SK8 unveils new single and video “Girl Next Door” Featuring duo DVBBS and global rap icon Wiz Khalifa featuring an official music video with appearances by social media superstars Sommer Ray and Scarlett
In the new massive collaboration, SK8 is putting a record out called “Girl Next Door” with EDM duo DVBBS and Wiz Khalifa on Wednesday, July 14th. There is also a video out, featuring DVBBS and Wiz Khalifa.
SK8 Shares, “Working with Wiz is always an honor, and I’m so grateful that he’s supportive of my music. It’s also great to have two EDM superstars like DVBBS join us on the new song, too. With this single I wanted to give the fans a nostalgic quality. I started thinking about all the movies and TV shows I grew up on and that helped me come up with ideas for this song and video. Having the beautiful Sommer Ray & Scarlett join us in the video really tied everything together and I’m super proud to be a part of this monumental piece of art.”
Featured along with the release, the Daniel Kelly-directed video that features SK8 recruiting Wiz and DVBBS for the ultimate garage band as well as appearances by social media superstars Sommer Ray and Scarlett, “Girl Next Door” follows SK8’s previous offerings “Caught In The Middle” and “Famous (Feat. Tyla Yaweh).” American Songwriter praised “Famous,” noting that, “SK8 effortlessly blends hip-hop and punk into some newly evolved sound,” and Hot New Hip Hop hailed the song as a, “genre-melting experience.”
SK8 began building a dedicated fanbase of dreamers who related to his message of seizing every moment long before his eventual move to LA. Shortly after founding his own imprint, Alignment, and formally signing a joint venture with Atlantic Records via James McMillan’s ART@WAR, SK8 released his major label debut EP, sk8sounds, which was buttressed by the standout singles “Omme (Feat. Wiz Khalifa),” “XXX” and “Mood (Feat. YK Osiris).” Over a year later, SK8 turned a new page in his career with his first single of 2021, “Famous (Feat. Tyla Yaweh),” and its associated forthcoming project which finds the rising singer seamlessly blending punk/rock instrumentation with his hip-hop origins, the latest but not last development in SK8’s rapidly evolving artistry.
