New from the 1010’s very own SAM V, ‘SHAWTY’ kicks off his 2020, and it’s fair to say he’s back with a STATEMENT.
‘SHAWTY’ is a fiery and outlandish R&B-Hip Hop bop, produced in collaboration with award- winning producer, EDY.
Already a veteran of the NZ music scene at 22, SAM V has been in the spotlight and releasing music since age 12, having worked with the likes of Vince Harder, Donell Lewis, Lion Rezz & Parris Goebel. SAM V’S SHAWTY sees him channeling these experiences into a more mature, brash & explicitly-charged R&B vocal performance, likened to that of Justin Timberlake & Jason Derulo.
Lyrically, he also flashes his potential as an MC, spitting an energetic and impressionable verse.
Following a successful 2019 where SAM V was a prominent feature on the NZ Hot Singles charts, released 2 albums & 10 music videos, and started his own creative collective called Y$O, SAM V has waltz’d back into 2020 with a statement worth ‘rolling wid’.
Namely a statement called - ‘SHAWTY’.
