The melodic rap track comes after Rio changed course from professional footballer at 20 last year and the realisation that music had the power to help him express his feelings. From a footballer to a musician. Following his debut single ‘Afro’, IThinkThatsRio is poised to leave a huge dent on the 2021 freshman class with a slew of upcoming singles!
I believe the message behind it [the song], is that we should be free to make our own choices, without fear of ridicule or judgement from other people – in my case, it’s how I wear my hair sometimes. – Ithinkthatsrio
