Summery! Stefflon Don Returns With New Single “HIT ME up”
Female rappers are taking over in 2019. This year established acts like Iggy Azalea, Cardi B, Nicki Minaj and newcomers including Megan Thee Stallion made inroads on the Billboard Hot 100. And Stefflon Don could very easily be next. The hitmaker already landed a feature on Mariah Carey’s “A No No” remix. She also linked up with Lil Baby on viral hit “Phone Down.” Now, she is treating us to five weeks of new music. Today (August 21), the 27-year-old introduced Don Drop Wednesday’s.
What exactly it that? Don Drop Wednesday’s refers to an ambitious release schedule with plans to drop a new song every week like clockwork. First up is “HIT ME up,” which has all the makings to be a late-summer smash. On it, the Don addresses a former flame who ghosted her. “You told me I look pretty with no makeup. You stay on my mind before I wake up,” she sings on the vibrant production. That’s followed by a request for some contact. However, she isn’t optimistic about a reply.
“Hit me on the phone whenever you’re alone. I wanna know why, why you don’t hit me.” She opened up about “HIT ME up” on Instagram. “This ones for my Dons that just wanna know what the Hell is going on with the person they actually really really like, like ‘CAN YOU KEEP IT REAL WITH ME ‘ Or Nah babes,” she wrote. Give it a listen below.
