US R&B NEWCOMER ROTIMI LINKS UP WITH 2009 XXL FRESHMAN MICKEY FACTZ FOR NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO “HELLO”
As Premiered on MTVu
Fast-rising independent singer, songwriter and actor Rotimi unleashes the official video for his brand new single “Hello” which features NYC Hip-Hop artist/producer and 2009’s XXL Freshman Mickey Factz. Taken from his forthcoming mixtape titled While You Wait, which is soon to be released, “Hello” receives its beautifully-shot visual treatment directed by Berman Fenelus and just recently premiered on MTVu.
The song itself – Rotimi’s first piece of music since the release of his critically acclaimed debut mixtape The Resume which was featured on Singer’s Room, MTV Base Africa, VH1 Soul, BET’s 106 & Park and All Hip-Hop amongst others – is a sweet, feel-good record for the ladies especially, which is illustrated in the video with Rotimi daydreaming about a future with a waitress he’s enamored with on first sight. Both R&B and Hip-Hop fans alike should find some appreciation in this new audio/visual experience.
In an industry inundated with artists, emerges the next big fixture in entertainment – singer, songwriter and actor Rotimi. The New Jersey native has achieved national recognition for his powerful vocals and distinctive confidence. With the release of Rotimi’s debut project The Resume creating a viral frenzy, Rotimi has done what few independent artists can only dream. He has captured the hearts of many across the US, been recognized by Hip-Hop mogul and multi-platinum artist Jay-Z as one artist to look out for and has had the privilege of sharing the stage with the likes of T.I, Estelle and N.E.R.D.
As well as performing at the 2010 BET Awards Pre-Party in Los Angeles, his first single in 2010 “Beautiful Music” garnered him international exposure with an Africa Sound City nomination for Video of the Year. His second single, “Already Know” which featured Diddy Dirty Money’s Dawn Richard peaked at #76 on the Media Base radio single chart while his third single “Forever” gained Rotimi daily plays on the likes of MTV Base and VH1 Soul. Slowly but surely becoming recognized as one of the most promising emerging R&B and with the forthcoming release of his While You Wait mixtape, Rotimi is poised to take over – one industry at a time.
