At the forefront of Hip-Hop’s rapid rise in Australia lays independent artist Carmouflage Rose, who’s debut single, Late Nights, has amassed millions of streams online without the backing of a major label.
The independent Brisbane-based rapper has accumulated more than 3 million streams on Spotify alone for his debut track, after the single was championed across an array of flagship R&B/Hip-Hop playlists on the platform.
“We have been stoked with the level of support Spotify has thrown behind Late Nights, and the success the song has generated to date. We can only say, watch this space. There are big things to come for Carmouflage Rose in the very near future,” commented manager Josh Taylor-Anderson.
The incredible feat has not only positioned Rose at the forefront of Australia’s budding Hip-Hop scene, alongside fellow independent stars Manu Crooks and Anfa Rose, but it has proven that the backing of a major label is no longer a necessity when it comes to finding immense successes.
“It’s an exciting time for Australian Hip Hop and R&B, and Carmouflage Rose is an artist to look out for in this space (and beyond). We are thrilled to be a part of his story,” commented Peter Stevens, Music Editor at Spotify Australia.
Carmouflage Rose is destined for further and greater successes following the overwhelming reception to Late Nights, (which also landed at #199 in Triple J’s hottest 200 count), exciting fans and Spotify curators alike on what 2018 holds for the rising star.
