Song of the Day: Push – DDG

Graduating at the top of the hip-hop class and headed for the top of the charts in 2019, internet-breaking rapper and social media phenomenon DDG unveiled his full-length debut album, ‘Valedictorian’ [Epic Records].

Following his recent UK visit that saw him drop an exclusive freestyle for Capital Xtra’s Tim Westwood and drop in with DJ Ace on BBC Radio 1Xtra the star took it straight back to Stateside to take over Times Square in New York City for a pop-up meet-n-greet underneath a massive electronic billboard for the launch of his album Valedictorian.

Alongside the album, DDG also dropped the red-hot video for latest single ‘PUSH’. His casual, yet catchy cadence collides with a bold, barely above-a-whisper hook, “Ah push it.” The accompanying cinematic visual sees him turn up once again with slick swagger and spirit, taking over a lavish mansion surrounded by models before flexing his own moves in front of a lavish estate, capturing his vibe through and through. ‘PUSH’ has put up numbers with over 2.8 million Spotify streams and counting.
