Artist Spotlight: Aminé


Portland rapper and banana enthusiast, Aminé is making summer more vibrant with his upbeat and super catchy song “Caroline.”

Born in Portland, Oregon with an Ethiopian background, Aminé (pronounced Uh-Mean-Aye) has us all wishing our names were Caroline in his self-directed music video to this summer’s anthem. Lots of yellow, bananas and a cool pulp fiction shirt is just some of the things you’ll see in the video below.

Check out his 10 tracked mixtape Calling Brio here – my favorites are “Ye Ye” and “Rage/Peace” – and make sure to follow him on Twitter and Instagram for updates and hopefully tour dates in the near future.


Bethel is a junior at the University of Houston studying Broadcast Journalism and Global Business. You can either find her fighting for her life at a concert or obsessing over new music at your local coffee shop. Follow @bloobart for weird tweets.
