Today, rising rapper-singer-songwriter TheHxliday continues his custom of sharing music on special occasions, this time dropping the crushing single “Wit Dat (feat. Polo G)” in observance of Earth Day. The 19-year-old multitalented genre-bending artist links up with the latest Billboard Hot 100 Chart Topping “RAPSTAR,” Chicago MC Polo G for the excitable, shape-shifting cut, which serves as the first single from his forthcoming EP, The Most Beautiful Disaster, coming soon. Listen here.
“Wit Dat (feat. Polo G)” finds TheHxliday expressing his edgier street leaning trap side, letting listeners know he’s always ready to rumble for whatever life throws at him, whether that’s romance or confrontation. Accompanied by airy flutes and poignant keys, his message hits hard, especially when he sings about feeling “brokenhearted” and “loss.” TheHxliday displays his versatility on this raw street-leaning record. Polo G complements TheHxliday with a war-ready verse of his own aimed at haters.
“Wit Dat (feat. Polo G)” is the latest entry in an impressively productive streak for TheHxliday. On St. Patrick’s Day, he shared the speaker-knocking “Opps,” which was the first single to follow his recent EP, Batbxy. Released on New Year’s Day, Batbxy shows off TheHxliday’s uncanny knack for infectious and otherworldly melodies. Across the EP’s six tracks, which include singles like the moody “Thank U” and the carefree “Laugh A Little,” the young artist sings with an uplifting energy that belies the pain expressed in the lyrics. Most recently, TheHxliday released an emotional visual for the R&B-influenced banger “Nxbody,” and a romantic clip for his Gen Z love anthem “Batgirl.”
Batbxy was merely the first salvo in what’s shaping up to be a busy 2021 for TheHxliday. Since he started posting to SoundCloud in his adolescence, he’s made upwards of 1,000 songs, including his emotional 2018 breakout “Enemy,” which caught the attention of tastemaking multimedia crew Lyrical Lemonade, and sharp songs like “Save Me,” which received praise by the likes of COMPLEX and FLAUNT. “Wit Dat (feat. Polo G)” is another reminder to always keep a watchful eye on the calendar—Hxliday season approaches.
