Stefflon Don is heading to New Zealand over New Years for Northern Bass, but who is she and why should you see her live?
Following in the footsteps of modern female rappers such as Nicki Minaj, Cardi B and Lil Kim, Stefflon Don has caused massive waves throughout the music industry with her explosive verses. None other than Drake has mentored Don in the past, which will have no doubt had a massive influence on her lyrical, and performance, styles when it comes to this side of her sound. It doesn’t get much bigger than that, but she’s still managed to keep her Jamaican roots through her vocal style, setting her apart from the rest.
You might not expect it when listening to her more aggressive rap style on tracks like Real Ting, but Stefflon Don has a singing voice with the ability to match her rapping abilities. Her track, Senseless, which has over 10 million view on YouTube, shows off the two things in perfect harmony, switching between her soulful tones and harsh rhymes.
Don’s early career saw her collaborate with huge artists such as Halsey, Jeremih and Demi Lovato. She also appeared on Drake’s album Scorpio.
Just wait until you see her on stage. Whether she is putting her stamp on the stage through sheer confidence and charisma, or rallying the crowd into a frenzy with her vibrant moves and outfits to match, she will captivate crowds at Northern Bass.
Stefflon Don was the only female to be included in the 2018 XXL Freshman Class.
