New Music Video: Pain Killer – Torii Wolf

Premiered on Billboard, TORII WOLF‘s video for, latest single ‘Pain Killer’ documents the past struggles she has endured.

Produced by OVO’s Mike Zombie (of Drake’s ‘Started From The Bottom’ & DJ Khaled’s ‘They Don’t Love You No More’ featuring Jay-Z, French Montana, Meek Mill & Rick Ross fame), ‘Pain Killer’ is the audio equivalent of an opioid, replete with Torii’s pleas to euthanize her anguish, yet so ultimately stimulating it creates a high you can’t stop craving.

Speaking of her  latest single, Torii explains: “If anyone has ever had any substance abuse problems, or has used in the past at all, you feel this feeling of needing something. This dependency on getting high and these drugs, so to speak, are what we need so badly; end up turning on us,” Torii commented to Billboard. “They don’t care about us is what it feels like, you use them too much, it ends up biting you and hurting you either way. You need to get high and the only thing that can get you high is that drug and sometimes you’re high and it still doesn’t feel good anymore. And the same thing with a person–some relationships feel that way.

‘Pain Killer’ is from her solo debut EP ‘Flow Riiot’, released via DJ Premier’s TTT (To The Top) imprint. The 15 track collection is now out on all digital platforms.

But for now, it’s time to check out the video…
