Lola Brooke, the breakout rapper from Brooklyn, has dropped a brand new single “Just Relax” via Arista Records/Team Eighty Productions. The track is a dynamic reinterpretation of Black Sheep’s classic hip-hop hit “The Choice Is Yours” and comes with an accompanying music video directed by Shanghaii, watch below.
Lola Brooke’s latest offering showcases her exceptional talent for bridging generations through her music. With a distinctive sound and sharp delivery, she brings a refreshing burst of energy to the contemporary hip-hop scene. “Just Relax” takes this to the next level as she revitalizes a culture-shifting classic from hip-hop duo Black Sheep, consisting of Andres “Dres” Vargas Titus and William “Mista Lawnge” McLean. In the video, Dres makes a memorable cameo appearance, adding his stamp of approval to Lola’s take on the track.
The visuals for “Just Relax” pay homage to the golden age of hip-hop, with Lola sporting retro-style outfits including bamboo earrings remixed into a runway-ready accessory, a classic denim-on-denim ensemble, and a tracksuit that celebrates the lasting impact of hip-hop culture. As the genre celebrates its 50th anniversary, “Just Relax” serves as the perfect soundtrack for the present, celebrating hip-hop’s global impact.
Lola Brooke’s previous single “Don’t Play With It” held the number one spot on the Urban radio charts for two consecutive weeks, and also debuted on the Billboard Top 100 charts earlier this month. With over 100 million worldwide streams to date, she has been announced as one of the official performers at Hot 97’s Summer Jam, marking the start of her next round of festival performances in the US and Europe, including Broccoli Festival, WOO HAH!
