“Bigger Man” with Maren Morris releasing Today is from Oladokun’s highly-anticipated forthcoming major label debut album and adds to an already notable career for the artist, who shared two additional album tracks earlier this year: “jordan” and “wish you the best,” featuring Jensen McRae. The new music builds on last year’s in defence of my own happiness (the beginnings), of which Vogue declared, “already been compared to Adele, Tracy Chapman, and Stevie Nicks, thanks to the rawness that runs through her mesmerizing hybrid of Americana, folk, and pop.”
