kei - "like ooo"

If you were at the 2022 Boston Music Awards, you're a fan of kei. The winner of Best New Artist blew the entire crowd away that night with one of the most energizing live performances I've ever seen. Her latest single, "like ooo," shows off why she's become a local sensation in the Boston music scene. It's a playful and energetic hip hop song that dabbles the tiniest of bits into R&B. As someone who prefers throwback hip hop more than the more popular and modern style, Boston seems to be producing artists that can live in both worlds. kei is an example of that, as "like ooo" sounds like a hip hop song in 2023 that acknowledges what came the forty years before. There are a lot of rappers around here that are due to break out nationally sooner than later, and kei is at the top of that list.

You can watch the video for "like ooo" below. For more on kei, check out the artist on Twitter and Instagram.
