Dwele Welcomes More Success as Indie Artist Over Major Label

As more and more artists celebrate “Indie is the new major,” the saying holds true for Detroit’s soul singer Dwele. His latest independent project ‘W.ants W.orld W.omen’ landed higher on the Billboard charts than all of his albums released by a major record label.

Dwele told YouKnowIGotSoul the reason for his independent success is “I definitely feel like the ‘Sketches of a Man’ album as well as ‘W.ants W.orld W.omen;’ I had a lot more creative control.”

He continues: “I felt less in a box with those two albums. I had the opportunity to kind of do what I feel.”

With plans for a new project in the pipeline, Dwele is thinking about taking his musical freedom a step further. “I actually might put this joint out myself. It’s a couple of things in the works, but I don’t know yet. I might just want to do this myself,” he says.
