Watch Ekelle’s New “Dropped” Music Video
Ekelle is a multi-genre artist and songwriter from Toronto who rhymes about what she knows best – her real life experiences. New single, “Dropped,” is based on Ekelle’s true story of her 2015 false arrest under suspicion of drug trafficking. Not wanting this sudden roadblock to stop her momentum, she pushed herself to keep putting out music anyway – it was the only way to get through juggling court appearances and a fulltime job. The depression and anxiety would really sink in whenever she was standing still, causing her to slip into some bad habits; keeping busy kept her mind off things.
When the charges were (fortunately) dropped, Ekelle felt an enormous weight lift from her shoulders. If she could get through this life-altering moment, then she could definitely handle the music industry. Ekelle took this as an opportunity to be more honest and intentional with her craft, sharing moments and stories she would have normally kept to herself in the past.
