Known for his intense vocals and uncompromising realism, Casanova embodies the defiant and self-reliant spirit of New York City. Delivering an anthem for his hometown community, Casanova shares “So Brooklyn,” his new song.
Running roughshod atop minor-key piano and backed by an ensemble chanting “BROOK-LYN!”, Casanova announces he’s aiming for the top spot in the Five Boroughs, bursting out of the speakers with his authoritative bark: “I start sh!t and I spark sh!t/Bout to get on some real King Of New York sh!t.” The new track features a colorful verse from Fabolous, who works in a cheeky reference to the country’s number one song: “Old Town Road for my projects/Ride ’til I can’t no more, I’m Lil Nas X.”
Since breaking out in 2016 with the local hit “Don’t Run,” Flatbush native Casanova has been one of NYC’s most consistently raw entertainers. Released on New Year’s Day 2018, his single “Set Trippin'” established him as a radio and boombox mainstay, earned over 20 million views on YouTube, and headlined his debut Commissary EP. Earlier this year, Casanova dropped Free At Last, a collaborative EP with 30 Roc, a Bronx-born who has worked with the likes of Cardi B, Travis Scott, and more. The EP boasted “2AM,” an afropop-influenced single with a Lagos-shot music video, featuring appearances from Tory Lanez and Davido, which earned more than 10 million plays on Spotify alone. Stay tuned for much more from Casanova in the coming months, as he continues his artistic evolution and commercial climb.
