Chicago native, Leezy, just dropped her newest pensive single, “Cocaine Kisses,” making it her most vulnerable and empirical song yet.
The single embodies a cinematic sound and a melancholy rhythm combined with her sweeping contralto vocals. The track will take you on a euphoric feeling of the romanization of drug use, the seduction of addiction, and the illusion of connection. Leezy taps into the unfiltered world of addiction and healing, resonating with many who battle with addiction consequently ignoring red flags because of how good it feels to be high in the moment.
“It’s about how I used to associate a certain drug-induced experience with a person or relationship,” Leezy explains. Doleful lyrics like, “I can’t feel my heart when I’m high on you,” outlines Leezy’s post-rehab exploration on the unhealthy pull drugs had in her relationship. She credits the song’s narrative to her own experience as a former addict who glamorized drug use. “Although it may seem like a drug can ‘make you better,’ a love affair with substances is always toxic — full of ups and downs, break-ups and make-ups,” Leezy confesses.
Leezy’s new single will sway you to the floor as you close your eyes and twirl, embracing versatility, transformation, and above all freedom. “Cocaine Kisses,” will give you the ultimate high without the destructive consequences.
Leezy admits, “Although I’m sober now, I’ll be considered an addict “forever.”
“Cocaine Kisses,” is now available to stream and download on all digital music platforms worldwide.
