Paris Louis breaks down his collaboration “My Side” with Gxlden Child & CMPLX

Montreal, QC – Last week COB65 collective artist Paris Louis teamed up with Gxlden Child and CMPLX for this new release titled “My Side.”

“My Side” is a trap anthem that brings us into Paris’ inner world and his inner circle. There’s a duality to the track’s title “My Side”; which refers to both the different sides of Paris Louis, as well as the people in his life who stay on his side.

Paris doesn’t have a ton of music released right now, but this track seems to deviate from his typical M.O. A lot of his previous work is much more rooted in singing, vocals, and R&B vibes.

But this track switches up pace for Paris with a disgusting CMPLX trap beat and a bar-driven vocal approach. This is on some real nice melodic trap vibes. Listen to “My Side” below, and scope our interview with Paris after the jump.

Q&A: Paris Louis

HipHopCanada: Start off by telling me about the significance of this song to you on a personal level.

Paris Louis: I just wanted to let people know how it be on my side in my city of Montreal and how my crew be on a daily basis.

HipHopCanada: I feel like “My Side” has a double meaning. Because on the one hand, it’s kind of a reference to the different sides to your own personal being. But it’s also in reference to having your team of people – the people who are on “your side”.

Paris Louis: It’s exactly that, I couldn’t have explained it better.

HipHopCanada: Tell me the story behind how the collaboration with Gxlden Child came about for this one.

Paris Louis: Well we have the same entourage so he hit me up saying we needed to link up. And at that time I was recording “My Side”. So when he pulled up to the studio he heard it and the rest is history.

HipHopCanada: This track (and well as your last few tracks) have been much more rap-driven than your earlier work, which was much more on some R&B, singing vibes. Talk to me about that progression.

Paris Louis: I love to sing. I’ve been singing since I was 7. But I just felt like I needed to find myself in my music and do something that my listeners can relate to on a personal level. I feel like I have to find myself, and the path that I’m taking right now.

HipHopCanada: Talk to me about the significance of your cover art, and what “sides” of yourself it is meant to represent.

Paris Louis: The cover was made by Rawssi. He’s an amazing graphics artist and also happens to be my manager. So he knows where I wanted to take this cover. My life has always been upside-down but no matter what I’m still gonna win in God’s eyes.
