Introducing the Sound of "Beautiful Music" By Rotimi

Rotimi - ...the future of R&B.

Rotimi - "...the future of R&B."

In the beginning, when the whole idea to create was hashed out over 4am Denny’s think tank/after party rendezvous and late night dorm room “get rich” brainstorming; there was always one central idea that stuck no matter how much the original concept evolved. That objective was that one main goal of CRM should be to become an asset to up and coming artists, producers, and anyone else who sought out positive exposure. And in keeping up with that original adage it’s always welcoming to have new artists reach out to us in hopes of getting out their dreams (Kanye just seemed to say that best.) With that being said, I would like to introduce Rotimi to those who do not already know him.

With a big assist coming from CRM marketing honcho Liad Onitiri I would like to present you all with a brief look into the budding star that is Rotimi.

Rotimi Akinosho is a Maplewood, New Jersey singer/songwriter/actor/model who is currently attending Northwestern University in Chicago. The young multi-talented entertainer has been winning crowds over since adolescence, having won amateur night at the world famous Apollo Theater at age 15. Since then Rotimi has attempted to sustain his initial success by continually recording and performing at & around campus. He also took a route that is becoming more & more common for R&B artists today and released a mixtape entitled, “The HG Compilation.” The mixtape was well received having sold 800 copies in just 2 weeks.

Rotimi’s newest single “Beautiful Music” is gaining steam across the internet with several hundred plays a day. I must admit its been in rotation since I received the track, and a few chance listeners around at the time have also stamped the song as a definite hit. The way Rotimi allows the beat to guide your body’s movements, but at the same time completes the track with captivating lyrics is something not always found in today’s R&B.

As a bonus check out another song that fans of Rotimi seem to be requesting as well, called “Good Good.” This song reminds you of Snoop’s “Sexual Seduction” with a Neptunes flavor.

One thing is clear, Rotimi will continue to grind in hopes of garnering an opportunity with a major label. He has already been cosigned by several major artists including Vickie Winans and Jay-Z. But truthfully, I’m sure even he will admit that none of that matters if the fans are not feeling the music he makes. But if my opinion is worth anything I’d say that dude is on the cusp of making a breakthrough album. He’s got the essentials, a good voice, talent outside of just singing, and most importantly a what looks like a good work ethic. Grinding is, and will always be recognized around here. So in the near future be on the look out for a follow-up interview and more new music from, “…the future of R&B” Rotimi.
