JUNO-nominated artist Lou Phelps has released the anthemic “Want To (For The Youth)“. The track follows the release of his breakout single “Come Inside (ft. Jazz Cartier)”, both of which are co-produced by his fellow Celestics member KAYTRANADA.
Phelps also dropped a video on Complex Magazine today, who noted:
At first glance, the glitchy Pique-directed visuals are eye-catching and work with the pace of Kaytranada’s dizzying production. However, Phelps explains that the video isn’t just about making something visually appealing to go along with this youthful anthem, but proving how much some of us only care about “cool” things. “‘Want To’ is a song for the youth, to encourage them to do what they want to,” says Phelps. “I rap about materialistic stuff in the song, so in the video I become invisible at certain times, leaving the material things floating in air like the gold chain or the purple jackets.”
Lou Phelps continues to showcase his ability to simultaneously make a track you want to move to, but also play on repeat to hype up your badass mood for the day. Regardless if he raps over a danceable record or bass-heavy one, Phelps continues to hold our attention.
