Juice WRLD fans have been gifted several singles like “In My Head” and “Bye Bye” with Marshmello this year.
Out via Grade A and Interscope Records, a music video for a brand new track titled “Face 2 Face” has been unveiled. The cinematic visual was directed by Steve Cannon and is an artistic interpretation of what sleep paralysis feels like. The track hears Juice reflect on his struggles with anxiety and depression, a recurring topic throughout his discography.
“Every time I go to fall asleep, these demons haunting me/ Face my fears, face to face as we meet, evil is grabbing me/ Losing my gravity, my mind’s a bloody scene, detached from reality (Reality)/ I won’t, I don’t wanna, I don’t want, no, I don’t wanna implode, I won’t, I don’t wanna, it’s the end of the summer, it’s starting to get cold/ If I knew all along the Midas touch, would expose all my wrongs, turn ’em to gold”
The accompanying music video depicts a woman suffering from sleep paralysis as demons run rampant around her room.
At the end of the clip, a definition of sleep paralysis flashes across the screen to provide more context. “A temporary inability to move or speak while falling asleep. Individuals remain aware during these episodes, which involve troubling hallucinations and a sensation of suffocation,” it reads.
“Face 2 Face” is the second posthumous single from the rapper, following last month’s “In My Head.”
