Rapper The Kid Laroi has announced that he is ready to drop a new song on Monday, December 7. The track, titled 'Reminds Me Of You', is a cover of Kim Petra's 'Reminds Me' that will feature Laroi's mentor and friend, late rapper Juice Wrld.

Laroi took to his social media to make the announcement. “Reminds Me Of You” tonight with my brother @JuiceWorlddd," he wrote on Twitter, adding, "Big thank you to @kimpetras for allowing us to remake & share our version of her song with the world." Over on Instagram, the rapper shared the song's cover art which featured an anime-designed Laroi and Juice Wrld in front of a cherry blossom tree. Along with the cover, Laroi shared a personal message on Juice Wrld, writing, "tonight. ❤️ thank u for everything bro. without you there would be no me. I love and miss u unconditionally. @juicewrld999."

Although the song may have come with good intent, it has stirred a debate on Twitter. Fans have mixed reception about the song over its Juice Wrld feature. "Y’all really made a laroi cover of a song and put a 30 second Juice verse for his 1 year death anniversary f**k the label," said a fan.



 


One fan wrote, "nah bro its leaked, also juice carried hard, sheesh bro it would've been better off as a juice solo," to which another replied, "Nah I disagree. Laroi is the one with real talent, juice found one beat that people liked stuck to it with each song, just making minor changes and called it an album."



 

 



 

 

One fan said, "y’all mfs are ungrateful. Laroi is a very talented artist and this ain’t his fault that the label put him on the track. be thankful your even getting new juice," and another replied, "Wow I’m so grateful for a 30 second feature on his 1 year anniversary and an album that was full of leaks, sick."



 

 



 

 

"I’m not mad at laroi I’m just mad at whoever’s makin these decisions cause juices 1 year death anniversary shouldn’t be a song where it’s basically larois song with a 30 sec juice verse that doesn’t have a lot of quality. And laroi is one of my favorite artist rn," added another fan.



 


We have to agree with the sentiment of one of the aforementioned fans. Music is art and there are times where less is more, meaning that even if Juice features only for 30 seconds, we can't forget that those 30 seconds still carry weight. If you discard that, you essentially let Juice Wrld's verse lose its due power. It may not be the case if it were 10 seconds, understandably, but for at least half a minute, we are hearing new lines being expressed from a beloved artist who has passed away, whereas we may never have heard them before.
