“They Ain’t Gotta Know” may come off as just another R&B love song, but it’s actually about young adults gaining sexual independence from their seniors, from their religion, and from society altogether. Watch here
Singer, Songwriter, Dancer, RicoDavis has persevered despite hard times. Born and raised in Camden, New Jersey, Rico spent the ﬁrst four years of his life homeless, until his mother was ﬁnally able to obtain employment and home for Rico and his sister. Rico’s source of escape was his love for dancing and singing, for which he was frequently bullied in school. It was not until Rico was accepted into Creative & Performance Arts High School that he received the community support and acceptance. It was during his tenure as a member of their exclusive choir, that they won the esteemed International Days of Coro Competition in Italy, competing against choirs from 30 participating countries.
As a co-‐writer on all of his songs, Rico’s writing process stems from his highs and lows of being an outlier. Having experienced extreme highs of happiness, and yearning for salvation in his lows, his songs take you through the ebb and ﬂows of life’s emotional roller coasters.
Ethos, his upcoming EP, is the manifestation of beliefs and aspirations is how RicoDavis successfully overcame his tumultuous past, and it is with the same perseverance he will achieve greatness in his musical career.
