Teenage Toronto artist KILLY has taken off in 2017, and the fuel for his ascent was "Killomonjaro." Released on SoundCloud at the beginning of the year, the melodic, slurred rap song got a video in May which now has over seven millions views. Ohio-born, New York-based producer and rapper 16yrold knows something about putting up big numbers too, first gaining attention with booming, colorful beats on tracks like "Rita Ora."
Since then 16yrold (who is now 18 years old) has produced for the likes of Desiigner, Smokepurpp, and Sahbabii, and this KILLY collaboration makes perfect sense. KILLY floats all over the twinkling piano-based production on "No Romance" and, as with "Killomonjaro," the song almost feels like one big hook. At around two minutes long it's short and to the point, and the video looks as if was a lot of fun to shoot too.
