070 Shake slips between hip-hop, pop, alternative, indie, and R&B like a ghost, leaving her mark on each before she vanishes again. Born of Dominican descent and raised in New Jersey, she embraced her position as an outlier in high school with predispositions for both poetry and basketball. (Her nickname “Shake” references a particularly mean crossover dribble)
She found a place to fit in among the G.O.O.D. Music crew after they heard her independent single “Proud.” Following the 2018 Glitter EP, she materialized at the forefront of popular culture with tastemaker-approved guest spots on chart-topping releases, including “Santeria” from Pusha T’s magnum opus Daytona and the outro of “Ghost Town” from Kanye West’s eighth studio album Ye.
At the top of 2020, her full-length debut Modus Vivendi bowed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top Current Albums Chart and notched 4-star reviews from Rolling Stone and NME in addition to praise from The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, and Pitchfork. It also emerged on mid-year lists from Complex, i-D, and Esquire, while The Ringer hailed the single “Guilty Conscience” among “The Best Songs of 2020 (So Far).” Psychedelic arena band Tame Impala even remixed the latter. Plus, she brought this captivating vision on the road and sold out her entire world tour. Not to mention, she has collaborated with everyone from Nas and DJ Khaled to Jessie Reyez and _By.Alexander. With hundreds and millions of streams to date, 070 Shake continues to reimagine and redefine popular music with every move.
