Shordie Shordie – Leave
Baltimore’s Shordie Shordie is kicking off his year with an emotionally charged, gorgeous new three song-collection titled Me & Mine Pt. II, the sequel to his original fan-favorite Me & Mine set released back in ’19. The new music captures Shordie’s signature lover-boy lightning in a bottle sound and documents his evolution as a songwriter. Along with this latest installment of the series, Shordie releases a music video for “Leave,” which further establishes his magnetic charisma and poise in the spotlight.
Leading off Me & Mine Pt. II is “Mine,” a piano-laden open love-letter and story-driven track that paints a vivid picture of a love that is meant to be. Shordie puts his game down on “Leave,” a plea making his case as the one his lover should stand by despite mistakes they both have made. Capping off the bundle is a smooth burner “Night Time,” driven by a pulsing bassline that Shordie slides on, effortlessly carving out the space to speak his mind in the night hours. The 3-song effort is a complete and well-rounded snapshot of a star in the making.
Me & Mine Pt. II follows Shordie’s track “Counter,” released in December of ’21, and the previously released “Specific” feat. BLXST. In 2020, Shordie released his acclaimed collaboration project with Murda Beatz titled Memory Lane, which raised his profile significantly. He is the only rap artist from Baltimore to have achieved RIAA Double Platinum certification. To date, Shordie Shordie has amassed nearly a billion streams and has been covered by the likes of XXL, Pitchfork, COMPLEX, The FADER, UPROXX, GENIUS, SPIN, and many more.
