The Kid Laroi shared unheard tracks I Don’t Wanna Know and Hurt You via airdrop overnight.

In a true sign of the times, The Kid Laroi has forgone a traditional album rollout by airdropping two unreleased songs to fans at an NYC show. The Australian rapper hosted an intimate pop-up gig in the city overnight, during which he performed a slew of tracks from his 2020 debut mixtape F*ck Love. In addition to that ARIA-nominated project, Laroi also debuted a handful of as-yet unheard cuts, two of which he sent via Bluetooth to concertgoers.

Footage from the show depicts the rapper thanking fans for their attendance, and encouraging those unable to receive the airdropped files to share them amongst each other. Laroi later reveals that the tracks are “two songs I’ve got coming out”, before explaining the reason behind his hi-tech release method. “The reason I did that, I just wanted to say thank you for waiting out here for me,” the rapper said to crowd applause. “Thank you for supporting, thank you for waiting so long.

The two songs have since been shared to social media, clocking in at around one minute each. While their titles haven’t been officially confirmed, fans have preemptively called the tracks I Don’t Wanna Know and Hurt You, both of which are heard as lyrics in each respective snippet. Alongside those tracks, Laroi’s NYC setlist also included his smash hits Without You and STAY, both of which were later remixed with verses by Miley Cryus and Justin Bieber, respectively.

It’s likely that the airdropped songs will comprise part of the tracklist of Laroi’s tentative debut studio album, KIDS ARE GROWING UP.
