NEW YORK, NY (June 22, 2018) — Today, buzzing French hip-hop artist Rilès releases his new single “!I’ll Be Back!”
Get it HERE via Republic Records.
Driven by roaring horns and an airtight beat, the track showcases his off-kilter creativity and inimitable charisma. Over this unpredictable soundscape, he drops clever rhymes and a catchy chorus. It’s emblematic of his outlier approach and show-stopping style.
The song represents the culmination of a massive undertaking by Rilès. It all started in his bedroom—which doubles as a creative hive. He produces, writes, and records music in this tiny space (it’s also where you can find him often painting and crafting visual art as well). From that D.I.Y. headquarters, he made the decision to release one new song per week (52 in total) as part of his highly touted Rilèsundayz initiative. He kept the promise with a slew of songs on a weekly basis, and it finally concludes with the unveiling of his new major label single “!I’ll Be Back!”
“!I’ll Be Back!” arrives hot on the heels of his U.S. debut single “Should I,” which has already cracked 4.8 million Spotify streams. Meanwhile, the song’s self-directed music video just crossed the 4-million-mark on YouTube within a month’s time.
Be on the lookout for more from Rilès soon as he is currently on his Summer Festival tour, the remaining tour dates can be found below.
Out of a tiny makeshift bedroom studio, Rilès became the talk of Europe and Africa. Between graduating from a French scientific high school and studying English literature at the University of Rouen, he began painting, producing, writing, recording, mixing, mastering, and engineering an undeniable underground catalog in this tiny space. His YouTube channel impressively exceeded the 100-million-mark on YouTube by dropping one song per week from September 2016 through September 2017. Additionally, he sold out every date of his first tour as “Brothers” cracked 11 million Spotify streams with “Thank God” eclipsing 9 million on the platform.
