Building her reputation as one of the UK’s most exciting breakout names following a slew of recent heat including her first Million-streaming track “Something New” ft. Hardy Caprio, a cameo appearance in the “Shine Girl” video with MoStack, Stormzy and Maya Jama and her own sold-out debut London headline show, rising UK R&B star Dolapo now releases her debut EP “A Short Love Story”.
Earning her stripes as a backing vocalist for the likes of Tion Wayne and Young T and Bugsey before coming through as a solo artist in her own right, Dolapo’s critically-acclaimed releases “Blink of An Eye”, “Down” ft. WSTRN’s Louis Rei alongside a standout feature on Mostack’s Official #3 album “Stacko” with “Make Me Fall in Love and You Can Keep Me Forever” (which she co-wrote), Dolapo has consolidated an increasingly influential presence on the UK scene across 2019. With this debut EP containing 3 previously unreleased tracks “I Swear”, “Changes” and “Parachute”, Dolapo’s throwback R&B stylings – heavy on the bassline and melody – forms a coherent, stylish project that will be sure to continue the interest in the young star.
With support already strong from across the tastemaker spectrum – COMPLEX, HUNGER, NOTION WONDERLAND, VIPER, TRENCH MAGAZINE as well as BBC R1Xtra – with this new body of work, Dolapo cements herself as a talented, R&B classicist who’s showing that she can deliver already – a very exciting prospect.
