In 2022, the rapper ICO unveiled his project “111.” Hailing from Brussels, ICO experienced notable success. After championing his project, he took a step back from the limelight for a while but has now made a striking comeback with the track “TUTU,” which is entirely conceptual. The lyrics for “TUTU” are the work of ChatGPT, an artificial intelligence matrix. Furthermore, the rapper promoted his song on TikTok before releasing it on YouTube.
The instrumental composition of the track is highly engaging and successful, thanks to the talents of three skilled beatmakers: Doubtless, MitchWave, and Saan. The first has previously collaborated with artists such as SCH, DA Uzi, and Kalash Criminel. Mitch Wave, hailing from Gennevilliers in the 92 region, has worked with YL and Larry. As for Saan, he originates from Chartres and draws significant inspiration from Arabic music.
The music video is also a creation stemming from artificial intelligence. It’s an original concept by ICO, accompanied by a captivating title, albeit slightly eerie.
