Last month, Lord Felix was among the new voices in hip-hop to deliver on their latest entry into the pool, arriving with his debut In Bloom, Forever effort. The result was a textured introduction to one of New England's most promising stars and if you happened to lend your ear to the tracklist in full, you may have caught a listen to the project select "Worst Summer Ever."
Notably, the track borrows from Elton John's "Bennie And The Jets" opening piano sequence, making it the basis for the cut's backdrop as Felix lets loose on vulnerability, showcasing a knack for storytelling and detailing a relationship gone sour, beginning with the tender moments of a chance encounter leading to the post-breakup social media watching.
Now, Felix has dropped off a live recording of the track, the third and final clip in a series of live performances designed to represent highlights of his catalog. Complete with a live band, Lord Felix recaptures the heartbreak woven into "Worst Summer Ever" and serves up a refreshing take on one of Elton John's finest works.
Now it's why we being distant?
And why you be acting so different
I ain't do nothing with those bitches
Even though rappers ain't good with commitment
