Juice WRLD Is Haunted By Addiction In The "Lean With Me" Video
The video shows the darkest side of recreational drug use.
Juice WRLD has shared the video for “Lean With Me,” a conflicted song off of his debut album Goodbye & Good Riddance. The song documents a dependency on drugs, as the Chicago rapper acknowledges the dangers of substance abuse but can’t seem to keep himself away from the habit. “I know I’m not right But I’m not wrong, no, I’m not wrong / Girl, you hate it when I’m too high / But that’s where I belong, where I belong,” he sings. The video begins with Juice WRLD attending a group for recovering addicts, but quickly the setting fades away and replaced with fever dreams of pill-popping and crime scenes. Halfway through the clip, he makes a 911 call: “I think my girlfriend overdosed… she’s not breathing.”
“Lean Wit Me” is the third single from Goodbye & Good Riddance. The video release follows the success of “Lucid Dreams,” which peaked at No. 3 on the Hot 100 and is currently at No. 8. Meanwhile, the rapper has two other songs on the chart: “All Girls Are The Same” at 41 and “Wasted” with Lil Uzi Vert at 67.
Goodbye & Good Riddance is available to stream across all platforms.
