Stylishly blending genres and keeping things aptly connected to both the nostalgic and contemporary implications of its title, SirTootie’s Rockstar unites raw guitar work and free-flowing rap vocals, for a summer anthem that naturally energises.
Introducing the artist and rapper SirTootie on a devoted high, Rockstar progresses from its catchy hook through faster-paced verses and a subtly varied flow, to ultimately showcase a vocalist and performer with an eclectic and capable approach to the mic.
Structurally refreshing in its mainstream set-up of chorus-verse-chorus, Rockstar achieves a welcomed balance between the inspiring sense of possibility at its core, and the more personal and revealing anecdotes that allow fans to build upon that connection with the artist at work. The result is a believable, accessible and memorable anthem – easy to get into yet loaded with grit and detail once you listen more closely.
Bringing together alternative rap qualities with that pop-esque flavour and songwriting, Rockstar makes for a bold step outwards into the broader scene. It will be interesting to hear where else the music takes Baton Rouge creative SirTootie in the coming months.
