Theophilus London ‘Last Night': ‘LVRS Anthem’ Is a Good Time
New York rapper Theophilus London had kicked off his North American tour in Cleveland Wednesday night (Jan. 11) and to celebrate, he’s dropped his latest single, ‘Last Night (LVRS Anthem).’ The synth-heavy, intricately produced, introspective club banger comes with a rambunctious beat and a catchy chorus: “Sippin’ that good drink in my cup/ Got that purple, roll it up/ See that party from last night, it got me f—ed up.”
That said, the song — the first single off his upcoming ‘Lovers Holiday II: Rose Island’ project — will get you ready for that next one. Listen to him recollect his wild “last night” below.
The Trinidad-bred, Brooklyn-raised entertainer had an exciting 2011, dropping ‘Timez Are Weird These Days’ in July and landing a song on the coveted ‘Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1′ soundtrack. He also had a stroke of bad luck when his computers were stolen from his apartment with “mad naked pictures” of himself and some ladies, which he was “psyched” about possibly being “leaked.”
He’s currently on tour across the U.S. and Canada. Check out his dates below.
