Genre-defying popstar Remi Wolf has released her first new single of 2023 with “Prescription,” co-produced by Remi Wolf, Solomonophonic, and Knox Fortune.

Two versions of the new song, the result of a phone conversation between Remi and her friend Boots Riley, are out now, including a 7-minute extended edit. Known to many as the frontman for legendary hip-hop act The Coup, Boots also wrote and directed the critically acclaimed film Sorry To Bother You, which premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.

Remi shared, “A few months ago, Boots Riley called me and we spoke about his new tv show I’m a Virgo. 24 hours later–this song was created inspired by that conversation and it is being featured in the tv show out this summer. I loved it so much that I wanted to release it and share it with you all as a special little something.”

Boots further elaborated on the new single when he tweeted, “Remi Wolf did the fastest turn around4a song thats absolutely perfect for the I’m A Virgo scene its in. The song is a future classic. I called her up, talked about the scene, put my phone down. The next time I checked texts, this song, ‘Prescription,’ was there.” I’m a Virgo is a coming of age story about Cootie (Jharrel Jerome), a 13-foot tall young Black man who lives in Oakland, California.

“Prescription” is full of warm synth lines, a shimmering horn section, and acoustic instrumentation all held together by a groovy pop backbeat while Remi reflects on how addicting new love feels. It’s a mature take on the idea of puppy-love in which her voice carries so much emotion and sincerity while blurring the lines between pop, soul, and R&B. A live performance video of the song will also be released on May 17.
