With the Covid-19 Pandemic dampening the spirit of several Caribbean natives, recording artiste Kalpee has released ‘One More Night (Gimmi De Ting)’. The Trinidadian artiste fuses the sounds of the islands with a taste of calypso, contemporary R&B, and dancehall. The summer-ready single has made its rounds on several radio platforms in the United Kingdom and the Caribbean.
Known for singles such as ‘Love Letter’, ‘No One’, and ‘Colourful’, Kalpee has shown his extraordinary and multifaceted skills writing and co-producing on the track. The artiste worked alongside The Anmls who are known for numerous projects with international acts such as The Weeknd, Future, French Montana, and Meek Mill, among others. “I linked up with The Anmls whilst in LA last year and we’ve been vybing ever since. We were in the studio working on a groove and while looking for inspiration on where to take the song, I said, ‘gimme de ting’ which to me means, pass me something and it just happened to fit, so we went with it. I wanted this song to be all about good vibes, whether you dance to it or chill to it, I just hope it makes people smile and feel good” said Kalpee.
While he hails from Trinidad, the ‘Gimmi De Ting’ artiste presently resides in the United Kingdom. Inspired by the likes of Chronixx, Protoje, Bob Marley, and Jimmi Hendrix, Kalpee has been featured on BBC Radio 1, EARMILK, Hunger TV, Ladygunn and Flaunt Magazine to name a few. He has also racked up over 25 million streams and is looking towards Billboard success with the track ‘One More Night (Gimmi De Ting)’. Kalpee said “I have a solid team working with within the Caribbean and here in the UK who understand and support my vision. I want to make music that uplifts people spirits”.
Kalpee is now on the promotional trail and is eager to embark on his Caribbean Radio Tour later this year. The artiste also completed a motivational School Tour in Trinidad end of 2019 and in the UK and Ireland February 2020 and is looking forward to spreading the message of love and light to the wider Caribbean. ‘One More Night (Gimmi De Ting)’ is available via Absolute on all digital platforms.
