A few short months after Robyn Ottolini’s “F-150” became a TikTok viral sensation and landed the artist a record deal with Warner Music Nashville, the “true emotional earworm” (Taste of Country) is hitting country radio airwaves, impacting today (LISTEN HERE). The track has garnered over 16 million streams globally, is currently No. 26 on the Canadian country charts and reached No. 4 on Spotify’s all-genre US Viral 50 chart and No. 3 on Rolling Stone’s all-genre Trending 25.
Ottolini recently released an acoustic version of the track along with an accompanying video (WATCH HERE). The video, which premiered on The Boot, was shot in one take and showcases Ottolini and her guitarist performing on the bed of a burning truck. It was shot right after the official music video was captured, featuring the same burning truck and some of Ottolini’s real life friends (WATCH HERE). Written by Ottolini alongside Erik Fintelman and Mark Schroor, the clip’s red-hot visuals were filmed in the Toronto, Ontario area near her hometown of Uxbridge.
Ottolini’s small-town-Canadian upbringing serves as the creative inspiration for every witty, relatable lyric she writes. Inspired by artists like Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves and Sam Hunt, she’s already released two EPs independently, including The I’m Not Always Hilarious EP earlier last year, was a Rising Star Award nominee at the Country Music Association of Ontario Awards in 2019 and has been named a 2021 Artist To Watch by The Boot and Yardbarker. Ottolini is managed by Mark Schroor & Erik Fintelman from Workshop Music Group.
