The velvety cut is a collaboration with Thundercat and Maeta, out now on Roc Nation.
“I made 'Strawberry Louis Vuitton' while watching one of [Virgil Abloh's] last LV films; the one with Saul Williams,” recalls Mensa. “When I heard the sample it just spoke to me, so I chopped it, made the beat, and wrote the song on the spot. It was really a freestyle. I always imagined Thundercat doing the bridge... we recorded it when he was on tour and I was doing my art show in Chicago. When Virgil passed away, I kind of felt like he had given this song to me; the gift that keeps on giving, in a way.”
In addition to the new song, Mensa will be performing this Wednesday on CBS's The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and he'll be joined by Maeta and Phony Ppl.
