Donnie Aki – Calvins

Donnie Aki explores the nature of relationships in catchy beats with thought provoking lyrics

NEW YORK, NY – Originally from Princeton, NJ, multi-genre artist, Acasio Pinheiro is known by his stage name “Donnie Aki.” Starting off with Rap and Hip Hop, Donnie’s latest music, a blend of EDM, Pop, and Hip Hop, has caught on like wildfire. Riding high on the success of the single “Calvins,” Donnie is getting ready to release his new single “Held Me Down” on September 6.

Created in under 24 hours, Donnie’s hottest single, “Calvins” is featured on popular playlists and has been streamed over 170,000 times on Spotify alone. The success of that single, a collaboration with an old schoolmate and DJ, pushed Donnie to really start taking music seriously.

Described as Soft Trap mixed with EDM and Pop, the new single, “Held Me Down” was professionally recorded and mastered at Premier Recording Studios in New York City. Engineered by Gonzalo Contreras (Busta Rhymes, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, Snoop Dogg, Travis Scott). This song brings a summer vibe mixed with heartbreak. What makes Donnie unique is his way of bringing his life stories into his music in such creative ways. A lot of his music is based on his emotions towards his past or current life experiences. 

“Calvins” is a song that appreciates how one person you know is worth your time. It is quite different from his upcoming song, “Held Me Down”, featuring a change to a slower beat where he sings about missing that one special person. A prolific creator with over thirty original songs in the works, Donnie gets inspiration from artists such as the Chainsmokers, Juice Wrld, Bazzi and Calvin Harris.

Because he spent so much of his time making music, Donnie gave up a scholarship to follow his dreams and make music professionally. He has been making music for around three years now and wants to connect with his fans with all his songs. “The lyrics are a big part of what makes [my music] unique,” said Donnie.

Aki is finishing up on a new album to follow the release of “Held Me Down.” Expected to drop in October or November, the album will take listeners through a musical year, exploring the different vibes and sounds of all the seasons.

The artistic path has not always been smooth. He has lost friends and relationships over the choice to do music. Aki affirms that “my favorite part about making music is seeing people having a good time singing and dancing to my music” Music is what he wants to do and what he has the most fun doing.

New York City music fans can catch Aki at an upcoming show when he performs at The West End club on Friday, September 20 (21 and over). More information and tickets are available at
