Dominic Fike busted onto the scene off the success of his debut EP Don’t Forget Me, Demos which he recorded while he was on house arrest. The EP was so widely liked that it started a bidding war for who was going to sign him. He was eventually signed to Columbia Records for a reported $4 million. He then went to jail and rose to even greater fame because of his song “3 Nights” which was being played on the radio and reached top five in Australia. He is friends with and frequently collaborates with Ken Abstract and the rest of the BROCKHAMPTON crew.
I have a good feeling about this guy. I think he’s going to be huge when drops his debut album. Similar to Billie Eilish when she dropped he debut album. I find his music to be easy to listen to and I think the pop landscape is right for him to succeed with other “alternative” artists like Billie and Halsey having success.
