Toronto-based rapper, producer, writer and poet Cadence Weapon shared “SENNA,” the first single off his new LP Parallel World (eOne Music), which is set for release on April 30th.
“SENNA” is about self-determination and taking the road less traveled, and is a reunion collaboration with Jacques Greene (LuckyMe/Night Slugs/Vase Records) following their work together on the self-titled Cadence Weapon (2018). The new music video was created thanks to the generous support of the MVP Project, a joint initiative of RBCxMusic and the Prism Prize (administered by the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television).
“‘SENNA’ is inspired by legendary Brazillian F1 driver Ayrton Senna. The documentary about him from 2010 has floated in the periphery of my mind ever since I first saw it,” Cadence describes. “Musically, it shares the spirit of early UK grime but what we ended up creating feels completely new. When Jacques Greene and I were in the studio working on this track and I heard the beat he was making, Senna started floating around my head like a mantra.”
