The last few weeks have been filled with “1st’s” for Torii Wolf; premiering her debut solo track, “1st,” with Pitchfork, announcing her debut solo album and now–her “1st” video. The Wantagh, NY singer/songwriter will also be the first female artist to have her entire forthcoming debut project (entitled Flow Riiot) produced by legendary DJ/producer, DJ Premier. Ranging from him working with iconic female artists such as Janet Jackson, Macy Gray and Christina Aguilera-Torii being the first to have her entire debut produced by Premier shows that she stands strong in the game. “1st” is a war-torn and wistful ode to unrequited love and commitment that ultimately leaves more questions than answers.
“Making the “1st” video was an incredible experience! The thrill of trying to convey how it feels to fall in and out of love, the push and pull of relationships and see-saw hearts.” Torii stated. “We didn’t have much of a plan which I really liked. We kind of just went for it and I love how it turned out!”
This single is just a glimpse of the musical chemistry and bond that Torii has developed with Premier. Torii and Premier’s collaborative union bum-rushes the walls of genre, age, and expectations to let the world know there’s a Flow Riiot going on. Check out the visual below.
