After proclaiming he was the Rookie Of The Year on his new 11-track effort, the blossoming Louisiana artist seems to get whatever he “Desires” as of late.

Touting collaborations with some of the underground’s best and brightest in Yeat, KanKan, Iayze, Summrs and more, Desire is unabashedly carrying over his 2021 success into the new year — using his captivating vocals and rage-inducing energy to will his way into new wave rotations.

With an already expansive catalog stemming from just 2021, Desire has been on a tear in the last year. Along with dropping his latest full-length album ROTY, Desire’s consistently put out music since January kicked off. Along with three albums’ worth of tracks, he shared “Call You The Prelude,” “Don’t Exist,” “miami & clubbin,” “dopesick” and his most recent “RIDE P2” (Feb. 1) all within weeks — sometimes days — of each other, as the young lyricist’s SoundCloud presence is truly where his star shines.

While this revitalized, new wave sound continues to sweep music’s current landscape, Desire is quickly becoming a notable name alongside those he’s pushing the sound with. Touting over 23,000 monthly listeners on Spotify and 10,000 followers on SoundCloud, Desire’s come-up is coupled with the success of his older brother Summrs — who is featured on “2 Lit” and “Blood Bruddas” off ROTY.

The pair are poised and potent when rapping together, seamlessly intertwining their signature styles and fusing into one — like a Dragon Ball Z-esque power combo. Desire, however, leans into his singing more so than his brother does, peddling hypnotic vocal slides over hard-hitting, pluggnb-rage production. On tracks like “Sippin Drank” and “miami & clubbin,” Desire floats over both ends of his sonic spectrum — bodying the atmospheric and gritty nuances of “Sippin Drank” while gliding on “miami & clubbin” effortlessly.

Bolstering his presence in the underground one track at a time, the only “Desire” fans want is more music from the rising Louisiana enigma.
