Trippie Redd Drops New Single “Holy Smokes” with Lil Uzi Vert
A few days ago rapper Trippie Redd dropped a new collaboration called “Holy Smokes” off of his upcoming album “Trip at Knight”, and it’s been trending on YouTube ever since! “Trip at Knight” is set to be released sometime before the end of August. Trippie Redd has been teasing the album for the past couple of months and building excitement among his rapidly growing fanbase. The first single he released for it called “Miss The Rage” peaked at #4 on the Billboard Global 200 and spent two weeks on the charts as it spread across social media. Now that he’s released the second single, we’re here to give you the scoop on it! Follow along for our review.
The production on Trippie Redd’s music is always interesting to listen to. We’d best describe the R&B beats as futuristic, and exuding the feeling of being in another dimension. “Holy Smokes” is no different. The beats feel refreshing and different and there is just enough going on without it feeling too chaotic. Lyrically, the song explores similar themes to his past work, specifically zooming in on wealth and relationships. The lead line “holy f*ckin’ smokes, I got my money up” sums up the parts of the song discussing money and the other contrasting lead line “sad thing is money still won’t buy love” pretty much sums up what he is saying about relationships. With his gain of wealth he is satisfied, but not content.
It’s Lil Uzi Vert!
Lil Uzi Vert hops on the track for the second verse. Trippie Redd had made an Instagram post back in May asking fans who they would want featured on the track. Fans overwhelmingly voted for Lil Uzi Vert to feature, a rapper well known for his craft in the industry. Although this was his first collaboration with Trippie Redd, it received a great reaction. Their quite different voices created an interesting contrast. The second verse encapsulates the vibe of Lil Uzi Vert and his music well, while still fitting the energy and themes Trippie Redd explores in this track!
Overall, Holy Smokes was a great listen and we’d recommend it especially if you’re into rap/hip-hop music, or a fan of Trippie Redd or Lil Uzi Vert. If you’re looking for some new music it’s definitely worth a listen, you may be pleasantly surprised! If you enjoyed this review and want to read more music reviews, be sure to check out our page!
