Warner Canada’s latest signee, Charmaine has already started making her mark on the international hip hop stage. Millions of streams, support from Spotify and Amazon Music, and airplay on BBC 1XTR have all helped propel Charmaine to new heights and her new EP ‘HOOD AVANT-GARDE’ proves she’s more than entitled to be there.
Opener ‘I DON’T CARE’ is the perfect start. Confident and powerful, it’s clear from the get-go that Charmaine isn’t here to play. ‘WOO!’ continues the confident theme with Charmaine’s lyrics keeping the listener on their toes. ‘DOUBLE DUTCH’ is another highlight, one which sums up Charmaine’s cheeky, boasting attitude perfectly.
‘HOOD AVANT-GARDE’ is an impressive body of work which is more than deserving of the attention it’s garnered. Here’s hoping there’s more to come from Charmaine because if ‘HOOD AVANT-GARDE’ is anything to go by, she’ll be headlining festivals in no time.
