Dominic Fike’s New Singles “Chicken Tenders” & “Politics & Violence”

Since his drop of his “Don’t Forget About Me, Demos” EP back in 2018 Dominic Fike has continued to impress with his music structure & lyricism. He has since found himself in the likes of collaborating with Brockhampton’s lead Kevin Abstract as well as Kenny Beats & Omar Apollo to name a few more artists. Now the Naples, Florida artist finds him self in 2020 gearing up to drop his anticipated debut album “What Could Possibly Go Wrong” on July 31st.

With almost every album comes the usual 1 or 2 singles before the project is released & Fike gave us just that. His first single “Chicken Tenders” dropped on June 26th & gives us that pop vibe & hard hitting vocals we know Fike for. Where he goes about his life referencing luxury from a hotel room, on the road & having that bond with another while being on the trips that music/life takes you on. His 2nd single “Politics & Violence” dropped on July 7th in which I believe is the hardest hitting one of the two. He harmonizes you while throwing shade on what haunts the hills of Los Angeles.

Fike has always been know for his strong lyrics such as on “Politics & Violence” he goes on saying: “Hollywood don’t need a reason to make you think you look bigger than you are, mileage, politics and violence at least somebody’s drivin’, all you need to fall in love…” really cuts at the life that surrounds LA that some come to enjoy with the title being just that. The song flows into the smooth transition at the 1:50 mark in which the song the song trasnfers into the boom bap drums Fike is known for. These drums are accompanied by Fike’s slick rap flows that he remembers from his early days with his track “Jada Pinkett”. Nothing I felt more in this track than when he comes in singing then goes onto a quick & catchy rap verse saying: “Clean my room and pray for this, eat my dinner
then go back to whatever finna make me rich…” was the verse I found myself repeating for days on end.

I really found myself repeating numerous lines from these singles being that’s what Dominic Fike thrives at it seems. Being that I have been on Dominic Fike since early 2018 & have loved watching every second of his growth. It is safe to say that after July 31st much more of the world will know Dominic Fike beyond just his song “3 Nights” like he deserves but until then Naples will have to wait for their local staple to punch his ticket as a household name in the music industry.
