Global Rising Rapper SOPHIYA Shares New Powerful Single ‘Lingo‘ and Announces New EP On October 9th
After kicking things off in style in March with ‘Rosie’, and doubling down with the triple j-premiered ‘Chief O’ Kief’ in July, she’s now back with another high energy heater with new single ‘Lingo’ and a whole lot of good news for her rapidly growing fanbase.
Produced by Sydney’s PAX and mixed and mastered by DOPAM!NE, SOPHIYA asserts herself as the new queen of Melbourne’s hip hop underground and beyond. With bars like “I’m the fucking queen, Melbourne crown me up already I’m the hottest in the scene,” it’s the braggadocious SOPHIYA we’ve come to know and love, but with a refined and matured edge that showcases how far she’s come.
SOPHIYA said of the new single, “Lingo is about feeling misunderstood. I want to push sonic boundaries as an independent artist and ascend beyond the underdog title.”
Alongside ‘Lingo’ comes the news of SOPHIYA’s debut EP ready for release October 9th. Aptly titled Overdue, this EP marks the first chapter of SOPHIYA’s journey so far. Coming a long way from her first foray into music with ‘White Ivory’, Overduehas been a long time coming. Serving not only as a snapshot of all she’s achieved so far as well as an indicator of where she is still headed, Overdue marks the evolution of SOPHIYA from bedroom rapper to star on the rise.
SOPHIYA 64 Bars for Red Bull has clocked well over 500K views, and she’s amassed over 500K streams on Spotify alone. Set to capitalise even further on her exponential growth so far, SOPHIYA returns to finish what she started with ‘Lingo’, and knows it’s only up from here.
