There’s a new wave rising in North America and its called “ItsDopey”.
With summer on the horizon, the release schedule is starting to heat up as artistes look to drop their soundtrack to the season. Several artistes have released singles, EPs and albums but one artiste stands out, his name is ItsDopey.
The ability to see an artiste develop and flourish, then fulfill their potential is a beautiful thing.
ItsDopey has experienced an incredible rise to prominence in a very short space of time in the American music scene, and with his name ringing off in all the right circles. It’s been a while since we have seen such an organic climb by a new artiste. However, ItsDopey seems to be taking it all in his stride, refusing to go down the chart.
Naturally gifted and hardworking, ItsDopey stands out from the pack thanks to a dynamic upper register. Given time for his wordplay and storytelling to take another leap forward, he could very well be the next powerhouse in Africa and the America music scene.
With standout tracks like “Asanma” and “Iye (Don’t Know)” and “My Platoon”, which has recently caused a surge in popularity on social media and the radiosphere.
With the global new direction of mainstream of Afrobeats in America, and the increasing visibility of narratives from across the black diaspora, ItsDopey hope to take his music to the four corners of the world.
