For those of you who may be hearing the name $VN for the first time, now is the time to get familiar with the Toronto-bred rap duo – quickly becoming one of Canada’s best-kept secrets. Self-releasing singles since 2018, the intangible duo return to share the versatile “Took It Too Far”.
On the track, $VN said: “We mainly wanted to capture the fact that we’ve moved on from our naive beginnings in the music industry, and now we’re in our own lane – avoiding distractions and grinding to attain our dreams,” they said. “The outro was added by us late in the production process after we felt like the track needed to end on a fierce and energetic note. We’re thrilled with how it came out and we’re excited for our fans worldwide to vibe with the song!”
$VN have been making waves with their genre-smashing music, from charting on SoundCloud’s “New and Hot Canadian R&B” to airing on Toronto’s Hip-Hop Flow 93.5, to featuring on prominent Spotify and Audiomack playlists.
We can’t wait to see what’s next.
