On Wednesday (May 10), TIDAL returns with a new original series titled Car Test, spearheaded by the platform's editorial director and veteran music journalist Elliott Wilson.

The newly developed series entails Wilson pairing up with artists and listening to their new projects in a car. For the debut episode, Wilson teamed up with rising sensation Russ, who premiered his debut album There's Really a Wolf during their adventure. In the midst of their ride, the "What They Want" star broke down the creative process behind his debut effort. 

In recent years, Wilson has crafted a slew of series, including Rap Radar's interview show CRWN and his Rap Radar podcast. As for TIDAL, they too have expanded their ecosystem exponentially: Since the streaming service's inception dating back to 2014, TIDAL has created a series of films, including Nick Jonas's Last Year Was Complicated, Nicki Minaj's The Pinkprint Movie and Beyonce's visual album Lemonade. On the flip-side, they've also carved a lane for exclusive and original content, most notably Hip Hop Improv and the TIDAL Rising docu-series. 

Take a look at the debut episode of Car Test featuring Russ below.
