As if to keep it a secret, Florida native drops single unannounced.
$NOT can be an impulsive individual, posting and deleting song snippets at times and randomly deactivating and reactivating his Twitter last month. To add to the spontaneity, $NOT released his single “Chromehearts” on the afternoon of Aug. 18 solely on YouTube and SoundCloud, mentioning in full transparency he may delete it in the future.
$NOT has had great success with his prior singles released in 2021. April’s release “Whipski” from $NOT and Lil Skies saw the duo establish exceptional chemistry, with Skies’ party-life energy and $NOT’s poised vibe. Then in late May, he and fellow Floridian up-and-comer Cochise reached a landmark accomplishment by landing their first Billboard Hot 100 song with “Tell Em.”
July saw $NOT drop a highly-anticipated single “Red,” describing it as a “very unorthodox, eccentric $NOT song” which has since garnered over 6 million streams on Spotify. Two weeks later he would link up with BROCKHAMPTON frontman Kevin Abstract and British rap icon slowthai for the in-your-face, unapologetic banger “SLUGGER,” where $NOT seamlessly inserts his brash verse into the chaotic atmosphere of the song.
Now, although it may not be an official single since it was left off DSPs, “Chromehearts” sees $NOT fall in love with an intricate hook, reciting it three times with the third rendition utilizing his distorted, fading voice while only having a singular verse. Over the funky string-infused instrumental, $NOT’s flow is confident as he establishes a comfortable rhythm and rides in until the song’s end.
$NOT never posted to social media to announce “Chromehearts,” and the title of the song posted to YouTube includes in parentheses that he will “delete later.” So, check out his new song “Chromehearts” below before it is too late.
