The Alamo Records Signee Collabs with Frequent Producer Nvbeel for an Atmospheric and Melodic New Track
wifisfuneral changed his artistic direction this year, incorporating more melody to deliver his cerebral bars. Returning with his first new song since the August release of his album PAIN?, wifi shares “Back Track (Intro).” Connecting with frequent collaborator Nvbeel, who produced wifi’s fan-favorite “Peace Sign” ft. YBN Nahmir and fills the track with burbling keyboards and ringing hi-hats, wifi offers an array of auto-tuned witticisms: “In the choppa droppin’ bombs just like Baghdad, my shooters like Mad Max.” Released on SoundCloud, “Back Track” proves that wifi has much further to go with his new artistic style.
PAIN? marks a new chapter in the one-time XXL Freshman’s career, integrating auto-tune assisted melodies, giving his songs a tuneful lift. The album veers from romantic devotionals, to X-rated sex jams, to expressions of loneliness, wifi’s pitch-shifting voice expressing the deeply-felt emotion reflected in his lyrics. PAIN? is home to several well-received singles, including the Smoove’L-featuring “Ocean” and lo-fi pop gem “Lost In Time” ft. Coi Leray. Over the past few weeks, wifi showcased certain album highlights with live performance videos, including clips for ride-or-die lead single “End Of Story” and playalistic cautionary tale “Guy Like Me.” Praised by Stereogum, XXL, HotNewHipHop, Lyrical Lemonade, and more, PAIN? is available everywhere via Alamo Records.
