Over the last few months, the top European League of Legends competition, the LEC, has released dozens of new content with different creative approaches. We've seen new shows, a clothing line, and most recently, they've started producing music videos.
From their Mediocre Rap Battle to songs based on the competition and its community, their production has managed to attract and surprise fans. Their videos are mostly references and homages to various bands and talent in the music industry.
This time, their latest single, called "Reckless with my Heart", alludes to many of the most famous alternative rock and punk groups of the 2000s, such as My Chemical Romance, Green Day, and Panic! at the Disco.
However, the most interesting thing about this single is not its references, but the story behind it, since "Reckless with my Heart" is all about Martin "Rekkles" Larsson, the Swedish player known for his successful career at Fnatic, and currently part of G2 Esports.
The nearly three-and-a-half-minute song features Andy “Vedius” Day, Daniel Drakos, and Christy “Ender” Frierson, singing about the most difficult moments of Rekkles' career at Fnatic, and showing images of these moments on an old TV.
From Rekkles' low performance during 2018 and the occasion when he was forced to play the infamous composition of Garen and Yuumi, to his departure from Fnatic at the end of last year, and his arrival to the team of Carlos “Ocelote” Rodríguez.
With somewhat deep lyrics and a well-structured melody, all this is serving to promote the first match between both teams since his transfer, which will be played this Saturday, February 6, during the LEC 2021 Spring Season.
