RIP Youth – Pink Lemonade
RIP Youth Close Out a Massive Year with New Single “Pink Lemonade”
Australian born, LA-based RIP Youth – the moniker of hit songwriter/producer James Maas – is closing out a massive 2022 with a new single, “Pink Lemonade”.
The single follows-up RIP Youth’s smash collaboration with world–renowned DJ/Producer, R3HAB and exercise equipment trailblazers, Peloton on “It’s A Vibe (R3HAB Remix) – Peloton Edit”. Released in support of Pride Month, R3HAB’s remix of RIP Youth’s original track was premiered at Peloton New York Studios as part of Cody Rigsby and Peloton’s DJ John Michael’s ‘Pride Live DJ Ride’. With strong radio support globally and nearly 700,000 streams on Spotify the mix has elevated RIP Youth to new heights.
Now RIP Youth has returned to end the year on another high-note with “Pink Lemonade”. Pushing his pop-sensibilities higher than ever before, “Pink Lemonade” shows RIP Youth at their catchiest yet, with bright dance-pop productions and an infectious bass groove powering huge hooks. The track is a sneak-peek at what the songwriter has in the works for 2023 and will be featured on his next project.
“Pink Lemonade is a song about feeling the love you have built for yourself over time, wanting to spread that love around and infect everyone with the mood that you’re in while you constantly practice giving it away so it comes back to you tenfold and keeps us all going” – RIP Youth
