Baltimore’s romantic rap crooner Shordie Shordie returns today with the new single and video “Counter.” The song follows a thrilling run for Shordie, who just completed a sold-out tour as support for OhGeesy from Shoreline Mafia. On top of that, his latest song, “Specific” feat. BLXST has nabbed over 868M streams. “Counter,” like its predecessor, dives into the details of love and lust, showcasing his willingness to leave it all on the line.
“Counter” finds Shordie in his zone, offering his fast-paced signature melodic bars as a way of revealing more about himself and his relationships. The video for “Counter” finds Shordie and his girl in an intimate setting before showing her off at a party with his whole squad. Solo cups and dance moves fill the room an appropriately low-key accompaniment for the track. Mischievous but passionate in a way that Shordie can pull off, “Counter” underscores the charm and personality he’s shown over the last few years.
