Rotimi


Boasting cosigns from 50 Cent, JAY-Z, Jamie Foxx, and T.I., singer and actor Rotimi wasn’t exactly a nobody when he landed his first breakthrough single. 2017’s “Want More,” featuring dancehall artist Kranium, brought in over 40M streams and spoke to the artist’s singing career that was decades in the making. While he was then best known for his acting role on STARZ series Power, Rotimi assured fans that his repertoire stretched far beyond his on screen character. Infusing contemporary R&B with traditional Afrobeat and dancehall, Rotimi introduced his own smooth sound of global influences. A New Jersey native of Nigerian descent, Rotimi inherited an eclectic musical palette with the likes of Fela Kuti, Bob Marley, and Ms. Lauryn Hill always in rotation. In 2015, he signed with 50 Cent’s G-Unit Records, which would prepare him for the inevitable success of his charting 2017 debut EP, Jeep Music, Vol. 1. Featuring guest verses from 50 Cent and T.I. as well as his breakthrough single “Want More,” the project cemented Rotimi as a strong vocalist and songwriter with a knack for sultry slow jams. Inking a deal with EMPIRE to put out his May 2019 EP, Walk With Me, Rotimi is proud of the time he’s put in. “I want my fans to understand that this is something unique,” he says. While the sun-tinged lead single “Love Riddim” epitomizes a summer anthem, Walk With Me is a dynamic, genre -spanning project. “It covers all aspects of emotions.”
