IAMDDB is a Manchester-born singer who started off by producing her own music and uploading it to Soundcloud. She gained massive attention from her collaboration with Flying Lotus and her own single ‘Leaned Out’ back in 2016. IAMDDB is well known for her distinctive Jazz influence and her soulful voice. In 2017 IAMDDB claimed her name into the music industry when she dropped her well-known track ‘Shade’, which was part of her Hoodrich Vol.3 Album and made many people continuously repeat the catchy lyrics “Uber, Uber everywhere”.
In June this year, IAMDDB released her Flightmode Vol.4 Album and dropped two videos called “Drippy” & “Kurr£ncy” that are featured on the Album. The Album features 8 songs and consists of her personality and signature style shining through in each. The first 3 songs start off very calm and showcase her vocal skills and sound by the influence of Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu. Each song caters to a theme in particular which is either love, self-affirmation or just being a bad bitch as she portrays in ‘Drippy’ & ‘Kurr£ncy’. In both these songs, IAMDDB wanted to promote her new lifestyle of “dripping sauce” and “making money moves”. The songs having memorable lyrics such as “Look at me flex, I got the sauce yeah” and “Money making moves, yeah I make it”.
After IAMDDB released her video for ‘Drippy’ back in early June, she decided to release her video for ‘Kurr£ncy’ a few days ago. The two videos are shot in different elements showcasing DDB’s personality. One shows a more classy and sophisticated approach whereas the other one is more chilled out. The video is currently pushing onto 200,00 views and shows DDB wearing very stylish clothes and flaunting money with her friends. Most of all DDB wanted to stunt on those haters who doubted her music and sound by showing numbers don’t lie. The visuals are very much DDB by the different colors contrasted within the video and the angles to highlight her location being Tokyo. At the end of the video, you will hear the sound and the beat of the music slowly disappearing and her acoustic voice following in leaving the song off lightly. Many DDB fans and supporters are liking the new sound she’s bringing to her music while being able to keep her signature raspy sound.
IAMDDB revealed in early September that she would be hitting the road with Lauryn Hill for the 20th-anniversary tour which will take place in early December. So make sure to get your tickets. Until then check out her new video down below.
