The Opposites are a Dutch rap duo consisting of rappers Willem and twan. Early on, The Opposites was an English-language outfit, but they soon abandoned English for their native Dutch. They have been popular in the underground rap scene for quite some time, but started reaching broader audiences with their first single, "Fok Jou," ("Fuck You") from the album "De Fik Er In" ("Fire It Up"). They continued gaining popularity with their next single, "Oew Oew," and a collaboration with other artists on a number for a film soundtrack. Their next single, "Slaap" ("Sleep"), also from "De Fik Er In," reached number 1 on the Dutch pop charts. It was made in the classic Opposites style, but reached a huge audience. They are now a popular and well-known Dutch hip-hop group.
