You Need to Watch RIMON's Stunning Music Video For 'dust'

The Amsterdam-based singer of Eritrean descent is one to watch in 2019.

RIMON could very well be the next big thing in alternative RnB.

The 21-year-old singer arrived in Amsterdam with her mother while she was still a toddler and spent her early years living in Dutch refugee camps.

She broke into the scene last year with her debut single, "Grace," a soulful R&B track that gets you hooked with its nostalgic feel. Her debut EP, BBYGIRL FOCU$, was released last November and its newest single, 'dust', is the kind of ear candy you need for the new year.

"'dust' is a continuation of a once very sweet love story which turned out to not be so sweet in the end. It's a song showing the pain, rage and confusion that I've experienced when someone who I really loved, broke my heart," says RIMON on email.


Rimon's style and voice are undeniably captivating and equally promising. We will definitely be looking out for her this year.

Watch the music video for 'dust' below.
