(November 8th, 2011) New York, NY – Singer/Songwriter/Actor, Rotimi releases his long-awaited mixtape, a ten-song collection which he began working on as music interim between his debut mixtape, “The Resume” and his upcoming EP release. As an answer to fans requests for new music, Rotimi began recording ‘While You Wait’. This project brings an exclusive collaboration between New York’s Power 105.1 DJ personality, DJ Suss One and Atlanta’s own celebrity deejay, DJ Trauma as co-hosts.
With the success of his first mixtape “The Resume”, the New Jersey native has performed on BET’s 106 & Park as the Spotlight artist and even became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter following the performance. Rotimi has also opened up for Jennifer Hudson and most recently made his acting debut as the character ‘Darius’ on STARZ original drama series, “Boss” alongside Kelsey Grammer. This talented multi-hyphenate is well on his way to stardom.
A quick listen reveals a musical journey in which the R&B singer takes listeners on – “Tokyo Love” provides a vivid account of an encounter with a woman of another country, “I wanted people to be able to close their eyes and envision the story coming to life through the lyrics,” says Rotimi.
Rotimi expresses passion in love songs like “Closer to You” and “For Your Love”. Along with many other songs on the mixtape; as a whole, ‘While You Wait’ provides R&B enthusiasts with a strong dose of infectious R&B ballads.
