Another week, another dope cut from Russ for his fans to enjoy. This past weekend, the Atlanta-based talent liberated his latest single “When I’m With You,” a self-produced, acoustic number that sees him singing to his significant other:
“Don’t have to try too hard, don’t have to act, I can just be myself, take off the mask, you make me forget I’m a lonely man, basically, I’m sayin’ I like who I am, when I’m with you, yeah, when I’m with you, yeah, you feel like a sunset summer breeze, don’t have to take a shot for me to breathe, you make me forget I’m an anxious man, basically, I’m sayin’ I like who I am, when I’m with you…”
This year so far, Russ has released more than an album’s worst of songs across multiple genres, including “Italy,” “Fate,” “Misunderstood,” “Bankrupt,” “Small Talk,” “Status,” “3:15 (Can’t Breathe),” “Private” with Rexx Life Raj, “Money On Me,” “Lucky,” “Rather Be Myself,” “Satisfy,” “On The Way,” “Nothin’ I Won’t Do,” and “Cheers.” Outside of his own drops, Russ has also contributed to tracks like Jackboy’s “Own My Masters” and Blxst’s “Fck Boys.”
Last year, Russ’ released his more recent full-length body of work SHAKE THE SNOW GLOBE, which contains 14 tracks with additional appearances from Rick Ross, Kiana Ledé, Bugus, Benny The Butcher, Devin The Dude, and BIA. The project peaked within the top five of the Billboard 200 thanks to 63,000 first-week album equivalent units — following that, Russ then liberated a deluxe edition of SHAKE THE SNOW GLOBE with seven additional songs some months after. Even with that, he wasn’t done with 2020 — November saw the release of CHOMP, a five-track EP packed with contributions from Ab-Soul, DJ Premier, Busta Rhymes, Black Thought, and more.
