Rising singer-songwriter Lewis Fitzgerald has just released his latest single, ‘Short Ride’ featuring Wewantwraiths, the elusive Midlands rapper. The emotionally charged pop-R&B ballad is the first release from his forthcoming debut EP.
The song draws inspiration from the fleeting nature of life and was inspired by a conversation Lewis overheard between a young woman and her mother while visiting an ill friend in the hospital. Through heartfelt lyrics and melodic vocals, Lewis conveys his experiences of heartbreak, regret, loss, and suicidal thoughts.
Wewantwraiths’ refreshingly vulnerable take adds a new dimension to the track, drawing on his life experiences on the streets and making it ‘out of the hood.’
With millions of views already on TikTok, ‘Short Ride’ looks set to become a hit, and fans can catch Lewis Fitzgerald on his upcoming UK & Ireland tour, including a performance at The Social on April 20th.
