Rotimi recently released the video for his single “Love Riddim” off his new EP, Walk With Me that drops this Friday. Everyone knows Rotimi from his bad boy role on the hit show Power but with his angelic voice it makes you forget all about how much we hate his character on the show. Rotimi has released four digital music projects so far, The Resume, While You Wait, Royal Wednesday and Summer Bangerz. “Love Riddim” is the perfect song with island vibes you’ll need to kick off the summer. The track has a very infectious Caribbean sounding vibe to it that makes you want to dance or how they say in the dance hall culture Jamaican whine. According to Rotimi, this is exactly the vibe he was going for stating that “I wanted to make feel good music and let people say whatever they wanted to say about it. I just wanted something that’s so timeless that even in the winter, if you played it in the winter time, you’re going to envision yourself on a beach. It takes you out of yourself. It’s perfect for the summer.” The video also features some cameos from Apryl Jones, Seraph and Michael Blackson.
In an Instagram post earlier this month, Rotimi stated that he had been doing some self-reflection over the past few months and with this new album he will be releasing Friday, he considers the 7 songs the first phase of his self-discovery.
Rotimi’s new EP will be out Friday, May 24 and is available for pre-order now.
