Alternative hip-hop artist, Dominic Fike, recently released a new single, “Chicken Tenders.” The music video was released on June 25, and the song was released to streaming services the following day. The catchy song details Dominic’s life on the road touring. Fike sings about his love life and experiences going from hotel to hotel, frequently ordering chicken tenders. Fike has been performing the song at live shows since his concert in Chicago in September of 2019.
A couple of weeks ago, Fike took to Instagram to share with fans that he had plans to release this single, but ultimately pushed back the release date to bring attention to the recent political climate and the importance of the Black Lives Matter movement. As an ex-convict himself, Fike shared his story about his experience as a person of color dealing with police.
