Three name artists, The Weeknd, Belly and Nas have banned together to make a new single called “Die For It.” The single was released from Belly’s sixth album See You Next Wednesday on August 27th via XO Records/ ROC Records.
“Die For It” starts with Belly looking around at the world that has just gone through an apocalypse. The sky has gone dark red, buildings demolished and on fire, streets empty of all life and one last message from the TV before it catches on fire. The video leans heavily on the concept of heaven and hell especially after everything that has happened in the last year and a half. See You Next Wednesday goes in a whole different direction than Belly’s Dove album as of lately the songs Belly has put out have more of a rap and heavier tone that speak about what he’s going through lately. For instance, in “Die For It” Belly sings, “I remember sleepin’ on floors and missin’ tours, I was rock bottom” just shows how things aren’t going as well as they could be.
Belly shares why he made “Die For It”: “I went through certain stuff that affected my ideology. A lot of it stemmed from incidents that I can’t really talk about due to legal stuff. You know when you grow up and you spend most of your adult life even believing something? And then there’s events that can shake the way you think or believe in something? Coming back from that for me was pretty tough. Now it’s not something that even affects me negatively anymore. I think about it, and I’m just happy that I made it through something as extensive as I did.”
