Meet RIMON, an Eritrean-born, Amsterdam-based artist, who’s making her DopeHouse debut with the release of her I Shine, U Shine EP.
Providing a modern blend of dancehall, neo-soul and hip-hop, the follow-up to 2018’s (equally dope) BBYGIRL FOCU$ EP is produced entirely by Samuel Kareem with features from Denzel Curry and Darrell Cole.
“Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse and Lauryn Hill have had major impacts on me musically, but I think my work is a mixture of all kinds of genres, influenced by many legends,” RIMON told HYPEBAE last year.
“I hope [my audience] can relate–feel less lonely, you know?” she continued. “Knowing we all go through sh*t in life. I hope it gives them power too. The power to overcome things, to grow and to learn.”
Press play below and be sure to add RIMON’s I Shine, U Shine EP wherever you consume music.
