Having achieved cult status through features on the likes of Tion Wayne’s ‘Home’, rising R&B star Dolapo is striking out on her own with ‘Blink of an Eye’, a quietly glossy study on the fantasy of falling in love. Watch here
Earning her stripes singing backing and co-writing for some of the most exciting artists in the scene right now: MoStack, Tion Wayne, ZieZie and Young T & Bugsey to name a few, rising R&B star Dolapo is striking out on her own with a polished and slow-burning new joint.
Swedish/Stockholm-based producer Anton Hård’s bold production perfectly complements Dolapo’s superb vocal performance, and the vivid nature and delivery of her lyrics, juxtaposed with an unusually hard bassline is sure to generate intrigue.
The producers wanting to work with her are also significant given her emerging status: the likes of Team Salut (Mr. Eazi, Yxng Bane), JD Reid (Mabel, Kojo Funds), Prgrshn (Wstrn, Wretch 32), JRocs (EO) and Levi Lennox (Zayn) are all involved, pointing to highly-anticipated collaborations in the near future with an artist truly making waves on the underground.
With a seamless amalgam of pure vocal talent and style, Dolapo’s emergence onto the scene is a bold one and the young artist already seems destined for very big things this year.
