OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
Rising pop artist DABIT makes his captivating return with his new single ‘Don’t Wanna Be’, out on January 24th.
DABIT writes dreamy and frank pop songs about relationships and heartbreak, often with darker, moodier, more introspective lyrics and juxtaposed with upbeat electroproduction. ‘Don’t Wanna Be’ is a sign of exciting things to come from the Korean pop star; the track makes a statement, as does he. A world away from the usual Korean exports of singer-songwriters, DABIT commands his own brand of bold pop – paving the way for independent Korean pop artists who don’t fit the K-pop mould.
I am Korean American, born and raised in Ohio. I didn't have much music background, but I had a passion for music, so I set out for Korea to pursue my dream of becoming a K-pop idol. I trained in a few companies but never ended up debuting because I could never fit the concept.
Taking his cues from the silky production of acts like Troye Sivan and Griff– DABIT has crafted his own style of pop for his doting fan base to enjoy. Currently standing at over 14,000 followers on Instagram, DABIT’s fanbase grows greater and stronger with every release.
Explaining more about the track, DABIT stated:
The song lyrics were originally "I don't wanna be a man." And it was actually a song that I wrote to myself in the midst of feeling pressure to "man up" to the modern day's definition of what a "real man" looks and acts like. The song itself is about breaking free from someone who is expecting you to meet their criteria of what they think a man should be within their relationship.
‘Don’t Wanna Be’ is set to release January 24th on all streaming platforms.
