The Kid LAROI has been making a name for himself with his brand of emo rap. His mixtape F*CK LOVE debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart and he continues to gain massive streaming numbers from his music. He’s such a force with streams that the Australian-bred rapper joined forces with Spotify to become one of their RADAR artists in 2019.
On Wednesday (March 24), LAROI dropped the latest additions to the streaming platform’s Spotify Singles playlist. The first song is an acoustic version of his platinum-certified hit “WITHOUT YOU” off his recently released Columbia Records project, F*CK LOVE (SAVAGE). The other song is a piano-led cover of Drake’s single “Shot For Me” off 2011’s Take Care.
“I chose Drake because he’s my favorite artist,” The Kid LAROI said about covering the 6 God. “‘Shot For Me’ is one of my favorite songs off of one of my favorite projects, and that made it really easy for me to do.”
