Lil Uzi Vert Previews New Music From ‘Luv Is Rage 2’
Is LUV is Rage 2 coming soon? Really, we have no idea, but Lil Uzi Vert did offer up a preview of a song from the project during a recent Instagram Live session. You can check out the snippet for yourself below.
The track he previews appears to be called "Sauce It Up," and with a thumping, slightly mysterious sounding instrumental and one of Uzi's catchy hooks, it feels like a serious banger.
The hook for the track keeps it simple, with Uzi's higher pitch voice contrasting with the darker sound of the beat. "Sauce it up/Do too much/Ain't enough/Ain't enough/Where you from/Throw it up/Going nuts/Going dumb," he raps on the hook.
All in all, the record sounds pretty fire, and we can't wait for Uzi to drop it. But when will he, though? There's really no telling. Speaking on LUV Is Rage 2 back in April, Don Cannon, who co-founded the imprint Uzi's signed to, explained that mixing and mastering was holding up the release of his album.
“If you didn’t hear, LUV Is Rage is not dropping no time soon. It’s not going to be a long time from now, but not within this month,” Cannon said on social media a couple of months ago. “We still working on the album. It’s a process. You got to make the album, mix the album, master the album. Put it out. That takes time when you’re perfecting it.”
Uzi's just a few weeks removed from having his hit single “XO Tour Llif3” reach platinum status, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him land another platinum single when LUV Is Rage 2 finally drops.
