Artist Chucks Èhtréppär releases latest single ‘On Me’

Released on August 15, ‘On Me’ is the new single from Nigerian hip-hop and rap artist, Chucks Èhtréppär, and is from of his debut EP ‘Afro-Trap The First’. Chucks has been writing, recording, and releasing his own music from a very young age, and after going through a number of stage names, his latest takes its inspiration from Chance The Rapper, and indeed, his second name is “The Rapper” spelled in reverse, with accents added for effect.

Although it’s described as Afro-Pop/Afro-Trap, ‘On Me’ has a very dancehall vibe to it, feeling like hip hop with a twist. With very catchy rhythms, it’s clear that Chucks has a very strong personal connection to his music, and he cites one of his favourite memories as performing on stage and seeing his family cheering him on from the audience.

Besides Chance The Rapper, Chucks considers his major inspirations to be J Hus, and Burna Boy. ‘On Me’ has an incredible energy, which makes the prospect of Chucks’ EP all the more exciting, if all the songs are like the first!

‘On Me’ is out now and can be streamed and downloaded here. You can find out more about Chucks Èhtréppär and his music by checking him out on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Soundcloud, and Spotify.
