Denzel Curry - 'Blood On My Nikez'

  • 2 min read

Denzel Curry releases new single 'Blood On My Nikez' a new collaboration with the legendary Juicy J for which Denzel teased his verse last week when he released the Omar Jones-directed music video for the song ahead of today's official single.

The song arrives off the back of placing his coveted #2 placement on triple j's Hottest 100 of Like a Version for 'Bulls On Parade' and what has proven to be a busy summer for Denzel. The release has been highly anticipated by fans after he previewed the song on his Australian tour dates earlier this year at Groovin The Moo festival and sideshows in April.

'Blood On My Nikez' marks Denzel's first original single of 2023 following his 'Live At Electric Lady' EP that was released in May in partnership with Spotify and found him reuniting with Cold Blooded Soul Band (with whom he performed his Tiny Desk Concert for NPR and The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon appearance) to perform four standouts from his 2022 album Melt My Eyez See Your Future in addition to covers of Erykah Badu's 'Didn't Cha Know' (the original version of which was also recorded at Electric Lady) that enlists the legendary Bilal and Shogun’s 'Lonely Man' (from Japanese TV Series 'Detective Story'), as well as the previously-unreleased 'Endtroduction'.

After a series of concept-driven, critically-acclaimed albums, 'BLOOD ON MY NIKEZ' serves as a return to Denzel's roots that nods to his early fan-favourite projects 'Nostalgic 64' and 'Imperial', but wisened by the pop sensibilities he has steadily developed over the course of his career.

Last year, Denzel Curry dropped one of the most anticipated albums of the year, 'Melt My Eyez See Your Future' – the sound of the mercurial Miami rapper levelling up. His fifth album feature singles 'Troubles' with T-Pain, the samurai film-inspired 'Zatoichi' and triple j Hottest 100-voted single 'Walkin', which arrived with an epic Sci-Fi Western.
