up song – either way, it’s been on repeat since one in the morning.
Wedidit takes the reigns on the release this time around instead of Fools Gold, and I won’t lie, the track matches the overall sound of Wedidit’s roster. This new one may be a bit different because RL Grime is more often known for bangers of the “Love Sosa“ variety. “Because Of U”, while undeniably RL Grime, demonstrates the producer’s ability to be sweet as well as dirty and emotional. “Because Of U” is the producer’s first release following his High Beams EP and an impressive stretch of festival headlining performances. This new trap-sterpiece is further justification for RL Grime’s residency in the genre’s place of honor – and he wants you to know that it’s all because of you.
