Lil Uzi Vert has delivered one of his first solo songs of the year just two days out from Halloween, aptly titled ‘Demon High’.

Following more of a pop route than most of his recent work, ‘Demon High’ marks Uzi’s first solo release since he appeared on the soundtrack for Space Jam: A New Legacy. Prior to that, he dropped ‘Lil Uzi Vert vs. The World 2’, a reissue of the rapper’s second studio album, ‘Eternal Atake’, which had arrived a week prior.
On the new single’s artwork, Uzi sits on bleachers surrounded by people who are all dressed in goth, emo and punk styles. Notably, the $24million (£17million) diamond that Uzi had implanted in his forehead – before it was torn from him during his set at Rolling Loud – is still missing, instead replaced with a piercing.
Listen to ‘Demon High’ below.
While ‘Demon High’ is Uzi’s first solo single in almost two years, he has delivered a colossal amount of collaborations throughout the past year. He and Future released a joint album ‘Pluto x Baby Pluto’ just under a year ago, before kicking 2021 off by appearing alongside Justin Bieber on the deluxe edition of his album ‘Justice’.
