Published

on

Blending athletic verbal dexterity with a sharp sense of storytelling and a facility with melodic flows, rising Edmonton-via-Burundi artist ARDN is the total package. Coming through with an aspirational anthem perfectly suited to rising temperatures, ARDN shares Paper,” his latest single. Built around a walking bassline that provides a perfect counterpart to ARDN’s vocals, “Paper” finds the rising artist effortlessly switching flows from melody to rapidfire rhymes and back. The artist’s virtuosic verse mixes impressive internal rhymes with cutting punchlines and flirtatious come ons, creating quotable quips purpose-built for social captions: “Ion ever miss, but if I ever do, you can guarantee I’m gonna put it back.” “Paper” is available everywhere via 11 Music Group.

“‘Paper’ is a song that describes a girl I have strong interest in, that is dealing with a number of struggles in her life,” explains ARDN. “I offer her an opportunity to escape, by taking on a new journey with me in which we’ll adventure, and grow rich together.”

ARDN continues, “I went to the studio one day to record, and my boy Tyler Banditt showed me this idea he came up with for me, with my other friends Mardi Woya and Mariano Zelaya. I was instantly hooked, and couldn’t get the melody out my head. After the session I rushed home and immediately started penning verses to compliment it and everything flowed effortlessly. I went back to the studio, we put it all together, and we both knew in that moment that we had just made something special.”

“Paper” continues a breakout year for the young emcee, marked by organic growth and augmented by viral success. Earlier this year, ARDN made waves on TikTok with his song Til The Morning,” which generated over 17k video creations and helped the song surpass 1.3 million streams on Spotify. ARDN’s follow-up single Jupiter & Mars” proved his staying power, generating over 1.2 million streams in two months and earning praise from Complex. His 2022 built on momentum created by his single “Wavin” (2.8 million Spotify streams) and its accompanying project “Alien”.

ARDN has been honing his craft for years, studying the music and movement of artist like Anderson .Paak, Smino, and J. Cole and filtering his influences through his experience as a child of immigrants and his prodigious talent. With much more music on deck, including an EP dropping at the end of the summer, ARDN is one of the most exciting artists in the game today.
