Music is a universal language. It knows no boundaries, language barriers or preferences. It is the one thing that we can’t live without because it brings people together from different cultures and backgrounds. The SimpkinsTwins is a rap duo doing just that through their latest single.
At 20 years of age, the SimpkinsTwins are a celebrated rap duo, and have earned and solidified their spot in the industry. From attending violin classes at an early age to composing their first musical piece at eight years of age, the rap duo sees no limits to attaining their goals. They have been releasing hit after hit. Their first EP, “Outta Space”, has gained more than half a million streams on Spotify.
Released on May 28th, “Never Stop” is not your ordinary hip-hop sound. Filled with catchy melodies, funny one-liners, and a fresh breath of honest vulnerability, the song has a unique sound that is easy to relate to and vibe to the rhythms.
According to the duo, rap is more than music: it is their lifestyle. To them, the studio is a haven where they can explore their creativity freely. A good thing about creativity is that you can never use it all up. The more you use it, the more you will have. Most people classify good rap in terms of the flow of the lyrics. One of the things that make the SimpkinsTwins stand out is their diversity in the flow, style, and lyrics, making it a unique blend.
There is no doubt that the SimpkinsTwins are musically talented. From the songwriting to the production, their music is one of a kind. In making their songs, the duo says they mainly draw their inspiration from their fellow tweens or the global occurrences.
Since its release, “Never stop” has become a household tune gaining more than 76,000 plays in less than 30 days. In the song, the rap duo illustrates young adults’ wildest hopes and dreams and the insecurities they face in pursuit of their goals.
Although social media is a beneficial way of interaction and conducting business, the SimpkinsTwins note the pressure it puts on young adults. “Never stop” depicts the struggles of a young adult on a journey to reclaim their throne and be on top despite the many challenges and the fake smiles from the low-key haters.
Sadly, this is a reality that most people go through almost every day. The rap duo says to survive on social media, you have to develop a thick skin and remain focused on your mission. Through the song, they portray a picture of a young soul determined to achieve their goal no matter the challenges.
The song was released when the “usual” way of life had been disrupted, and people were living in confusion. This has made the song a lot more relatable. The pandemic has dramatically affected the music industry. The cancelation of concerts has been a significant challenge for most artists. In all this, the SimpkinsTwins say they made a promise to never give up on their musical ambitions regardless of the circumstances or obstacles.
As their new music continues to make headlines, the SimpkinsTwins are just getting started.
