“Tonight we will be releasing a song called ‘Righteous’ which Juice made from his home studio in Los Angeles. We hope you enjoy this new music and continue to keep Juice’s spirit alive. Stay safe everyone,” read the note posted to Juice WRLD’s verified Twitter account on Thursday.
“Righteous” landed with an official music video that featured clips of Juice as well as anime-style animation. Steve Cannon directed, shot, and edited the visuals. The animation was created by Tristan Zammit, Bao, Geoffrey Maclean, and Michael Sung.
Jarad “Juice WRLD” Higgins passed away at 21 on December 8, 2019, from an apparent drug overdose. Earlier this year, his vocals appeared on Eminem’s “Godzilla” which peaked in the Top 3 of the Hot 100 chart. The “Suicidal” collaboration with YMW Melly also hit the Top 20 in 2020.
