070 Shake Review


Mia Nedeau

Soundcloud artist, Danielle Balbuena, a.k.a 070 Shake, is a female artist straight out of New Jersey accompanied by her 070 crew.  In 2016, Pusha T found out about 070 Shake’s music and was blown away by her contemporary R&B style and soulful, leathery voice, so he signed her to the label, GOOD Music.

She is best known from Kanye’s Wyoming project and is featured on his album, ye in “Ghost Town” and “Violent Crimes.”  In an interview with Rolling Stone, she is asked what she is going to do next:  “I’ve just got to keep going, keep making some fire and keep that momentum going. It’s really just work, and keep accomplishing more goals. I’m about to drop a project. It’s going to be really dope. I learned a lot from who I was around, I think I’m just going to be better at what I do now.”

On March 23, 2018, she released her EP Glitter which exposes her struggles with her sexuality, addiction, and depression.  She advocates, “It’s not time for talking about money. We have to talk to people about being real,” she insists. “If you project these things to people, they are going to think you need that to be happy. No. You need love,” (DefJam).
