This past weekend, fans were able to check out Juice WRLD‘s second posthumous release Fighting Demons, which contains 18 tracks and additional assists from Justin Bieber, Polo G, Trippie Redd, SUGA, and BTS. In addition to the new album, Juice WRLD‘s team also unveiled a matching visual for the standout cut “Burn,” a Metro Boomin and Rex Kudo-produced number that sees the late talent harmonizing about his vices and bad habits, among other things:
“I can’t take one Percocet, start tonight off, I just took a 60, Burberry on me, shoot you in your back, you just got Pretty Ricky, I tie the Chanel runners, then I get back to running the city, and I know that it’s hell coming, I ain’t worried, my niggas, they with me, gotta put the narcotics down, I can feel ’em fucking up my kidney, and punching my liver, if I let it kill me, my mama’ll never forgive me, ain’t numbing my feelings, if I let it kill ’em, my baby will never forgive me…”
Courtesy of Steve Cannon and Grade A Films comes a clip that shows footage of Juice WRLD performing the track in the studio. Meanwhile, that’s interspersed with people trying to escape what looks like an apocalypse — complete with astroids bringing down skyscrapers, volcanos drowning civilization in lava, and Earth imploding at the video’s end.
Fighting Demons follows last year’s Legends Never Die, the first official offering since Juice WRLD tragically passed on in December of 2019. That project saw 22 songs and contributions from The Weeknd, Marshmello, The Kid LAROI, Halsey, and more. As expected, Legends Never Die skyrocketed to number one on the Billboard 200 thanks to 497,000 album equivalent units sold the first week of its release — the album also also since scored a double Platinum certification in the US.
