The music industry is an ever-changing environment with new artists emerging every few months keen upon capitalizing upon their moment of stardom. One such individual who has made his presence known within the underground music scene is Colombian artist, Drillani, who is consistently proving his versatility and dedication to his music by experimenting with new sounds and taking them to new heights.
Drillani’s most recent release, “Angellica EP”, is an excellent example of his musical versatility and dedication as an artist to consistently release music. Apart from his consistency with releasing music, Drillani is also very involved with those who support him on social media and has made it a duty to express his appreciation. In an interview held with a popular music blog, Drillani emphasized, “I wouldn’t be here today without the people who support my music and care about me so I make sure to give them my all in return.
Popular social media apps such as TikTok and Instagram have become game-changers for upcoming artists in various fields including music. For artist Drillani, TikTok was his passageway to stardom and he can accredit his rapid growth within the music industry to his marketing through social media. Excellent marketing paired with catchy music has been this young rappers’ key to success in the modern music era.
Despite getting a late start in the music industry, Drillani has quickly made up for his lost time through collaboration with other artists within his field, consistency with releasing new music, and dedication to daily marketing himself as an artist. Before picking up the microphone, Drillani began as a bedroom producer and was later inspired to begin rapping after a few months of music production and engineering. His journey as an artist can be compared to the likes of Pi’erre Bourne who launched his career after establishing himself as a producer.
His most recent single, “Firearm,” perfectly reflects his music style and overall energy he approaches his music with through high energy vocal takes and the expression of raw, pure emotion. The influences of Playboi Carti and Lil Uzi Vert are evident, mainly due to the fact they are among Drillani’s favorite artists. However, his sound, rapping style, and flow are unique to him alone which has attributed to his quick rise to success.
Drillani has a special connection to his music genre and he has stopped at nothing to make his presence felt through high-energy concert performances around the greater DMV area. Due to his recent buzz, the rapper has announced his first headline show called “Angellica Takeover” at the University of Maryland in late spring.
While Drillani is known for making great music, a key component to his popularity includes his charming and charismatic behavior when interacting with his supporters. Maintaining the line between vulnerable with his fans while private enough with his personal life is a skill Drillani has mastered. The talented artist continues to latch on to every opportunity that crosses his path and has claimed, “I will stop at nothing to live out my dream.”
While the details for his Angellica Takeover Tour are still in the works, Drillani has also teased a major studio album later this summer. In order to keep track and follow the journey of the upcoming rapper, press the link below.
