Four years since breaking into the U.S. with her debut EP The Cocoa Butter Diaries, American born Swedish artist Mapei returns with a video for her new single “Don’t” Wait,” to be released June 22nd via Columbia Records.
The song exhibits Mapei’s signature genre-bending and sonic versatility. Influenced as much by her flair for R&B as by her Swedish pop experience “Don’t Wait” is a musical culmination of her travels and life to this point. It was co-written and produced with pop impresario Magnus Lidehäll.
With a background in rap and R&B, Mapei’s music took shape in the club scenes of Stockholm and New York. Drawing comparisons to Santigold and Rye Rye, her debut EP received raves from Nylon, the Los Angeles Timesand more. Mapei will release a new album later this year.
