A one-man army who immensely influenced the sound of recent rap music, Pi’erre Bourne sounds best when populating his immersive sonic universe with his own inventive flexes. Today, the superstar rapper/producer announces Good Movie, his next album, coming very soon via SossHouse/Interscope Records.
Giving fans the first glimpse of the upcoming album, the SossHouse CEO shares “Good Movie,” the project’s exuberant and colorful title track. Floating over ambient keys, Bourne serves up a barrage of free-associative flexes that evoke the lifestyle of a Hollywood high-roller: “My life’s like a movie, yeah, yeah,” he raps. “She is so into me, yeah, yeah/I gave her my room key, yeah, yeah/Take the elevator to me, yeah, yeah.” Simple, emphatic, and teeming with hooks, “Good Movie” arrives shortly after Bourne announced the Good Movie Tour, a trek that will see him travel everywhere from Houston to London. “Good Movie” is available now at all digital retailers.
The tour announcement follows the release of Pi’erre’s latest collaborative project with legendary artist Juicy J titled, Space Age Pimpin. In 2021, he released Yo!88, a joint project from the Grammy® winner and fellow production legend TM88. On tracks like “Block Boy,” their fusion is rendered to its fullest effect as Bourne provides the infectious song structure, and TM88 laces him with video game synths that make a big balling sound like an adventure. Pi’erre Bourne has established himself as one of rap’s most inventive producers, and he flashed his behind-the-boards prowess once again with his production on EA Monster, the critically acclaimed new album by Young Nudy, including highlights “Kit Kat” and “No Chaser.”
As well as crafting beats for the likes of Playboi Carti, Lil Uzi Vert, and more, he also dropped acclaimed solo projects The Life of Pi’erre 4 and The Life of Pi’erre 5. In addition to releasing music, Pi’erre is the founder and CEO of his own SossHouse imprint – home to artists like Chavo and Sharc. With the Good Movie Tour set to begin next month, fans can get an up-close-and-personal glimpse of Pi’erre Bourne as he continues to level up.
