‘Stress’ is an honest and relatable record, which sees DDROID address all sorts of pressing issues that he has faced in life. Whilst touching on music, money and relationships, DDROID ultimately realises that his challenges are meaningless and channels his energy into thanking God for his blessings.
The new single comes fresh off the back of his appearance as a contestant on season 2 of BBC’s ‘The Rap Game UK’ Show, hosted by Radio 1/1Xtra presenter DJ Target, and chart-topping rap duo Krept & Konan. DDROID’s exuberant aura did not go unnoticed as The Guardian, in their Rap Game UK review, stated “he made it his business to uplift everyone.”
His music career began as one half of Birmingham’s loud and proud ‘Wavy Gang’, with direct support from Lotto Boyz; who they joined on their UK tour in 2018. Throughout his time in Wavy Gang, the pair went on to release a number of singles, including ‘Stylish Guy’ and ‘Playtime’, both of which have surpassed over 1.5million streams on Spotify alone.
DDROID’s steady rise to prominence has led to sessions with artists, D Double E and Skengdo x AM, along with producers ATG Musick and Z Dot. He has named the likes of UK heavyweights Skepta, J Hus and Dave, as well as Drake and A$AP Rocky, as major musical influences.
For the new energy-fuelled record, he teamed up with emerging producer CJ, and director Jordz Visualz to help bring his vision for the music video to life.
