This presentation was written early in the year 2020. Tessa has come a long way since then and is also in the line-up for Roskilde Festival 2021.
Tessa came out of thin air in 2019. On her Instagram profile she uploaded hard-nosed freestyle raps, which resulted in staggering view counts. Everyone was taken aback by the young female rapper from Danish concrete suburbia who embraced her background and spat lyrics that would make most people blush.
Of course, Instagram was just the beginning for Tessa. She needed a real platform to release on. It didn’t take long before her name appeared on various streaming platforms with her first official song.
Tessa followed through on her uncompromising approach which she started in the freestyle videos. ”Snakker for meget” (‘talking too much’) came first and was later followed by the singles ”Okay” and ”Ben”.
At this early point in her career, Tessa had not performed live. She made her live début (!) at Roskilde Festival 2019 where she played a handful of songs at our opening party on the Countdown stage. And the way she took the stage proved that Tessa already has stardust sprinkled all over her.
Tessa's journey towards the stars has just begun. In 2020, she will play her first full concert on the Countdown stage. Don't miss out on Denmark’s most cheeky rapper!
