Coming on the back of a stellar debut year in 2021, garnering strong support from the likes of BBC 1Xtra, KISS Fresh, Earmilk GRM Daily and Mixtape Madness, Up and coming Birmingham’s rapper WOHDEE returns with the catchy and infectious drill offering ‘Wauww’,the first single from her upcoming debut EP that arrives later this year.
Produced by Jacques Charles, who has also worked with Nadia Rose, Wretch 32 and Jammer, ‘Wauww’ sees Wohdee flexing her braggadocios lyrics, confident flow and intricate wordplay over the catchy drill soundscape, which shows a different layer to her artistry. For the accompanying music video, Wohdee has linked up with Leon Matthews (Stefflon Don, Fredo, Tion Wayne) for a fun visual that shows off her personality and future star power.
Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘Wauww’, Wohdee says, “I had never made a drill song before, and I wanted to make one, but change the narrative a bit, since I’m not involved in the drill type of lifestyle lol. I remember being at my job thinking of double entendres for drill slang like ‘splash’, ‘dip’, ‘run man down’ etc… When I finished my shift, I wrote it all down and got in the studio. The video is basically just me, having fun with my mates; a good vibe zone”.
While her early freestyles caused quite the stir and highlighted her immense talent, Wohdee only started recording original music during the first lockdown – music that has since found acclaim from the likes of BBC 1Xtra, KISS Fresh and Capital Xtra. With influences from the likes of Chip, Lauryn Hill, Missy Elliot and Movado, a strong penchant for rap music, and the skill and fluidity to dip between genres, Wohdee is already showing that she is one to watch for 2022.
