Song by Juice WRLD Produced by Nick Mira Album: JuiceWRLD 9 9 9 Released: 1 July 2017
On “Lucid Dreams,” Juice WRLD explores the mental anguish someone feels after experiencing a break-up.
Lucid dreaming refers to a state of consciousness where a person is aware they are dreaming. With enough experience, a dreamer can slowly begin to control the contents of their dreams. Juice uses the idea of controlling a lucid dream as an analogy for his mental state; to avoid the pain of seeing his ex-lover in his dreams, Juice seeks to replace them—for good.
Frequent Juice WRLD collaborator, Nick Mira handled the production of “Lucid Dreams,” with assistance from SIDEPCE. The melody of this song samples the intro of Sting’s “Shape Of My Heart.”
