Despiteno formal music training, Myaap credits her background as a dancer (along with a musically inclined brother) for her intuitive ability to turn any setting into a party. It’s no wonder then that she has swiftly become a TikTok darling, inspiring dance trends like viral track “Getting to It”, which samples ABBA’s “Dancing Queen”, and has racked up 120,000+ videos on the platform. Myaap doesn’t make songs as much as she does anthems; absurdist manifestos informed by the strong cultural community in Milwaukee, emphasizing collective joy over the individuality of hustle culture. Since breaking out onto the scene, Myaap has collaborated with Milwaukee leaders like Certified Trapper and AyooLii. But she isn’t just a regional legend— a newfound favorite among critics, she was featured in Alphonse Pierre’s ‘Best Records of 2023’, (among several other Pitchfork shoutouts), along with recently being championed by UPROXX.
