Billions Drops Smooth, Saxophone-Heavy Single ‘Broken Heart’
Billions, the Hackney born, enigmatic artist comes through with ‘BrokenHeart’ the fourth single off his critically acclaimed debut mixtape ‘Thirteen13’ which deservedly reached #1 in the UK Rap charts.
Billions gained notoriety for coming into the game as a respected hustler, showing off his flashy and exuberant lifestyle from day one. Along the way, he earned respect amongst his peers for his true authenticity in his subject matter, something very rare in rap music nowadays. As Billions continues to rise in the rap scene, he continues to carve out a unique space for himself as one of the figureheads of ‘luxurious rap’, although always keeping it 100.
This new single is the first drop following the release of his #1 mixtape which amassed huge critical acclaim. ‘Broken Heart’is a smooth, saxophone-heavy banger, something very different to his previous singles on the tape, including the club track ‘Motive’ and the street classics ‘Make It Home’ and ’10Toes’–proving Billions is one of the most versatile artists in the game right now. The video, shot by London videography giant Suave, continues Billions luxury rap narrative, with him dressed in the finest Gucci drip, rolling in aRange with a Rollie on his wrist; while candidly talking us through his struggles with heartbreak.
‘Thirteen13’ shows Billion’s honing-in on his trademark US inspired swagger and combining it with a pure grassroots London attitude to create a project that’s packed with the melodic, relaxed trip. Rumored to have taken around two years to make, the streets have been crying out for Thirteen 13.
With plenty more videos on the way, Billions shows no sign of stopping. Be ready this summer as 2019 is surely his year.Tweet
