Another Friday means Russ fans get another new track. 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 30). On the new track “Fate,” Russ delivers some words while in a reflective state about his current position in life:
One way or another, I’ma figure this out / Don’t know where, don’t know when, and I don’t know how (How), so I’ma just drink, smoke, chalk it up to fate/ So I’ma just drink, smoke, chalk it up to fate (Yeah)
In the belly of the beast, I’m in a telly on the East/ Coutin’ up another million, you can’t tell me I don’t eat/ So what’s the reservation? Dawg, you just got rich, I need flowers like I just got sick/ I be looking ‘round the game like, “You just not it”
The new song is a follow up to his most recent drops “Lake Como,” “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.
Be sure to press play on Russ’ brand new track “Fate.”
