Rising UK R&B star Dolapo marks her first release of 2021 with the hypnotic ‘Interest’, featuring one of the hottest female rappers in the UK right now in Ms. Banks and Nigerian rising star Oxlade.
Bringing an intoxicatingly Afrocentric flavour to the UK realness in her new release, Dolapo continues to showcase the natural vocal ability and charmisma that has brought critical acclaim across the likes of NOTION, TRENCH and RED BULL. The Capone-directed visuals coming through as a cascade of cultural heat, Nollywood and Afro-futurism, Dolapo sets a new bar for 2021.
Speaking on the track, Dolapo states:
“Interest is a song for the Ladies, the IT girls. We know what we bring to the table and the ball is forever in our court. We’re only giving time & energy to a guy if he can match that. Until then, it’s all just fun & games.”
With influences ranging from Fela Kuti to Lagbaja, Wizkid and Tiwa Savage, Dolapo has built her own reputation as one of the city’s mosts exciting breakout names since her standout hit “Something New” ft. Hardy Caprio (4M+ streams) started making waves. With over 12M+ streams globally off the back of her critically-acclaimed debut EP “A Short Love Story”, this new release is a timely dose of the rising star’s increasingly influential presence on the UK scene.
‘Interest’ is available now via all major platforms.
