Juice WRLD recorded a vast catalog within a short period, though many of these records have yet to be heard from the public. The rapper reportedly left behind 2,000 songs before his untimely death in 2021. The estate of the Chicago artist has slowly unveiled records from his vault, even as many of these songs leak onto the Internet. This week, Juice WRLD's single, "The Light" arrived in its entirety, following an announcement made by DJ Scheme on Wednesday promising new music from the late rapper. The single is expected to land on Juice WRLD's next project, The Party Never Ends.
"The Light" initially surfaced online last year, though there was no indication when it would hit streaming services. The latest record reflects Juice WRLD's unique blend of styles - his ethos for rap, blended with pop-punk influences and infectious radio-friendly melodies. Most importantly, "The Light" highlights Juice WRLD's relatability that turned him into a household name. Throughout the song, he details his personal struggles while reflecting on how his partner's helped him out of the dark place.
Juice WRLD's Estate Unveils "The Light"
The latest single marks his first posthumous release of the year. Since his 2019 death, the rapper's estate unloaded plenty of content, including a documentary and two out of three posthumous albums due out. Legends Never Die arrived in 2020, with singles such as "Come & Go," "Smile," and "Tell Me U Love Me." Then, Fighting Demons dropped the following year, which served as the second to last album in the posthumous trilogy.
Lil Bibby, the founder of Grade A, announced earlier this year that his final project, The Party Never Ends is currently in the works. "The Last Juice WRLD Album is in the works... We want this album to feel like a Celebration/Party! Let's celebrate the life of Juice," he wrote. "No more mourning, I want everyone that Juice loved while he was here to help celebrate, especially his fans who he loved! You guys have been the best fans an artist can have (Minus the death threats to Bibby)." Check out the new Juice WRLD single above.
I had to cuff you up, like a cop on a heist
Cupid is the judge, so I must testify
I won't move or budge, I'll stand by you for life
All my life, when you die is when I die
