Multi-talented rapper/songwriter/dancer Chloe DMND continues to bridge the gap between being an influencer and musician with her latest release and music video 'Receipts'. The offering comes after the success of her latest single 'Type Bitch' which accumulated significant traction despite being independent.
Produced by Melbourne's HFNR and featuring vocals from Aston, 'Receipts' is a story about a cheating boyfriend that is caught out when receipts for his mistress are found. Like her past releases, Chloe's ability to tap into emotions and capture the situation makes 'Receipts' a relatable and passionate rendition.
Having gained a loyal following on Social Media and often being compared to Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, Chloe is positioned as an internationally friendly artist as well as locally popular due to the ever growing hip hop scene in Australia. She is also eager to prove she is more than "just a rapper" having had a passion for hip/hop, singing and dancing from the age of 7.
"I want people to view me as not just a rapper but an Artist, I not only rap but I also sing and am a songwriter" - Chloe Dmnd
