The Brighton rapper’s smash single ‘Oliver Twist’ has spent 4 weeks in the UK ‘Top 10’
18-year-old breakout UK rap talent ArrDee has unveiled his new single ‘Jiggy (Whiz)’, out 29th July.
Underpinned by a cold drill beat, ‘Jiggy (Whiz)’ sees ArrDee shift away from the playful vibes that characterise his recent output, with the Brighton-born artist showing his versatility by delivering darker, hard-hitting vocals to match the production. It’s straight-up party vibes in the accompanying official video, with the cheeky chappie and his contingent rocking up to a mansion party and cranking the energy up a few notches.
It follows on from his acclaimed, 169-produced ‘Daily Duppy’ for GRM Daily, which amassed 1 million YouTube views in 48 hours, and mega-anthem ‘Oliver Twist’, an acclaimed single that spent four weeks in the UK ‘Top 10’, became the highest-selling record by an English artist in its opening week this year, and remains on the Radio 1 A-List.
Prior to that ArrDee appeared on Russ and Tion Wayne’s viral remix of ‘Body’, a track that has hit #1 in the UK Singles chart, amassed over 130 million Spotify streams and over 56 million YouTube views respectively. Meanwhile his recent ‘Plugged In’ session with Fumez the Engineer has racked up over 2 million YouTube hits in less than a month.
ArrDee burst onto the scene with debut single ‘Cheeky Bars’, a track that has already received 4.3 million YouTube streams after being premiered by Mixtape Madness in January. It also picked up organic radio support from Tiffany Calver, DJ Target (BBC 1Xtra), Ricky Melvin and Charlie Hedges (BBC Radio 1) and made its way onto Spotify NMF UK and Rap UK, debuting at #14 in the Viral chart.
Then came ‘6AM In Brighton’, an ode to his hometown that perfectly showcased the 21-year-old’s rapid-fire flow and heart-on-sleeve lyricism, surpassing 2 million YouTube views inside its first month of release.
Continuing his hot streak, ‘Jiggy (Whiz)’ sees ArrDee demonstrate his versatility as an artist.
