Multi Grammy Award winning Teddybears’ (Swedish) are amongst the very first pioneers to start crossing sounds of hip hop, pop, rock, dancehall and electro all together and creating a whole new style of music, their ahead-of-time way of thinking has earned them two U.S. Grammy Nominations and nine Swedish Grammy Awards, out of which six were for Teddybears alone.
Collectively, the have worked with the likes of Cee-Lo, Iggy Pop, Flaming Lips, Robyn, Wiley, Madonna (before her fall at the Brits), Snoop Dogg and Daft Punk amongst others, the Swedish trio are respected and appreciated all around the world.
Teddybears are on a far greater mission than to have yet another hit. After having fought for years against racism, inequality and prejudice, this time they want to be heard loud and clear. Their new single What’s Your Problem? is not a just a single. It is a whole pro-equality barrier- bending movement which even comes with its own instruction manual:
1. Ask yourself now: What’s your problem with someone of different gender? What’s your problem with someone of different skin colour? What’s your problem with someone of different religion? What’s your problem with someone different? What’s your problem?
2. Ask yourself again: No really, what is your problem?
3. Press play.
Baby Trish, who features on What’s Your Problem?, is a twelve year old girl from Jamaica. Teddybears met her when she was only nine, while working in a studio in Kingston with her godfather Beenie Man. Having built quite the reputation as a performer in and around the capital, Baby Trish joined the band to record their single.
Get behind Teddybears on a mission to change the world by asking ourselves one crucial question “What’s your problem?”
