Rising pop star Blu DeTiger and acclaimed singer-songwriter Biig Piig have teamed up for the sizzling new single “Crash Course,” out now via Capitol Records.
Trading off on vocals, they exude cool confidence as they defy pursuit, taunting, “catch me if you can.” The track is fueled by a driving beat, electronic effects, and a mesmerizing bass line from Blu, who produced along with Oscar Scheller (Ashnikko, Brooke Candy). Blu and Biig Piig wrote the song with Scheller and Rex Detiger.
Blu and Biig Piig navigate the course at a go-kart track in the video for “Crash Course,” which also premiered today. Directed by Jeremy Reynoso (Claud, Skullcrusher) and produced by Travis Bailey, the dizzying, adrenaline-spiking clip matches the glitchy pulse of the song as the two artists revel in the fun and the sun.
“‘Crash Course’ is collection of New York sounds spun around and spit out onto an L.A. racetrack,” explains Blu DeTiger. “It’s dirty bass, high energy, fun. We had the best time making this and I think that comes through when you listen to it. I’ve been a big fan of Biig Piig for a while, she has a really unique voice and sound. It was really cool to collaborate with her on this.”
Biig Piig adds, “Making the track in L.A. with Blu, Rex and Oscar was so fun, it all flowed so great in the studio and the drums and bass line just set me off – I feel like we tapped into this divine feminine energy, and when the lyrics and melodies came I pictured us driving fast down a highway, GTA style blaring the speakers.”
Back in April, Blu shared another new track, “Hot Crush Lover,” an energetic and irresistible pop song, produced by John Hill (Rihanna, Charli XCX). The track was DeTiger’s first release of 2022, and one of her first singles since signing to Capitol Records, “Hot Crush Lover” served as an enticing follow-up to her 2021 debut EP, How Did We Get Here?, which amassed over 90 million streams.
