RYLLZ Breathes New Life Into His “Nemesis” Classic, Teaming Up With Bella Renee For “Nemesis Pt. II”
When 14-year-old producer RYLLZ created “Nemesis” in his bedroom back in 2018, he definitely couldn’t have predicted its brewing success. Going through multiple cycles of virality on TikTok and Instagram Reels, the hard-hitting trap track has now amassed a combined 1 billion streams and views, propelling RYLLZ into the upper echelon of melodic trap music.
Now, the talented producer is breathing new life into his viral hit with “Nemesis Pt. II,” out now via Lacuna and featuring stunning vocal lines from highly-acclaimed singer and songwriter Bella Renee. Remaking the production around Bella Renee’s singing, RYLLZ is able to craft a captivating and ethereal atmosphere that draws listeners in from the very start. The song’s now-iconic drop, on the other hand, is kept the same, and without a doubt still hits four years later.
“For me, ‘Nemesis’ was my turning point when it happened. It was so absolutely unexpected, but it changed the direction of everything in so so many ways. This track that I made when I was a 14-year-old kid. it's been one of the most impactful things in my life yet, and I'm sure it'll keep that title for a long time to come. I'm eternally grateful for all the support by people over these past 4 years, you guys have made dreams that I didn't even think were logical to think about come to life.”
“I felt like I had to give back in a way, as looking back on it 4 years later there's a lot of things that could be done better from a producer's perspective. So I started rebuilding the instrumental, honoring the original sound, but done the way I'd do it today. I hit up Bella Renee after hearing her on Reaper's "IMY", and she loved the idea!! We got to work together right away, and after countless hours of work, I'm finally happy to present to you, the 2022 version of ‘Nemesis,’” says RYLLZ.
“‘Nemesis’ is the boiling point after a breakup, an anger outburst, and that epiphany that leads to changing completely. There was a lot of organic emotion and energy put into the vocal take and songwriting. This song is supposed to portray the frustration, anger and lack of patience that comes after a breakup.” continues Bella Renee.
