RL Grime was one of the biggest influencers in the trap scene, but he’s ready to try something new. He’s an artist, you know? He’s got to let his colors develop. His latest track “Reims” is no subtle stroll through the park, but it does have a certain laidback cinematic quality. The synths are high-energy, all bleated out and exciting, but the hip-hop beat keeps things chill on the back end.
It’s not nearly a total departure from the sound fans have come to know and love, but it is a proper evolution. Three cheers to RL Grime for stepping out of the comfort zone. Listen to “Reims” below via Billboard Dance. Bonus points for the interactive visualizer.
