22-year-old rising hip-hop/R&B star from Burnaby, British Columbia – officially releases his new single “IDK” today. This is the second single to release from the Filipino-Canadian artist via Universal Music Canada,
Making waves with his first single “Ice Spice” and earning a spot as one of Spotify’s top 50 Canadian artists to watch on their RADAR Canada playlist, PARIS. continues his momentum with the new single “IDK.” The rising artist serenades a prospective partner with contemplative lyrics over a smooth beat, singing, “What would I do without you?” before getting into all that he finds intriguing about her in the catchy chorus. “Is it her lips or hips, or ‘cause she got a gangster vibe? I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know.”
The song, co-written and produced by QESTN, speaks directly to the chase of early love. “IDK” explores this topic by describing a lustful and confusing relationship between two people. PARIS. speaks on wanting the it girl and how he is in a constant chase with her. He can’t come to a solid conclusion as to why he’s chasing her, which leaves him in a cycle of lust. “This is the girl that everybody wants and knows, but not everyone can get,” adds PARIS.
Synergizing R&B and Hip-Hop in his own charismatic way, PARIS. has always been drawn to the impulse of trying new things. “I don’t worry too much about the future, I’m always ready to go,” he says on his quick-minded approach to music and life. From spending his childhood moving in-and-out of various impoverished spaces in Canada, to grounding himself through the discovery of music, basketball, and his eventual BC-based community, PARIS. has always been drivenby the idea of moving forward regardless of the circumstances at hand.
A current star on the rise with upcoming single “IDK” set to be released on October 19, PARIS. continues to garner media and audience-related hype across the country. Being recently featured in Canadian outlet 6ixBuzzTV, alongside performing at venues like the Safe and Sound Festival, watch for more as he continues to establish himself as one of 2023’s up and coming artists.
