Kari Faux has teamed up with Big KRIT for a new song titled “Turnin’ Heads”. It’s her second single of the year, following January’s “Me First.” “Turnin’ Heads” pays homage to the southern rapping of Faux’s childhood in Little Rock, Arkansas. Listen below.
“This song is a time machine that takes me growing up and living in the South,” Faux explained in a statement. “Just getting paid, going to town and seeing cars with candy paint and big wheels and aspiring to have that day for myself. It was an honor to have Big KRIT as a collaborator because he was one of the rappers that inspired me and made me proud to be country.”
