Kid Riz shares emotive new release 'Bad Boys Cry'

Not afraid to show a softer side to his demeanor, Montreal’s Kid Riz shares ‘Bad Boys Cry’, an intimate tale of male emotional fragility that is beautifully sincere.



Working alongside prestigious producers Baby Got Beatz and Made By Blackburn, the track adopts a dainty acoustic riff that allows his striking vocals to take centre stage. Surrendering his signature R&B and hip-hop meets Latin sound for something that displays his diverse array of talent, he has struck gold with ‘Bad Boys Cry’, and spreads an important message to his ever-growing fanbase that it is okay to express yourself, describing it as Ed Sheeran meets Kid Laroi, a ballad for the Gen Z”.


Born into a family of musicians, Kid Riz was always destined to follow suit. Discovering a love for Bruno Mars, Kanye West and Drake at the age of 14, he explored his style and honed his craft, taking a break between high school and college to focus on making his passion a full time career. A fiercely determined musician, he has already begun to establish himself as a one to watch, having racked up support slots for the likes of Rich Da Kid and Flip Dinero, as well as a slot at Montreal’s biggest hip-hop festival Metro Metro.


Bursting with creativity and attitude, Kid Riz is a name you can expect to see everywhere this year.
