Juice WRLD Releases New Song “Lace It” with Eminem & benny blanco
The late American rapper Juice WRLDs new song “Lace It” was released by the rapper's estate on December 16, 2023.
This time, American rapper Eminem and producer benny blanco teamed up for the song.
This marks the second posthumous collaboration between Juice WRLD and Eminem since the 2020 single “Godzilla”.
While, benny blanco worked with Juice WRLD on a handful of tracks together prior to the rapper's death, including “Roses”, “Black & White”, “Graduation”, and the posthumous “Real Shit”.
The track was written by Benjamin Levin, Jarad Higgins, Luis Resto, Magnus August Høiberg, Marshall Mathers, and Nathan Perez. Produced by benny blanco, Cashmere Cat, Happy Perez, and Eminem.
Juice WRLD's mother Carmela Wallace said of the song in a statement, “I can recall Jarad (Juice WRLD's real name Jarad Anthony Higgins) playing Eminem's music on repeat at home because he was a huge fan. This is a bittersweet moment for me; I am happy that Jarad had a chance to make music with someone he admired and sad that he cannot be here to take in the moment; Jarad left us way too soon.”
- Back in February, Juice WRLD's estate announced that his fifth and final studio album “The Party Never Ends”, was in active development.
The new song will appear on the album.
Lil Bibby, who is the founder of Juice WRLD's record label, Grade A Productions, shared on social media, “The Last Juice WRLD Album is in the works… We want this album to feel like a Celebration/Party! Let's celebrate the life of Juice. No more mourning, I want everyone that Juice loved while he was here to help celebrate, especially his fans who he loved! You guys have been the best fans an artist can have (Minus the death threats to Bibby). I'm not gonna complain but i'll jus say this is not easy. We miss you, We love you 999 til the world ends.”
Juice WRLD passed away on December 8, 2019 at the age of 21 from a drug-related seizure.
Four months later, his mother Carmela Wallace announced the establishment of the Live Free 999 Fund, which aims to support young people in their battles with anxiety, addiction, and depression.
