Brooklyn-based artist Thutmose stands currently as one of the most exciting young faces in the scene in 2019. Since grabbing viral attention in 2017, he has continued to impress, with his subsequent singles over the course of this year and his notable Man On Fire mixtape.
Now he makes big strides into becoming a serious artist with the release of “Ambience”, taken from forthcoming EP Don’t Wake Me.
A rapper by trade whose sound crosses over different genre borders, this new single reflects his eclectic musical palette. A heartfelt serenade to his long-lost love, this sensual, R&B-appearing, midtempo vibe calls on the same infectious use of melodies that puts him on par with some of his more iconic contemporaries like Tory Lanez and Drake.
Sampling Koffee‘s “Raggamuffin” to provide hints of dancehall elements and to bolster the hook, it’s yet another slick, brilliant performance from the young artist. He tops it off with a stunning visual with sweeping scenic views and emotionally intense shots with his lover
Thutmose’s trajectory has been nothing short of astounding. Being tapped to support Billie Eilish on her sold-out debut headline tour plus sync placements in EA Sports and NBA Live, his rise to fame from humble beginnings in Nigeria has been covered by the likes of Billboard to NPR.
With upcoming European shows to come, it’s clear he exudes international appeal and charm. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled on Thutmose as he stands on the precipice of greatness.
