ROCKY DAWUNI New Single “Neva Bow Down” featuring BLVK H3RO

Published

on

unnamed 3 6

Rocky Dawuni, Ghana’s two-time GRAMMYnominated  musician returns with his first new single since his nod for “Best Global Album” for Voice of Bunbon, Vol. 1 at the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards earlier this year. Now Rocky has teamed up with rising Jamaican star Blvk H3ro to release global roots anthem “Neva Bow Down”, available worldwide September 22, 2022 on Aquarian Records.  The powerful new single distills elements of pop, dub, and reggae for a modern take on “rebel music.” Stream “Neva Bow Down” Here

The collaborative spirit of “Neva Bow Down” reconnects Africa and the Afro-Descendant Diaspora, drawing on Jamaica’s powerful culture of resistance. Together, Rocky and Blvk H3ro weave a tapestry of melodies with an unforgettable chorus, laid on top of producer Bob Riddim’s speaker-busting production. This protest anthem is a meditation on the current, dire state of global affairs and our collective power to change the course of history, serving as an inspiration for people to stand up for what is right and true.

 “In a time when our world is at crossroads with systems and society confronting fundamental changes,” Rocky states, “there is a crucial need to speak truth to power, to challenge the status quo and to inspire people to find the courage to create a restorative vision of the future that defends the core essence of who we are as human beings and our interconnectedness to nature.” 

Rocky Dawuni, straddles the boundaries between Africa, the Caribbean and the Americas to create his appealing Afro Roots sound which fuses elements of Reggae, Afrobeat, Highlife and Soul that unites generations and cultures.  Dawuni’s charisma and galvanizing performances have endeared him to crowds around the globe where he has shared the stage alongside luminaries including Stevie Wonder and John Legend, among many others As a dedicated activist, Rocky has been a leading voice for social and environmental transformation and currently serves as UN Goodwill Ambassador for the Environment for Africa. Rocky believes “that music is the medium to strike a chord that transforms our collective intentions into a vehicle for positive social change.”

Blvk H3ro (pronounced Black Hero) is one of Jamaica’s most exciting and original young artists, but he’s far from new to the scene. Over the past half-decade, he’s built an impeccable track record and fervent following with his uplifting and ambitious modern reggae sound, while collaborating with the likes of Bunny Wailer, UB40, Equiknoxx and Skillibeng. Jamaica’s Prime Minister, Andrew Holness, has even sung his praises, commending his song “It Nuh Easy” for its positive influence on Jamaican youth during a recent speech to the nation.

Fireboy DML Tells Apple Music About The Viral Success

Fireboy DML

VIDEO | Fireboy DML Tells Apple Music About The Viral Success of His Song “Peru”, Working with Ed Sheeran and Madonna, and More

Watch: https://music.apple.com/us/post/1645979649

Fireboy DML on the numerous remixes of “Peru,” and working with Ed Sheeran…

It was the Ed Sheeran version first, that’s the one that matters, that’s the first. That’s the one. Everything else was about strategic stuff and all that, but the collaboration was the Ed Sheeran one. My team reached out to me like, “Yo.” Jamal Edwards, rest his soul, very close to Ed Sheeran, played the song to him, sent it to him and he loved the song. He took his stance to write a verse, and then he sent me a DM, and sent me VM of his verse. I’m like, “Yo, Ed Sheeran in this record, this is it.” Ed Sheeran is someone I sonically connect to, I’ve looked up to this man for a long time, for as long as I can remember. He actually made me fall in love with the acoustic guitar, and it really meant a lot to me, not just for me, but for the culture as well, because I knew what it would mean for Afrobeats when the record came out. I’m glad to be at the forefront pushing the culture, pushing the genre, this is a record that will stand the test of time. Years later they’ll say, “Oh, Afrobeats opened up in the United States worldwide, internationally, and Peru by Fireboy is one of those records that made it happen.” I’m just really glad, that’s what we want, to open opportunities and build bridges.

Fireboy DML on how the song “Peru” has nothing to do with the country, and what it’s actually about…

[The word “peru” is] also an allusion to a friend of mine, also an artist, Peruzzi. He has uses this tagline in his songs, so I just use it as… it was like a pun, wordplay kind of thing…I was just really telling the story of a young boy who would find himself in a place that he’s never been before. I recorded that song because it was my first time in the United States and I just got off a writer’s block. I just come back from Miami where I had the most beautiful time at a strip club. I think I was near depressed, and I just got to the United States and I just was like, “Wow.” I just made that song out of that feeling, so I think that’s my most spontaneous song I ever made. It was like a 45-minute freestyle.

Fireboy DML on connecting with Madonna for the remix of her track “Frozen”…

She reached out to me first in 2019 when my first album came out. She was like, “Yo, I love your album, amazing.” “Is this the Madonna? Wow, thank you so much, this means a lot to me,” blah, blah blah, and that was it. Fast forward to 2022, she hit me up on Instagram. “Yo, hey.” I’m like, “Hey, it’s her again, wow!” And she’s like, “I want you to be a part of my classic, one of my classics.” I’m like, “Of course.” Then she sends to me, I’m like, “Of course I know this song!” She was like, yeah, she’s trying to do a remix. I’m like, “Of course, let’s do this,” and then went back and forth on WhatsApp. She’s a perfectionist just like me. Sort of like a control freak in a way too, I like that about her. We went back and forth and did that, and then we linked up to shoot the video. I think the Madonna record and Peru are easily my favorite collaborations, just because of the vibes that was around when we shot the video. Amazing, organic, natural, that is why I never force collaborations, just for moments like that. Some people force collaborations and the video shoot’s always awkward. Nah, nah. It was never like that with Madonna, she’s amazing.

Fireboy DML on why he chose the title ‘Playboy’…

Playboy, because over the years I’ve been a very reclusive superstar. You would never run into Fireboy randomly. I only ever got out the house when I had to leave the house, and back home, that’s not how superstars do. You’re supposed to see superstars everywhere in the club randomly like, “Yo, yo, yo.” I’ve always been a homebody, I’ve always been this reclusive, chill person. But I decided that I needed to come out of my shell and actually face the reality that is my life right now. I’m a superstar, I need to enjoy my superstardom. I need to embrace the reality that is my life right now. That’s what it’s about, I’m coming out to play, Playboy.

Fireboy DML on performing at Wembley Arena later this year…

It’s a really big deal. It was a ballsy move for me to be honest. But I just thought, “It’s now or never, man. Just do it.” …the tickets are selling out fast. I’m not sold out yet, but it’s been positive.

Fireboy DML on working with Rema on “Compromise,” and having more collabs ready to drop…

Myself and Rema are like the two leading artists of our generation, without a doubt. We came together and realized that, “Yo, instead of giving these fans what they want, which is beef, let’s collaborate.” We don’t want to repeat any mistakes from the past, we just want to make money. the fans are still doing their stuff, they’re relentless, but we will continue to show love because that’s the only way. We are too advanced for this stuff, so we came together and we want to really give them the obvious club banger that they want. We will come together and make proper, proper music, and that’s what we did. We have other songs that are immediate club bangers, but they did not fit into the vision that I had for this album. There’s like five more records, like five more Fireboy DML and Rema records. I don’t know about this year, but I’ll be getting it, definitely.
