Fivio Foreign, The Kid LAROI take fans from ‘Paris to Tokyo’ on ‘Rocketeer’ sampled collab

As drill music continues to grow in popularity, artists from other sub-genres are beginning to collaborate with our favorite New York artists for some unexpected hits.

Continuing this trend, drill pioneer Fivio Foreign has taken it a step further as his creative use of samples injects a sense of nostalgia into his new releases. Once again, the New York rapper interpolates a classic sample and includes a well-placed feature on his latest single “Paris to Tokyo.”

Fivio and Australian-born superstar The Kid LAROI make a surprisingly perfect duo as many fans will immediately recognize the sample of Far East Movement’s hit single “Rocketeer.” The instrumental complements Ryan Tedder’s iconic hook with sliding 808s and bumping kicks, as Laroi’s hook instantly turns up the energy with his pop-rap delivery — questioning whether his latest love interest is real or imagined.

“Livin’ reckless, huh

In the crib, drinkin’ and walkin’ ’round naked

We order a piña colada for breakfast

And we sexin’, huh

No Instagram, no textin’

Turn off the light, and I fuck her to Netflix”

Fivio Foreign — “Paris to Tokyo”

After the chorus, Fivio’s verse gives fans his patented drill flow with a love-struck twist — detailing romantic adventures with his newfound international fame. Hectic visuals for the track feature LAROI and Fivio surrounded by drifting cars as they sing their hearts out in the middle of an abandoned warehouse.

Fivio hasn’t let off the gas after dropping his proper debut album B.I.B.L.E. in April — complete with an insane feature list including the likes of Kanye West, A$AP Rocky, Quavo and many more. His last project used a couple of iconic samples as well, including Destiny Child’s “Say My Name” on “What’s My Name” and Ellie Goulding’s “Lights” on “World Watching.”

LAROI has been relatively quiet so far in 2022, recently dropping his first single of the year in “Thousand Miles,” a more melancholic pop cut that is a complete 180 from his latest drill collaboration.

As both artists have solidified their respective stardom in the past year, their new collab is a full-circle moment for how far some of our favorite artists have come in the last few years — and how far they’ll continue to go.
