This past weekend, Russ kept his run of loose drops coming with the self-produced cut “Can’t Let Go,” an R&B vibe that sees him singing about a relationship that’s made it through obstacles without falling apart:
“No matter how much we fight, I can’t let go of you, you got this hold on me, I got this hold on you, ain’t nobody better for you, yeah, you know it’s true, girl, you know it’s me, just like I know it’s you, how many times we thought that we were done? And we came back, so, we ain’t goin’ nowhere ‘cause we love right where we at...”
“Can’t Let Go” follows what could be described as an album’s worth of music from the Atlanta-based talent, including “ThinkTooMuch,” “When I’m With You,” “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’ dropped off SHAKE THE SNOW GLOBE, his last full-length body of work as a Columbia-signed artist. SHAKE THE SNOW GLOBE contained 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 to enjoy. A fully independent Russ then dropped off CHOMP in November, a five-track EP with contributions from Ab-Soul, DJ Premier, Busta Rhymes, Black Thought, and more.
Press play on Russ’ latest. Hopefully, the consistent releases won’t stop any time soon.
