Don’t worry; even though Russ‘s latest single is titled Goodbye, he is not leaving our pages anytime soon. In fact, next week his Pink Elephant album will be available for free streaming and download here in the Booth. He is, however, saying Goodbye to a not-so-loyal, faithful or pleasant ex-girl. Behind the boards, Russ flips the classic (and thematically appropriate) I Wish I Loved You into a feathery, string-laced beat. The angelic instrumental is perfect to back Russ as he exorcises some serious demons, delivering his bars in a frenzied, passionate flow. While you await the January 23, release of Pink Elephant, why not check out the artist’s last feature, September’s Climb on Top?
Update: We have added the Bugus-directed visuals for Russ’ Goodbye single.
