Lierda is a Lebanese-Canadian hip-hop banner, which over the years has become a sublime exploration of electronic and hip-hop interactions. The duo expand the ethos of both genres, using the fundamental essence of one to challenge and form the other. Their latest single is ‘Cartier’, a downtempo spread that blends dark and sensual R&B with trap beats and contemporary electronica. The track gets into the complexity of situationships; showing it through euphoric moments of intimacy, confession, and sex. But it is underscored by a toxicity, slithering in the background.

The rhythm is slow and continuous. You can tell how at every turn, it is forged with the emotional quotients of the vocals. Each stroke of the autotuned baritones shape the track like a piece of expensive jewel. It is deliberate and vivid. They are the perfect vessel for the lyrical context. It conveys intense passion and tortured melodrama whilst still having a laid back, nonchalant charisma.

Lierda is Adrien Charafeddine (the singer) and Jeil Eid (the composer). And on this track, they work with the productional insights of HVYKAL. Listen Now!

The track is available for streaming on popular sites like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
