Emicida Looks Inward in the Fortnite Soundwave Series!
Following Mohamed Hamaki and Tones And I, the next artist in the Soundwave Series is almost here! Featuring artists from around the world, the Soundwave Series now puts the spotlight on Brazilian rapper Emicida. Emicida’s show will air back-to-back for 72 hours starting Friday, April 29, 2022, at 6 PM ET!
Each show in the Soundwave Series takes place in its own interactive experience, including Emicida’s show. As announced previously, Japanese pop artist + music producer Gen Hoshino and record-breaking French-Malian singer Aya Nakamura will have their own shows to experience in Fortnite in the future. Keep an eye out for details over the coming months as the Soundwave Series continues. 🎵
Made by creators BertBuilds, Paradox Builds, and Zen Creative, Emicida’s interactive experience is inspired by his life’s journey and how it influenced his music. The setlist, which includes some of Emicida’s biggest hits, tells the story of how he grew up in Jardim Cachoeira in the north of São Paulo, Brazil, and became one of the most popular rappers in Brazil and a successful artist worldwide.
In the experience, Emicida shares a bit of his path as a rapper, from when he was doing street rap battles to becoming recognized internationally.
