Torii Wolf “Body” (Produced by araabMUZIK)
Thanks to her sultry voice, range and vast musical talent (let us not forget DJ Premier’s production) Torii Wolf has enjoyed a precipitous rise over the last four months. Though she has yet to release her debut album, Flow Riiot, (which is a collaborative project with DJ Premier), Torii has already premiered music with Pitchfork, Hotnewhiphop, Mass Appeal, Vibe & Okayplayer, been tapped for Vevo’s “dscvr” series (past alumni include Tove Lo, Sam Smith, Hozier, DNCE, Alessia Cara) and she was recently highlighted by Apple Music.
Today, via an exclusive Complex Premiere, Torii Wolf returns with “Body,” a new, non-LP cut which has her collaborating with araabMUZIK (who also produced the entirety of Joe Budden’s forthcoming Rage & The Machine album). “Working with Torii was incredible” araabMuzik commented to Complex. “Two very unique styles (dope vocals and a dope track) merging to create a masterpiece. Big shout-out to DJ Premier for the opportunity to work with Torii; she is the future.”
Similar to her previous singles, “1st” and “Shadows Crawl,” Torii continues to display an innate ability to channel mood over araab’s canvas with “Body.” “There is nothing like the hot summer rain in New York. It has always felt so sexy to me” Torii relayed to Complex. “That heat, the heat caused by friction and deep connection. I wrote this song about how much I need to torrentially fall with the rain.”
With a hip-hop king who has a habit of contributing and producing historic projects behind the boards, Torii Wolf and DJ Premier’s forthcoming collaborative union bum-rushes the walls of genre, age, and expectations to let the world know there’s a Flow Riiot going on.
