Rilès is a French Algerian rapper. Not too long ago, he released an entertaining lyric video for his “GOA” single (pronounced GWA), recorded at the legendary Paramount Recording Studio in Hollywood.
Rilès – “GOA” lyric video
“I was making music for fun to share a vibe other than something really lyrical or too romanticized or something that’s too poetic. I just wanted to go with the vibe and the flow. It was really no problems and no pressure while creating.” – Rilès stated
‘GOA’ is a self-confident stance of empowerment. The Rilès-directed lyric video finds the artist and his homies in a remote location. Later, viewers see them stunting with their Tik-Tok ready dance moves dripping with animations.
‘GOA’ contains a relatable narrative, Auto-tuned falsetto, and catchy English and French bars. Also, the likable tune possesses melodic instrumentation flavored with skittering beat, neon keys, and off-kilter bass lines. Furthermore, “GOA” serves as a wonderful presentation to what listeners can expect to hear from Rilès in the near future.
In 2019, Rilès became a recognized force in French music with the release of his 2019 full- length debut, WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE. The project put up huge numbers with the hit songs, “MARIJUANA” (55M global streams), and “THANK GOD” (41M global streams).
Before then, Rilès caught the world’s attention in 2016 when he decided to pen, produce, perform, record, mix, master, and engineer one song per week for a year straight—all done in his childhood bedroom. These 52 tracks populated his YouTube channel as he completed this run in September 2017, tallying 300 million-plus views and 300 million streams.
