After collaborating on the “All Girls Are The Same” video back in February, the two Illinois natives connect again for a “Lucid Dreams” video. The song’s heartbroken lyrics are paired with surreal visuals that head in dark directions, but the whole thing is grounded and made accessible by Juice’s natural pop sensibilities.

Two weeks ago we heard the up-and-comer had signed a $3 million deal with Interscope—which would explain the Uzi collab. Essentially, this dude is blowing up, and Uzi jumping on a “Lucid Dreams” remix is only going to add fuel to the fire.

As we noted in February, his brutally honest lyrics and punk rock leanings make him a perfect star for an era where Lil Uzi Vert and Young Thug are rap royalty. His tracks like “Lucid Dreams” and “Sticks & Stones” are visceral, unflinching portrayals of his battles with drugs and heartbreak that showcase both pain and songwriting skills well beyond his 19 years.

On his musical style, Juice WRLD spoke to Pigeons & Planes in April about his different inspirations: “I like all types of music. It could change up so quickly, I could be listening to Foo Fighters and then switch up and turn on my favorite Sosa mixtape. I listen to all types of music. My biggest influences are Kid Cudi, Chief Keef, Travis Scott—it’s a lot of them, bro. Eminem, I was a big Odd Future fan back in 2011. Super fan.”

[Intro]
Nick Mira on the mix
No, no, no, no
No no no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no (no)
No, no, no

[Chorus]
I still see your shadows in my room
Can’t take back the love that I gave you
It’s to the point where I love and I hate you
And I cannot change you, so I must replace you, oh
Easier said than done
I thought you were the one
Listenin’ to my heart instead of my head
You found another one
But I am the better one
I won’t let you forget me
I still see your shadows in my room
Can’t take back the love that I gave you
It’s to the point where I love and I hate you
And I cannot change you, so I must replace you, oh
Easier said than done
I thought you were the one
Listenin’ to my heart instead of my head
You found another one
But I am the better one
I won’t let you forget me

[Verse]
You left me falling and landing inside my grave
I know that you want me dead
I take prescriptions to make me feel a-okay
I know it’s all in my head
I have these lucid dreams where I can’t move a thing
Thinking of you in my bed
You were my everything
Thoughts of a wedding ring
Now I’m just better off dead
I’ll do it over again
I didn’t want it to end
I watch it blow in the wind
I should’ve listened to my friends
Did this shit in the past
But I want it to last
You were made outta plastic, fake
I was tangled up in your drastic ways
Who knew evil girls had the prettiest face?
You gave me a heart that was full of mistakes
I gave you my heart and you made heart break

[Bridge]
You made my heart break
You made my heart ache (I still see your shadows in my room)
You made my heart break
You made my heart ache (can’t take back the love that I gave you)
You made my heart break (were made outta plastic, fake)
You made my heart ache (I still see your shadows in my room)
You made my heart break again (I was tangled up your drastic ways)
Who knew evil girls had the prettiest face?

[Chorus]
I still see your shadows in my room
Can’t take back the love that I gave you
It’s to the point where I love and I hate you
And I cannot change you, so I must replace you, oh
Easier said than done
I thought you were the one
Listenin’ to my heart instead of my head
You found another one
But I am the better one
I won’t let you forget me
I still see your shadows in my room
Can’t take back the love that I gave you
It’s to the point where I love and I hate you
And I cannot change you, so I must replace you, oh
Easier said than done
I thought you were the one
Listenin’ to my heart instead of my head
You found another one
But I am the better one
I won’t let you forget me

[Outro]
Did this shit in the past but I want it to last
You were made outta plastic, fake
I was tangled up in your drastic ways
Who knew evil girls had the prettiest face?
Easier said than done
I thought you were…
…instead of my head
You found another…
…better one
I won’t let you forget me

Since he signed, Juice WRLD has released a Cole Bennett-directed video for “Lucid Dreams” and finally put two of his songs on streaming services, but there was no new music until today. “Lean Wit Me” is another catchy song from the young artist who also announced his upcoming project, Goodbye Good Riddance, is on the way.
