Memphis crunk revivalist Duke Deuce has been known for his abrasive approach and high energy hits in recent years. However, while he hopes to be seen as the leader of the new wave crunk movement, he refuses to be boxed in.
On April 15, Duke Deuce dropped his new single “Running Out Of Love,” which features guitarist Dante Smith, who helps contribute to the downtrodden atmosphere of the heartbreak anthem.
Over the pop-rock production, Duke introduces an auto-tuned flow on the hook that asserts how he does not have much love or affection more to give because of the hardship he has been through.
10 toes down I forever ride
I’m gangster ’til I die
All this damn pain makes it hard to cry
It maybe cause that I’m
Running out of love
Running out of love“Running Out Of Love” — Duke Deuce featuring Dante Smith
Within the verses on “Running Out Of Love,” Duke spits bars about how it doesn’t take much for he and his crew to get riled up, and continues to reiterate that he is not looking for a relationship or significant other, saying “you can keep your love, nah I just wanna fuck.”
“Running Out Of Love” will likely serve as a promotional single for Duke’s upcoming album Crunkstar, which he announced was finished at the beginning of March.
Other songs that have dropped since his 2021 album Duke Nukem like “WTF,” “I Ain’t Worried Bout It” and February’s collaboration with Rico Nasty “Falling Off” should all also serve as pre-released singles. All of these bangers mixed with versatile, melodic tracks like “Running Out Of Love” will likely show an evolution in Duke Deuce’s artistry.
