WRAWKSTAR had a pretty solid trajectory with releasing his music this year. His first four songs alone generated over a hundred thousand views on YouTube, along with almost 50 thousand streams on Spotify.
Then he dropped Let’s Be Great. The self-produced track has gotten more attention than all of his previous releases combined, but not for the reasons he had hoped:
-Authority Daily’s Tim Carlson launched nothing short of a hit-piece with his article “WRAWKSTAR Drops The Worst Song Of All Time”.
-Countless users on Twitter have been voicing their disdain for the new release:
This buzz piqued our interest, and we reached out to the young artist with some questions:
Are you surprised at all the hate you’ve been getting?
WRAWKSTAR: Honestly, yes. Up until this point it was all love, I knew I’d eventually get some haters but not like this. I’ll take it though.
What was the rationale behind releasing “Let’s Be Great”?
WRAWKSTAR: I just felt like it. I made that song in my bedroom years ago under some very interesting circumstances. It had to come out. I knew it may not appeal to my core fan base as much as my previous work but I didn’t think people would go out of their way to hate on the song. People are literally DMing me to tell me how much they think the song sucks. I’m getting a lot of love from the fans at the same time though.
Does this change how you feel about releasing new music that may be considered extremely experimental?
WRAWKSTAR: Not at all. This is part of the game. When you do something no one has ever done before, there’s going to be an adjustment period. This track will be a classic in a few years.
