Toosii Drops New Single, “Keeper”.
“Keeper” is Toosii’s first single of 2022. If the rest of his music is as genuine and hypnotic as this one, he is set up for a great rest of the year. A gratitude expressing track that celebrates finding your “Keeper” and growing old together. Even referencing Uncle Phill and Aunt Viv from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
“And we can grow old like Viv and Phill”– Toosii on “Keeper”
This song reminds the listener that the 22-year-old Syracuse-born, Raleigh-based artist is indeed a “Keeper” in the music industry. An ever-evolving, ever surprising artist who grinds like he still has something to prove.
The video is a continuous celebration of finding your true love and growing old together.
Producer and editor, Brian Robels, who previously managed Toosii’s video for “Sapiosexual” and “Shallow”, did a great job of combining Toosii’s performance of the song with footage of several couples, at different stages of their relationships including Toosii and his girlfriend Samaria who are living out their love in real life.
Additionally, “Keeper” was filmed in Atlanta with the Loopholes who also collaborated with Toosie on his 2021 mixtape, Thank You For Believing, which earned acclaim from tastemakers like TheFader, Complex, and The Source just to name a few.
“He’s one of the strongest young faces rising in the rap game, impressing the masses with his emotional melodies and his raw storytelling.”– HotNewHipHop
With a gift for his drenching real lyrics represented with rich emotion, Toosii is one the most relatable artists.
He began 2021 as a member of XXL’s esteemed Freshman Class. By year’s end, he had crossed the threshold of one billion global catalog streams, performed at Rolling Loud Miami & LA, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits and completed his first U.S. headline tour, which included sold-out shows in New York City, Chicago, Washington, DC, Boston, Houston, and Orlando.
Toosii has earned every bit of recognition he has received in his young career.
