Melbourne rapper Jordan Dennis today shares new cut ‘Egyptian Lover’ featuring Dallas Woods & production from Jujo. Unapologetically catchy from start to finish, the track sees Jordan seamlessly transition between flowing rhythms to smooth falsetto.
On the single, Dennis explains; ‘The track was written with the thought that we couldn’t wait to get out of lockdown, to socialise and to be with people. In a way, that reality was almost a distant fantasy, we might as well have been flying jet planes through Egypt….. wait… Dallas, JUJO and myself managed to create an amazing body of work when we did find those moments we could get together, of which this is the first to be released.’
Jordan Dennis first emerged as the frontman for the soulful, hip-hop inspired collective Billy Davis, whose 2017 album Family Portrait featured the likes of Denzel Curry and saw praise from OkayPlayer, DJ Booth, among others. A master at weaving multiple genres into his craft, Dennis’s solo career took off in 2018 where he has since seamlessly bounced between smooth neo-soul, spitfire rhymes, and glossy precision-cut wordplay invoking the style of JID, Kenny Mason, Mick Jenkins, and building a loyal fanbase along the way (+ global syncs on Axe/Lynx Smell Ready Ad, Netflix’s On My Block and Kipo). Dennis’ sharp-witted verses have also appeared on tracks produced by UNO Stereo, Dugong Jr, and more.
Dennis’ assured flow and tender falsetto make him sound like a fully formed pop star, with the artist expertly towing the line between R&B and smoked out party rap. He’s dropped two EPs since 2019, HDMI1 and HDMI2, seeing support from the likes of COLORS, HipHopDX, Clash, Okayplayer and more. His passion and contagious presence have landed at festivals across Australia including St. Jerome’s Laneway, Let Them Eat Cake and NYE on the Hill, as well as support slots for Baker Boy, Winston Surfshirt, Mr Carmack, Joe Kay, TOKiMONSTA, and Tones and I.
“Dennis works his magic with his lyrical wit and breezy flow”
“Jordan Dennis is a name you should commit to memory ASAP. We promise this is an artist who will make a name for himself real soon”
“Jordan Dennis Embraces His Eccentricities As ‘Elon Must'”

“The lyrics are clever and unpredictable, focusing on gravity-bound limitations before expressing the need to “fly out into the galaxy”, and Dennis’ delivery is smooth and fluid enough to be mistaken for hip hop greats such as Kendrick Lamar.”
