Rising Inland Empire rapper GirlzLuhDev shares his new single “Top Tier.” Released via Capitol Records, the catchy track is accompanied by a slice-of-life video demonstrating the 19-year-old artist’s undeniable charisma.
The Ethan Martinez produced track is built on the melodic West Coast style of past hits like his 2020 breakout “Tooka,” which has amassed over 3.2 million video views. “Top Tier” is set to appear on Dev’s forthcoming project Chilli Mon$taa.
The follow-up to “Kill Time” (an intoxicating banger that premiered in June alongside its DIY-inspired video), “Top Tier” sets Dev’s earworm melodies and one-of-a-kind, twang-like delivery against a smooth backdrop of heavy bass and jackhammer beats.
“Tell me, “Hold on”, don’t move ahead of you (Ahead of you)
Parachutе, why you playin’ dumb, I can’t take care of you (I can’t take carе of you)
I just wanna f**k you in a headstand (In a headstand)
I just wanna f**k you and your best friend (And your best friend)
With me, loose leaf, not no wax pen (No)
With me everything feel like magic (Oh-oh)
With me (Me), better think before your actions
Get your bi**h, you better get her for her password (For her password)
Fly as f**k, pushin’ P, I’m the master (I’m the master)
Right now I’m mad but tomorrow it don’t matter (It won’t matter)
Lil’ cool bitch, you a natural disaster,” GirlzLuhDev (Genius.com)
After immediately commanding attention with the track’s opening lyric (“You scared of heights? Let’s face your fears”), Dev dominates every line with his masterful wordplay and effortless confidence (e.g., “With me everything feel like magic/With me better think before your actions”).
Directed by Shotbylate, the video for “Top Tier” captures Dev in his natural environment and perfectly amplifies the track’s supremely laid-back energy. Whether he’s lingering on the balcony of a city high-rise or holding court at a party, Dev lights up the screen with his mellowed-out and magnetic presence.
