The new track, co-written with MBNel and producer Gwalla, marks PARIS.’s third release backed by Universal Music Canada and Partners Record Label. The Filipino-Canadian artist previously shared singles “Ice Spice” and “IDK” last year and has been celebrated by Biff Bam Pop who noted, “He’s got the goods to be an artist that lasts” and “Despite being so new in the game, PARIS. is quickly amassing quite the fanbase.”
“Me and Nel got in contact over Instagram. He always showed me love and we officially linked up when him and his team asked me to be a part of their tour stop in Toronto back in 2022. That’s when we locked in,” says PARIS. about his connection with MBNel. “Nel has always been super cool and he supported my music. Vice versa. We both were amped to get a record in together. We’d send some open verses over text and this one clicked. I’m looking forward to performing together in the future. Us both being Filipino and pursuing hip hop is a big step for sure.”
The smooth new single sees PARIS. overcoming the odds and placing his team on his back in the chorus, singing, “It’s Me N Mines, versus you and yours.” He goes on to open up about love, addressing the woman in his life and saying, “Been through a lot, I apologize for being distant.” In his verse, he confidently takes his place on the podium as one of the top rising stars from Vancouver, singing, “Baby, in my city I’m the hardest out.”
North California-based rapper MBNel rounds out the track with bars about his rags-to-riches story, which both artists can connect with. “Got it out the mud, I really came up from them trenches,” he sings. “Never thought I’d make it out, now I’m sliding ‘round in a Rolls.”
This is the first official collaboration between PARIS. and MBNel, who share strong chemistry over Gwalla’s production.
Kicking off 2024 with a bang, PARIS. intends to keep his foot on the pedal throughout the year with plans to release more new music and perform shows across international stages.
