DTS’s impressive debut, afforded him so many accolades, including a review by The Guardian Life that summarily described him as an artist who has embodied his music and become one with his sound. Going by his performance on said debut, this appraisal isn’t so farfetched. It is also now the foundation that the singer begins to build his career on. This week, he digs his feet deeper with Mr Nike, a synth-pop bruised single, featuring April Maey.
The release of the XtremeTheProducer-produced Mr Nike follows the commendable success of DTS’ precedent single, Heaven, a remix featuring Buju, which climbed alternative and Afro-pop music charts for weeks, raking in thousands of streams and appearing in numerous recognized playlists.
Captive, seductive, and fresh out of the oven, Mr Nike tells the story of a pimp who falls in love with his co-worker but fears to be vulnerable despite his conflicting ‘Just do it’ personality.
“I am a huge fan of Nike, and so is Mr Nike,” DTS says, “he has the Just do it attitude.”
Worlds apart from Heaven, Mr Nike, with its lofi pop RnB woven sound, is not just refreshing to the ears but a marker of DTS’s ability, now on the spot along with his prospects in the industry.
