Producer-turned-solo artist Sonny Digital dropped 2 new singles last Friday, and it’s gotten people buzzing. Since it was announced that Sonny would put out his debut EP, Woke You Up in January 2018, fans are wondering if there are more pending singles he’s got up his sleeve, waiting to drop in coming days.

While Sonny didn’t specify in his 2017 announcement the format of his forthcoming project, many assumed he would be dropping the entire project at once. Dropping the tracks standalone, however, definitely keeps us on our toes!
Sonny’s foray from producing into rapping is already exciting, and certainly a standout career path from the more common artist-to-producer progression we see in the industry. While Sonny isn’t the first to go this path, as other artists – most notably Kanye West – have done it, too, the high quality of Sonny’s new singles is indicative of a possible shift we could see in the near future with regard to producers trying their hand at solo artistry.
Both tracks have been widely well-received according to social media response following last week’s drop. So far, his choices for features on “Love My Plug” and “Keep It Real,” Black Boe and BWheezy respectively, have been a FLAWLESS fit for each track. Sonny’s signature hard base lines and 808 kicks are definitely present, so it’s cool to see this transition unfold as Sonny clings to the dynamics of his beat artistry that have made him such a success in the realm of producing. It comes as no surprise that someone with his impressive resume, working with greats such as Wiz Khalifa, Kanye, Future, and 2Chainz, would put out quality beats under quality flow and find the right artists with whom to team up.
“Love My Plug” and “Keep It Real” have us eager for more from Sonny. Let’s hope we don’t have to wait too much longer for the full EP!
