Multitalented rising artist Aries unveils his newest single “DITTO” via WUNDERWORLD / Columbia. Written and produced by Aries, “DITTO” encompasses the genre-blending 22-year-old’s ability to create an infectious fusion of hip-hop, pop and alternative influences, while also showcasing his signature raw vocal talent. Accompanying the song is a nature-filled DIY-style official video, directed by Aries and his long-time visual collaborator Mattias Russo-Larsson.
“DITTO is an attempt at reigniting a dead flame,” Aries explains. “Trying as best as possible to replicate what once was.”
Aries displays his artistic fervor with “DITTO,” which follows the release of the rapper/singer/producer’s 2020 releases “CONVERSATIONS” and “FOOL’S GOLD.” The tracks have accumulated over 15 million total streams and views to date and marked Aries first musical offerings since his debut album WELCOME HOME last year.
Taking an unconventional route to build a fanbase, Aries first made a name for himself on YouTube, putting his self-taught production skills to use by recreating the beats behind popular songs in 2 minutes. As these videos gained momentum Aries simultaneously posted his own music videos on the platform, building an avid fanbase of over 430,000 subscribers in the process. Following the release WELCOME HOME, this legion of die-hard fans showed their support as Aries sold out all 21 dates of his North America and Europe tour, and in doing so announced his presence as one of the most in-demand new artists on the live circuit.
Stay tuned for more Aries!
