Russ Gets John Mayer to Play Guitar on New Song “Wife You Up”


Russ is back with a new record, this time he sings about the love of his life for “Wife You Up.” Over Scott Storch production and strings by John Mayer, Russ bares his heart as he sings about the apple of his eye. “Baby you’re a one of one to me/I know that I should probably wife you/And baby i swear I’m done with these/Other women they don’t mean shit to me,” he croons on the hook.

For the second half of the record, russ drops bars. “You the only girl I’ll call back/I tell these other women fall back/They be hating on the preview/They think that it’s only for the entertainment/Like E News/I can see the sequel/Let’s do more I do’s and less re-do’s,” he raps.

The Atlanta native is one of the most talented young stars in hip-hop right now. He continually drops quality music, most of the time for free on his Soundcloud. In the span of just a few days, Russ has released “Think Twice,” “Prosper,” “Maybe” and now he’s shares
“Wife You Up.” This is the fourth straight record he dropped that is produced by Storch.

Putting controversy aside, Russ is consistently good. If you haven’t, check out his There’s Really a Wolf album and bump “Wife You Up” below.
