Underground wave makers Dotty and Bobii Lewis link up for new track Beautiful.
For most of us our musical introduction to Dotty was either way back or more recently with the New Gen project. On that project Dotty hit us with some home truths in a heartfelt track that didn’t shy away from any topic. Since then Dotty has released It’s Luv and Gone With The Wind alongside freestyles on Rinse FM, Link Up TV and more.
Throughout this stream of releases Dotty has only opened up more and this is a welcome change amongst the rap climate. Whilst his message is always powerful this should not be mistaken to mean it overshadows his talent. Dotty clearly has talent in spades and we need him to be putting out more work. His latest offering works towards this well and has him link up with Bobii Lewis. Speaking of Bobii Lewis he also deserves a lot of credit in his own right having featured on tracks with the likes of Wretch 32, Kojey Radical and Avelino. Here on Beautiful, Bobii compliments the rhymes of Dotty with his distinctive and emotive vocals.
At the moment Beautiful doesn’t have a video but we can hope for one as this is the kind of track that screams for a video. Dotty again isn’t shy about self expressing here as usual. This time tackling ideas of self-confidence and an attempt at uplifting women, something not enough rap music does. The pairing of the very mellow and bare instrumental allow for both artists to be the track standouts. It’s the kind of track you’d play in the car, on a long journey or hear in the background of a Rom-Com.
