Russ keeps his routine going as he sticks to his consistent schedule of weekly drops. After providing plenty of cuts like “Bankrupt,” “Small Talk,” “Status,” “3:15 (Breathe),” “Private” with Rexx Life Raj, and “Money On Me,” the multi-talented artist drops off another one of his weekly singles today (July 16). On the new track “Cheers,” Russ takes a moment to appreciate how far he has come:
Girl been bad, money been good, mama been set, yeah/ Blow this cash like I should, hop on a jet, yeah, I love when it comes together/ I felt bad, now I feel better (yeah)/ My promised land is family passing marijuana plants
Pussy flow like water and the water taste like pomegranate/ The common man is what I came from, looked up to idols then became one, and now I’m celebrating with my day ones, we gon’ cheers to this (yeah), I ain’t gon’ lie, I waited years for this, shed tears for this
The new song is a follow up to his most recent drops “Satisfy” and “Rather Be Myself.” Back in 2020, Russ released his third studio LP SHAKE THE SNOW GLOBE, his last under the Columbia Records imprint. Including its deluxe upgrade, SHAKE THE SNOW GLOBE saw 21 tracks with features from Rick Ross, Bugus, Ty Dolla $ign, WESTSIDE BOOGIE, Kiana Ledé, Benny The Butcher, Devin The Dude, and Bia.
The project was a top five success, peaked at number four on the Billboard 200 with 63,000 album equivalent units sold during its first week. Later that year, Russ then liberated the five-track EP CHOMP — his first official project since his return to independence. That short project saw top quality collaborations with guest verses from Ab-Soul, DJ Premier, Black Thought, Busta Rhymes, and much more.
