Fresh off his first appearance in the Billboard Hot 100 top ten, rising artist SAINt JHN has capped off the week with the release of a new remix of "Trap."
With fresh production from Rompasso and a new verse from JHN, the bouncy remix just dropped with a fresh visual. Built using tour footage while also reflecting on some of the biggest moments of his last year, which has seen him only continue to gain momentum. The original version of track is less dance oriented and features a verse from Lil Baby, but the new remix is all about the production and JHN.
The remix arrives just after JHN shared an open letter as protests against police brutality and systemic racism continue across the country. The heartfelt letter sees him address the "real superheroes" of the world. "In our neighborhoods the real superheroes don't have super powers," he wrote. "Our superheroes can't fly, our super heroes aren't invisible and definitely can't stop bullets. Our superheroes were real people raising their kids in forgotten neighborhoods, the were single parents working double shifts, late on rent every month, they were the parents on their last dollar still making Christmas miracles, you know, this is America."
To coincide with the release of the letter, he dropped a T-shirt with 100 percent of the proceeds going towards the Equal Justice Initiative, a non-profit focused on ending mass incarceration and tackling racial injustice. This isn't the only charitable action he's made recently as he chose to cancel the video shoot for "Roses" featuring Future.
"I was gonna shoot a video for the remix to 'Roses' that me and Future just did, we were literally gonna shoot it in the next 2 days," he revealed on Instagram earlier this month. "I just got off the phone with LA Reid, I asked him to bump the budget from 60k to 100k, then I asked him to give me the video budget and don't ask what I'm gonna do with it. He agreed." He then donated the budget of $100,000 plus $25k of his own money to various bail funds and black owned businesses.
