Can you believe Run The Jewels have given us two bangers in a matter of days? The single is the second taster from their forthcoming, fourth album, RTJ4. It’s called ‘Ooh LA LA’ and it’s a bop and a half.
It’s been four years since we last sank our teeth into a fresh Run The Jewels album, so maybe they’re trying to make up for lost time time…
We received the first single, ‘Yankee and the Brave (ep. 4)’ via Instagram a couple of days ago. Then the track appeared on streaming services just yesterday.
The new single, ‘Ooh LA LA’ follows it up and it’s a lot more chill. It features DJ Premier and Greg Nice from Nice & Smooth. Run The Jewels have also sampled a Greg Nice line from Gang Starr’s song ‘DWYCK’.
You can listen to the new Run The Jewels offering, ‘Ooh LA LA’ down below.
Run The Jewels were scheduled to play Coachella next month and head on tour with Rage Against The Machine. All April dates have been postponed due to COVID-19.
The duo had previously said that RTJ4 would be ready for their Coachella set, however we don’t have an official release date yet.
“I do apologize for your stress. The album will be out before we play Coachella and def not this month that’s all I can say now,” El-P said on Twitter. He also said he and Killer Mike would have a “hard date” for us soon.
“I’m not mad at people wanting the record that’s love. But yeah I don’t have a choice but to wait until it’s mixed, mastered and ready to go,” El added.
