The Kid Laroi finally releases his debut studio album

The Kid Laroi‘s debut studio album, The First Time, portrays the 20-year-old Australian rapper-singer with a scowl on his face. The 20 songs that make up “The First Time” showcase musical maturation. Standout tracks, such as “Where Do You Sleep?” and “Deserve You,” may not necessarily be groundbreaking but build on his fanbase. “F*ck Love,” heartbreak remains the central theme in Laroi’s songwriting, where he depicts himself as either a profoundly wounded victim or a toxic individual. On “Tear Me Apart,” he delivers clichéd lines about how, despite his own faults, he should still be unconditionally forgiven for his past behavior.
