AceShowbiz - Rising star Juice WRLD continues dominating the music industry. Following the success of his single "Lucid Dreams", the young rapper has recruited Lil Uzi Vert for a collaborative track entitled "Wasted", which was released on Tuesday, July 10.
The melancholy track features Juice and Uzi trading lyrics about an unhealthy relationship with a girl who is always under the influence of drugs. "She do cocaine in my basement/ I'm her doctor but I'm runnin' out of patience/ She told me that she tryna get closer to Satan/ She be talkin' to him when she in the matrix," the 19-year-old spitter raps, before Uzi follows it up with references to "Avatar" and "The Lion King".
"Wasted" is the fourth single off Juice's debut studio album "Goodbye & Good Riddance". It is also the first single that Juice unveiled after releasing his two-song EP "Too Soon.." One song off the effort, "Legends", is a tribute to deceased rappers Lil Peep and XXXTENTACION, the latter of whom died from gunshot at the age of 20. The track debuted at No. 65 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.
Juice has been enjoying his fame thanks to his breakout single "Lucid Dreams", which peaked at No. 3 on Hot 100. His debut studio album also received similar success as it peaked at No. 6 on Billboard 200 in addition to getting positive reviews from music critics.
Besides working on his music, Juice is currently gearing up for a North American tour in support of his debut effort. The tour will kick off on July 11 at Light Nightclub in Las Vegas and wrap up on September 14 at the Strand in Providence. The Chicago native can also be seen in a new short film for Apple Music's "Up Next" series.
