BREAKTHROUGH SONG “GANGSTA” CROWNED OFFICIAL CHARTS’ TOP “AFROBEAT TRACK OF 2020”
“Pick Up” follows Darkoo’s her previous hit “Cinderella” and comes complete with a dextrous official video, directed by Kelvin Jones (AJ Tracey, KSI, Aitch) where she plays her own love interest. The track showcases her distinct vocals along with her signature afro sound.
With dreams of becoming a footballer before signing up to study engineering at university, Darkoo’s path took an unexpected turn after exploding onto the scene with the anthemic track “Gangsta” featuring One Acen — a track that gave Darkoo her first UK top 40 at the back end of 2019 and was crowned by the Official Charts Company as the top Afrobeat Track of 2020.
Still only 19-years-old and with over 1.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify, Darkoo is one of the most talked about breakout UK artists around right now, with co-signs from the likes of Wretch 32, Tion Wayne, Ms Banks and NSG. Her imaginative, genre-blurring music blends her love of international sounds with the UK underground, helping create a unique form of AfroSwing that she’s firmly made her own.
