FRESH MUSIC FRIDAY: ArrDee drops new track “LOSER” after smashing ONE BILLION streams

BRITISH rapper ArrDee has dropped his latest track – “Loser” – showing no signs of stopping his mammoth record-breaking run sticking two fingers up at his haters – with a sick new single. 

The down to earth working-class hitmaker from Brighton – who’s signed to Island Records –declared that he’s here “for all the chavvy kids, the common kids” and says he wants to be an example to them so they “can be confident in being different and standing out.” 

He recently racked up a whopping one billion streams with Top 40 hits such as Oliver Twist, Come and Go and Hello Mate. 


RILEY Davies, 20 – known professionally as ArrDee, is a British rapper from Brighton, England.

His debut mixtape, Pier Pressure was released on 18 March 2022 and told his story growing up poor and “in the hood” rapping about crime, drugs and poverty and highlighted the towns problem with Homelessness and deprivation. 

On growing up in Brighton, ArrDee revealed: “I was rapping at the age of 13, I used to run a studio in a one-bedroom flat.” 

He told HYPEBEAST magazine: “At that time the music wasn’t going anywhere, but as I grew up I made connections through Instagram, I’d bunk the train to London, I’d be working and sleeping in studios in London for three days on end, so I had to get the network out there.”

Davies saw success being featured on the remix of Russ Millions and Tion Wayne’s song “Body”, which topped the charts in various countries including the UK.

He then released the single “Oliver Twist”, referencing the book by Charles Dickens, which peaked at number six on the UK Singles Chart.

Davies’s third solo single was “Flowers”, which samples the track of the same name by Sweet Female Attitude and “Say My Name” by Destiny’s Child.

It was released on 11 November 2021 and peaked at number 5 on the UK’s Official Singles Chart Top 100, spending thirteen weeks in the Top 40, seventeen weeks in the Top 100, with seven of those weeks being in the chart’s Top 10.

On 3 February 2022, Davies released his single, “War”, featuring rapper Aitch. On the same day, it was announced that Davies’s debut mixtape, titled Pier Pressure would be released 18 March 2022.

He celebrated his success by buying his Mum her “forever home” revealing: “just one sea-side boy who sat in his dinger rapping, just over a year ago dead broke… just bought his mum a house.” 

The twenty-year-old told fans on his Insta: “Can’t describe the feeling of how mega grateful I am for everyone who supported me, believed in the dream, streamed shared bought or just rocked with my wave.”

ArrDee – Loser is out now on all major streaming platforms.
