LISTEN: Rising alternative artist KennyHoopla teams up with Jesse Rutherford of The Neighbourhood on reworked single “lost cause//”

KennyHoopla’s collaborative re-imagining of his 2019 single “lost cause//” features a verse from Jesse, or Jesse Rutherford of The Neighbourhood fame, on Oct. 13, 2020.

The single has been featured by Zane Lowe on Beats 1 and features a funky vibe accentuated by a steady, driving bassline and drum beat.

Jesse’s vocals are instantly recognizable and start the track off. With KennyHoopla adding the lyrics “don’t shoot / hands up” to the middle section of the song, “lost cause//” takes on a heavier, more timely meaning. “lost cause//” is the Wisconsin-based artist’s breakout single and has been previously re-worked with a feature from alternative artist Grandson.
