Pastel Papi is someone to keep on your radar — as a talented individual who wears many hats, he’s offering something new to the table musically. The South Central rapper, singer, producer, and photographer is starting to warm up the summer with his new single “Tweakin,” which just dropped on April 1. In the new song, Pastel Papi tells the story of someone who’s made loving them difficult. The song is a catchy vibe that anyone can blast from anywhere — especially the car.
Pastel Papi has a sound that can be described as versatile, yet distinct. He has a catalogue of previously released music that even further shows off his unique ability to blend hip-hop, R&B, pop, and trap into his own genre of music which he dubs as “trap-pop.” Although Pastel Papi is from Los Angeles, his music reflects a different side of his hometown’s music culture and sets him apart from the rest.
“[My sound] is a mix between my light and my dark side, so I mix more vibey night time vibes with my more upbeat raps,” he said in a recent interview.
While the video conveys that Pastel Papi is a creative-type of artist and that he’s capable of curating different sounds together, the visual for the single is also on the way and is set to release April 19.
“I think it’ll express my idea of the story and who Pastel Papi is and really start to introduce the film side of things,” Pastel Papi noted.
