Trap music staple RL Grime took the hype for his forthcoming Nova album to a new level this week with an announcement that the album has been completed and the surprise release of brand new song with Daya called “I Wanna Know”. RL Grime has been relatively quiet on the release front since he dropped three impressive singles off Nova last fall but he spent the winter giving fans a taste of his amazing unreleased music like this gritty ID from his live set at Something Wicked.
“I Wanna Know” is another glimpse into the new sound that RL is exploring on what is shaping up to be an incredibly diverse album. The production remains low-key for much of the first verse, leaving plenty of room for Daya’s vibrant vocals before the buildup introduces a smooth, rumbling bass that adds to the track’s energy. As drums and chords layer to drive the track forward an electric guitar riff creeps up from the background and seizes the listener’s attention in an explosion of colorful energy.
RL Grime and Daya also co-directed a dynamic lyric video to accompany the song. It’s filled with easter eggs from the artist’s private lives and public performances and fosters an energetic, youthful vibe. Be sure to check it out below. Enjoy!
