Midwest rapper Rated-R Playboy channels a sultry romance on latest release, “Karma Ain’t Real, Things Just Happen.” The track’s visual follows the rapper on a dimly lit date night alongside his female lead. Each scene has a dark hue of purples and reds that adds to its sensual undertone.
“Karma Ain’t Real, Things Just Happen” has a smooth and soulful R&B beat. The rapper’s verses are quick and calculated with a mellow build-up. He looks into his date’s eyes as he raps, “Hella toxic I got nasty habits, fell in love in sixty seconds look how fast it happened.” He toggles between a fast delivery and a slow vocalized chorus. The beat peeks through the verses with subtle synths, snares, and keys reminiscent of a classic 70’s love ballad.
The Wisconsin-based artist has cultivated a significant following on social media and a fanbase of loyal listeners. His Instagram comment section has become flooded with fire emoji symbols after announcing the video’s release. With the support of his followers and more new music on the way, Rated-R Playboy is on his way to becoming a mainstream success.
