Late last week, Nigerian-born rapper Tobi Lou returned with a brand-new track titled “Endorphins.”
The song, set to appear on his forthcoming album Parrish Blue, features an upbeat and spacey pop production that contrasts with the song’s bleak lyrics. On it, Tobi Lou laments about unrequited love and the problems the world’s currently facing. “Money got me bawling / My eyes been bawling / President keep falling / My fate still stormy / You should be cautious,” he rap-sings on the chorus.
Last Thursday, Lou also released a video for his earlier single “Pretty Much.” It’s a simplistic yet eye-catching clip that finds the rapper lazing in a gorgeous field of orange flowers. Halfway, the visual cuts to Tobi Lou on alone stage sporting a red jersey, while projections of the rapper and his friends appear behind him.
In July, Tobi Lou released his three-track EP Lingo Starr, which featured songs that referenced popular Hollywood titles like Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and the Jackie Chan-starring action flick Drunken Master.
