Masked Wolf (Elektra)
4/15/21

WHAT IT IS: A powerful new force in hip-hop, Australian rapper/singer Masked Wolf has garnered over 250m streams since unleashing a torrent of personal truths on his 2021 debut. After dropping a series of singles, including 2018’s “Speed Racer”—which accumulated over 10m streams on Spotify alone—as well as “Night Rider” and “Water Walkin,” the Sydney native unveiled his latest track, “Astronaut in the Ocean,” awash in airy guitar, jagged 808s and deft wordplay. His one-two-punch of a recognizable riff and chantable chorus organically caught fire online, propelling the track onto Spotify’s Top 50 U.S. and Global charts; it sits in the Top 5 at presstime. The viral track also spawned millions of TikTok videos, including footage from U.S. Blackhawk chopper crews, welders, ice fisherman, Jennifer Lopez and Olympic gold medalist Shaun White.
