Rap­per and sing­er duo Duty Paid today announce the release of their new single. Duty Paid is made up of sing­er Temi Jonah and rap­per DC. Hon­ey­dew is a warm and infec­tious afrobeats inspired song destined to be a pre-sum­mer club anthem.

Both DC and Temi were raised in Lon­don and their music­al back­ground reflects the diversity of the city. Influ­enced by Amer­ic­an hip-hop, R&B, UK rap, afrobeats, both Temi and DC star­ted their music­al careers as teen­agers, often get­ting booked to per­form on pir­ate radio sta­tions and loc­al gigs.

In 2017, Temi and DC joined forces to form Duty Paid, and have been stead­ily rais­ing their pro­file with their effort­less genre blend­ing style. Over the past two years Duty Paid has per­formed in front of 5,000 people at an event in Greece and were spe­cial guests at the Rewind fest­iv­al in 2017. Remark­ably, last sum­mer Duty Paid released their first single Tran­quilito with almost no pro­mo­tion and still racked up 40,000 views in a week — prov­ing their laid back and fun approach to music is eas­ily embraced by the streets.

With a cur­rent sound Hon­ey­dew suc­cess­fully brings togeth­er a fun trop­ic­al melody that is instant­an­eously catchy and blends it with a cha­ris­mat­ic upbeat pro­duc­tion. Already attract­ing a loc­al and inter­na­tion­al buzz, Duty Paid are set to make their mark in 2019 with a debut album on the hori­zon.

Hon­ey­dew is out on all digit­al plat­forms:
