Russ takes a right turn on his loose latest single, “Lucky,” moving away from the gloomy sounds of his earlier efforts this year like “Bankrupt,” “Private” and “Status,” and even deviating from more swaggering fare like “Moche” and “Petite conversation”. Instead, he chooses a dancing, rhythmic instrument with a four-floor rhythm to sing the praises of his last lover. He leads the way by humming how lucky he is, before switching to a fast rap pace suggesting all the thrills he has planned for his romantic partner.
Commenting on the track’s YouTube feed, Russ thanked fans for supporting him, even on left-wing departures like “Lucky”. “Thanks to all of you really! ” he wrote. “I just like doing what I’m feeling right now … it’s therapeutic for me so for all of you getting something out of music means a lot too.”
The New Jersey rapper-singer’s near constant flow of new music is one of the reasons he called his career “pandemic-proof” last year as he continued to advocate for the property of the artists. Of course, it probably helps that besides his music, he has several other sources of income, including his recently released cannabis strain, which he called “the best studio weed.”
