Kris Wu Releases 'Coupe' With Rich the Kid Ahead of 'Antares' Album: Listen
In the swaggering collaboration with Rich the Kid, the Chinese hip-hop star uses “Coupe” as a display of his success as one of China’s most popular artists, singing about cars and penthouse suites as a sign of their success. “I'm working harder than you/ Ain't going to lie that's true/ I'm working harder than you/ No I speak the truth,” he raps over bouncing hi-hats in the chorus.
Ahead of releasing “Coupe” on Thursday, Wu announced Antares, his first solo album, set to be released on Nov. 2. It will feature a total of 11 songs, including previous releases “Like That,” which went to No. 73 on the Billboard Hot 100 dated June 2, and “Deserve” with Travis Scott. Two tracks, “Tough Pill” and “Hold Me Down,” will also be featured in entirely Chinese versions.
A popular Chinese musician and actor, and judge on the hugely popular competition show The Rap of China, Wu signed an exclusive international recording agreement with Interscope Records / Universal Music Group (UMG) in April.
