XUAVE’s new single “Worry” is the third release off his alternative rap EP, Glum

Ottawa, ON – Based out of Ottawa, and currently rooted in Toronto, 19 year old XUAVE has been building up his fan base in central Canada over this last year with his collective RBLx. He set our standards high with the successful release of his first EP Ego Birth (which had an impressive feature from Nessly that you’ll want to check), and he’s been working away on a part 2 with his solidified producer, Richie Souf.

To tide fans over until the release of his anticipated followup, he’s dropped four tracks from an alternative rap project that he’s completed on the side.  Premiering today, “Worry” is the fourth release from the Glum EP and potentially the strongest yet. The track exudes a confident aura of reassurance for fans who have been loyal to his grind. And, most starkly apparent is his obvious versatility within the rap genre as he swiftly convinces listeners that alternative rap can still make you feel like turning up.

Making banging music obviously comes with a variety of challenges. XUAVE was able to shed some light on his brind, and described, “I am an artist, producer, songwriter and self proclaimed pop star. My collective and I have been banned from every club in the city because we’re too wild when we perform. No exaggeration. Now we throw our own shows and they’re more live than whatever any promoters in the city do.” After listening to this latest single, we’ll bite.

Check out “Worry” below.
