Early 2016, Dazed magazine, always on the lookout for the next big thing, described Tommy Genesis as the “most rebellious underground rap queen”.
Since then, this Canadian with Swedish and Tamil origins has left the underground to proudly take a place under the spotlights. She’s modeled for Calvin Klein, supported Dua Lipa on tour and collaborated with M.I.A., Charli XCX, Abra, and Empress Of. On her eponymous debut album, released last November, she alternates singing and rapping. Her sultry aura and her explicit lyrics can’t hide her vulnerability on some of her songs. The combination of genres enriches her music and her personality, Tommy Genesis is a real wild thing, Cardi B better watch out!
