Swiftly following up after his “Paid Off” single drop, Russ is back with his newest track “Sorry.” Over the !llmind and Sucuki-produced beat, Russ self-reflects and offers up his apologies to a woman he did wrong:
“I got you feelin’ stupid, broken and confused with where the situation’s movin’. I apologize, I blew it, but I’m still hopeful ‘cause that’s all I got. I say I’m here to show you that you all I want, that’s all you want. I hurt your feelings though, I hate that I didn’t count them. I hate that other women gonna think this song’s about them. I hate I added pressure to your shoulder blades.”
Russ gifted fans with a visually stunning music video for his new single “Take You Back” featuring Kehlani last month. His project Shake The Snow Globe was released back in January and earned him a top five spot on the Billboard 200 with 63,000 album equivalent units sold, and he followed up with its deluxe version later on. Prior to that, he dropped Zoo, which was led by the well-received singles “The Flute Song” and “Missin You Crazy.”
In an interview from earlier this year, Russ spoke about why it’s important for him to always give back and to amplify POC voices and grassroots organizations, and urges other white creators to do the same:
“I benefit off of Black culture on the daily. To not give back to the same culture that’s provided me a life and a living, is the definition of thievery, vulture, robbing. If you’re a white artist who’s benefited off of Black culture financially, you need to put money back into Black culture. Your screenshot with your feelings typed on them is not enough. F–k off. Put some money down. We don’t care that “I recognize my privilege and I’ma do better, praying for y’all.” What the f–k is that?”
