A quick pic from the set of Keyshia Cole's upcoming video for "Trust & Believe" as Rotimi announced he'll be starring as the lead guy in the video. Another great look for the rising star, who will exhibit some of those acting chops from BOSS with Keyshia.
Rotimi, an upcoming R&B singer currently out here in Chicago, was one of our most recent guests on our GWHH radio segment on Vocalo 89.5 FM and you can watch the video of us in the studio above! Rotimi talked many topics with Tibs, myself, and host Mz. Shenita, but mainly touched on a couple in detail: the in-depth creative process behind his collaboration with Dawn Richard (Of Dirty Money) and some insight into his lifestyle of balancing his burgeoning music career with his last semester of college at Northwestern University. We are always interested in understanding the creative process of artists, being designers ourselves, to see the similarities and differences in our natural fields (between music, art, and architecture). Rotimi’s story about working with Dawn is particularly interesting and enlightening considering that Rotimi wrote the entire record, including Dawn’s part. Also, Rotimi capped off the segment (but begins the video) with a special a capella of his other hot single “Beautiful Music”!

You can also DOWNLOAD “You Already Know” below in case you still need it. It’s been gettin’ some burn on Power 92 and WGCI out here in Chicago and hopefully soon to a radio station near you! Finally, remember to check us out on Vocalo 89.5 FM every Thursday at 11:20 AM CT. Enjoy!
Last week, we caught up with fast rising R&B artist Rotimi right here in Chicago for another exclusive interview. Fresh off of his debut video for the soon to be smash hit "Beautiful Music", Rotimi talks to us about the balance between college life and a music career, the aforementioned single, an upcoming collaboration with Dawn Richard former member of Danity Kane, and future plans in 2010! We definitely see no ceilings for this young artist, and can be so bold as to say that he has the potential to be the new Trey Songz! In case you missed his Valentine's Day premiere of "Beautiful Music", watch the video below and don't hesitate to follow him on Facebook, Twitter, and his personal website. Be sure to keep it locked on GWHH for more fresh joints due to hit later this month! Enjoy!
