Baltimore's premier dance-rap spitfire Rye Rye has unleashed not the fires of hell but of her brand new single "Boom Boom!"
The bouncy track, produced by Rudy "Mayru" Maya (Rihanna), samples the Vengaboys' 1999 hit "Boom Boom Boom Boom." Check it out here.
The video for the single, directed by Legs (Florence + the Machine, Goldfrapp), will drop later this month.
Rye Rye has been dubbed "the voice of Baltimore" at the tender age of 21.
Want some history on this pint-sized powerhouse, who we love?
She was the first artist signed to M.I.A.'s label N.E.E.T. Records and past collaborations have included hits with mentors M.I.A., Diplo and DJ Blaqstarr. More recently she teamed with Scandinavian dance queen Robyn for last summer's "Never Will Be Mine" and Far East Movement on their fall track "Jello." We were totally and completely crushing on "Never Will Be Mine."
Rye Rye's Go! Pop! Bang! will drop on May 15. It's sure to be full of bouncy playground jams will be pumping out of every actual schoolyard—and car stereo, club, block party, and house party—just in time for summer.
