We’re just a few weeks away from the highly anticipated debut album by The Kid LAROI, titled The First Time. Last week, we were treated to a fresh glimpse of the album with the song “Too Much,” which features a collaboration with Jung Kook and Central Cee and today at midnight LAROI released a brand-new single, “What Just Happened,” a fan-favorite that he has been performing on tour.
The song’s music video features LAROI and a group of his friends in a woodland setting, embarking on a unique journey. Distorted images and hallucinations provide LAROI with a newfound sense of clarity. He’s distressed after an argument with his girlfriend that occurred while he was under the influence. The song delves into his self-reflection and shortcomings, all set against a backdrop of pop-rock-inspired music.
He sings in one of the verses, “Lost in a dark place / And I called when I was wasted, and what did I say to you? / Uh, all I remember was how the liquor tasted / Then I woke up in my bed tryna retrace it,” showcasing his evolved lyrical and vocal abilities.
Mark your calendars for the release of The First Time on November 10, which will be available through Columbia Records. Pre-Save the album now.
