TICKETS FOR HARAM! TOUR ON SALE THIS FRIDAY!
[New York, NY – September 9, 2021] Today, GoldLink shares the long-anticipated official music video for “Raindrops” featuring Flo Milli. Click here to watch the vibrant clip directed by Ray Fiasco.
Described as a “soft, dreamy track” by Complex, “Raindrops” is one of the many standout tracks on HARAM!, GoldLink’s third and most personal, genius, adventurous and riskiest piece of work to date. NPR proclaims that HARAM! is “the most compelling and brilliantly executed music of his career,” while The FADER states “GoldLink returns with defiant and boundless energy on his new project Haram!, juggling genres as skillfully as he does different flows.”
Continuing to redefine what a “rap star” is meant to be, GoldLink’s quest is to challenge the idea of rap titles in art in his pursuit to becoming a musical deity. His upcoming HARAM! TOUR is destined to bring his vision to life – live and direct!
Kicking off September 28 at Denver’s Cervantes Otherside, fans will have the chance to see “Raindrops” and other favorites performed live by one of today’s most dynamic artists in hip hop! Tickets go on sale Friday, September 10 and can be purchased here.

Where the intersections of the DMV (DC, Maryland and Virginia) collide, GoldLink is a direct product. Washington, D.C., and the broader DMV area, have long been treated like a musical Rubik’s cube. There are bursting, Technicolor patches of musical brilliance, but the component parts never line up in a way that made sense to those on the outside. GoldLink is not interested in spelling out all the nuances of his hometown; what he does aim to do is synthesize his environment’s litany of influences and inspirations into something unique, singular, and all together his own.
With his RIAA-certified Gold debut studio album At What Cost (Squaaash Club/RCA) – helmed by the monstrous single “Crew” – released in March 2017, he’s done just that. By merging the sensibilities of go-go with the African diaspora, he’s done what hip-hop has done from its inception: repurpose what’s available into something magical.
The success of At What Cost and 4x Platinum single “Crew” saw GoldLink achieve several career firsts — from his Grammy nomination for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration to the iHeartMedia Music Awards nomination for Best New Hip-Hop Artist to his BET Awards nomination for Best New Artist. Adding to his accomplishments was a Grammy Nomination for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration the following year with “Like I Do” with Christina Aguilera.
Following up in 2019 with Diaspora, GoldLink continued to show his sonic range and influences as shown on singles “Zulu Screams” ft. Maleek Berry & Bibi Bourelly, and “Joke Ting” ft. AriPensmith. The album was recognized by Pitchfork as “the best music of his career,” and Highsnobiety declared “GoldLink can conceive of and execute his ideas better than most anyone in hip-hop today.” Diaspora made several Best Albums of The Year lists including Complex, UpRoxx, Hot New Hip Hop and more, while “Zulu Screams” made The New York Times “54 Best Songs of 2019” list, calling it “a supremely catchy international collaboration.”
