Swedish star Ängie has released the video for her brand new single ‘Dope’. The new song is the lead single to be taken from her debut album Suicidal Since 1995 out on April 6th through Universal.
The new single features dark bass and rolling beats intertwined with a heady emotional flow, proving intoxicating and addictive in classic Ängie fashion. She explains, “‘Dope’ is actually a love song, confusing love with the rush for music and drugs. It’s a love song to music, dope and the person that makes me wanna fight for it.”
The ‘Dope’ release is accompanied by an exclusive t-shirt designed by Ängie, limited to a run of 150 pieces available soon through The Hyv. Each track on Suicidal Since 1995 will be accompanied by a limited-edition item of clothing especially designed by the singer. The album release is also marked by a limited edition Suicidal Since 1995 hoodie.
‘Dope’ is the first taste of Ängie’s debut album, which finds the Swedish singer on a darker and more emotive tip from the controversial pop that shot her to international fame. She burst onto the scene in 2016 and took the world by shock and awe with her debut single ‘Smoke Weed Eat Pussy’. The following singles ‘Housewife Spliffin’ and ‘Spun’ further cemented her status as one of the hottest names to come out of Sweden.
The songs have clocked up 6 million views on YouTube and Ängie has had unofficial fan clubs established across the world in locations as far flung as Brazil and Russia. She has received critical praise from the broadsheets, scandalised the tabloids and became an overnight internet sensation.
Suicidal Since 1995 showcases a new and ever-more intriguing side to Ängie, developing her sound in dark and unexpected ways that are sure to add to the huge acclaim she has received.
