Mapei – Don’t Wait

Even though she lives in Stockholm, Mapei was born in Rhode Island (her father’s native country) from a Liberian mother. She came out this fall with her first single Don’t Wait, becoming in a few days one of the most talked-about new artists. Don’t Wait  is a crafted piece of pop that explores every genre and matches her international background but is anyway deeply rooted in the hip-hop culture, from the heartbeat thump and doo-wop finger snaps of classic soul record labels to a proper and more current R&B vibe.
