German artist Cro, singer of raop, as himself is saying, has released at the beginning of June a Cro music track from the upcoming album, with an official date release for 08.09.2017. Pretty clear, right? Not to me. The album title does not disappoint, being millennial appropriate, cool and rebellious but touched by mannerism. And if I indeed have made you curious, it only means that it’s time to beat the drums and announce the “Fake You” title. You have to love this artist for his style.
For the teaser track called “Baum”, translated tree, Cro has spoiled its fans with lots of dope video effects, compiled into a slightly suggestive music video. The lyrics and the story have raised speculations amongst the fans of the artist. Known to be highly private of his personal life and possessive of his panda mask public persona, Cro seems to have had a change of mind, or at least that’s what the music video would suggest. Or not. The point is, Cro seems to enjoy giving its artistry an intriguing storyline but at the same time, keeping the good vibes.
The artist contributed with soundtrack In Love (feat. Teesy) to the 2016 movie Unsere Zeit Ist Jetzt, in which he played as himself. This new album and recent track “Baum” are the perfect gifts the artist has for 2017 to give to its fans.
UPDATE: Cro seems to have had a change of mind regarding the title of his latest album and changed it from ‘Fake You’ to a more polite sounding “Tru”. No matter the name he chooses, the music he has created is undoubtedly great. So “Tru” it is.
