TOURE Brings His Worldly Vision to Life in “Wild Wild West”


West Philly’s own TOURE is painting vivid pictures with his latest single, “Wild Wild West,” a standout track from his dynamic fourth studio album, “Sunday Dinner On a Monday.” TOURE, who first caught the public’s eye with his Mercury Prize-winning debut, “Speech Therapy,” is capturing hearts and minds again.

“Wild Wild West,” filmed across Europe’s picturesque landscapes, is a visual and lyrical exploration of TOURE’s journey. His lyrics, deep and introspective, speak volumes of his growth as an artist. Sampling Kehlani’s hit “Nights Like This,” the track’s somber snare production lays the perfect foundation for TOURE’s reflective and candid lyricism.

With over 2M streams across all platforms in less than a month, TOURE’s “Life of the Party” EP is a testament to his unstoppable momentum. His unique sound and magnetic presence continue to solidify his place in the industry, as evidenced by his recent Footlocker and Nike’s 50 Years of HipHop Philadelphia campaign feature.

After a brief hiatus exploring other passions, including a stint as a semi-finalist on Celebrity MasterChef, TOURE has returned to music with a renewed focus. His podcast, “The Work Brunch,” has seen him cooking food and conversing with industry greats like Lianne La Havas and Shabaka Hutchings. His innovative approach to music and food was showcased in his third album, “Tantil Before I Breathe,” where each song was paired with an inspired recipe.
