South London ‘s Amplify Dot will be releasing her brand new single ‘I’m Good’, featuring US rap legend Busta Rhymes, on 22nd July 2013 through Virgin EMI Records.
Fast developing a reputation as one of the most engaging female MC’s the UK has ever produced; this witty wordsmith has already been championed by Wretch 32 and is revered by her peers.
‘I’m Good’ follows Dot’s debut single ‘Kurt Cobain’ and was premièred via Mista Jam’s show on BBC Radio 1Xtra yesterday after a run of teasers leaked by SBTV caused a huge buzz online. The track features a wild and frenetic contribution from the legendary Busta Rhymes, his verse running riot across the thumping bass-line and chattering beat.
Check out the release below:
The forthcoming video, directed by Jeremy Rall (T-Pain, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg) was shot in sunny Jamaica and sees Dot dancing with locals as well as cruising around on a customized ‘Sound Bike’ kitted out with speakers; her cheeky playfulness, teamed with bouts of fiery attitude are a poignant celebration of female power and identity.
Lauded for her enormous drive and ambition, Amplify Dot’s career started with an unplanned Brixton Academy appearance with Missy Elliot at the age of just 13. Now she’s working on her debut album due for release later this year.
