Felipe Da Don cashes on two years of growing potential with his new single, “Sticky,” formally announcing his arrival to the national scene. Felipe, a rep of Atlanta’s West side, stars alongside two of his city’s hottest stars, Lil Baby and Gunna, in a moment that positions him to kick down doors in 2021.
“Sticky” is the natural evolution of “drip,” and here to define it in its metaphorical glory is the three-headed combo of Da Don and the scorching Drip Harder duo Lil Baby and Gunna. Despite a tempo that barely outpaces a stroll in the park, Felipe approaches with intensity and gusto, and his platinum partners respond in kind when Baby’s impassioned braggadocio and Gunna’s slick delivery enter the fold. You only need to hear it once before limbs start moving involuntarily.
Lil Baby and Gunna’s appearances on the track represent more than a seamless hit combo. As arguably the two most successful young stars to emerge from the region since Young Thug, collaborations with young talent from Atlanta hometown are viewed as endorsements by many. Appearing jointly beside Felipe is no accident. His future is bright, and the leaders of his city know it.
As Felipe looks ahead to 2021, the foundation he’s built for himself continues to galvanize. His most popular release to this point, “Risky,” has surpassed a quarter-million views on YouTube and in addition to working with Lil Baby and Gunna, he’s been in with Future—his Epic Records labelmate—and expects that they’ll be releasing music in the near future.
The theme for 2021 in Felipe’s world will be expansion. He’s off to a heck of a start.
