WasteLand and BOI – “Rich Friends” music video
‘Rich Friends’ tells a down-to-earth tale about a young woman who decides to get in tune with herself and just do her. Apparently, she has free love to give in a world that’s being supervised by the rich. Later, she admits, “I’m still rolling in a ’98 Honda, I keep it around as a constant reminder that some ain’t as lucky as me, and not everything in life comes free. The AC is like Russian Roulette, I flip the switch, don’t know what I’ll get.”
‘Rich Friends’ contains a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and melodic hooks that will resonate well with fans of zedd, Dualities, and Cheat Codes. The ready-made dance anthem possesses acoustic guitar, poignant synths, and horn-laden instrumentation bursting with festive dance-pop energy. Furthermore, “Rich Friends” serves as a tasty appetizer of what listeners can expect to hear from WasteLand and BOI in the near future as they continue to release new and exciting music.
“I never really minded being trust fund free.”
