    When last we saw Towkio, the Chicago-born rapper and producer was commanding a sexy cult in the video for single “Hot Shit”. WWW, his follow-up to 2015’s .Wav Theory, is forthcoming, and now he’s dropped another new song with the chill, woozy “Swim”.

    A press release calls it “the most ambitious track of his career,” and there is a lushness here that feels fresh within the young artist’s work. Swooning, cinematic strings, handclaps, and a heavenly chorus underscore Towkio’s energetic rhymes, resulting in a track that’s by far the rapper’s most romantic.

    See its accompanying lyric video above, which is framed through the reflection of a wave pool in Chicago.
