“In terms of the song and what it represents, it speaks for everyone that's been in a relationship that hasn't necessarily worked. You know when you get to that turning point where it feels like everything is just going wrong – this song captures that battle for the relationship,” replies the artist when asked about his new release, Hear Me Out, written by himself and produced by the Grammy Award-winning producer Dera, who has also worked with the likes of Bad Bunny, Jack Harlow, Major Lazer, and Diplo.
Having been connected to music since his teens and stepping into the spotlight with Summers, his 2019 collaborative EP with New York-based producer Melvitto, he hasn't stopped releasing songs that have become hits with millions of streams worldwide. The British Nigerian native, who has just closed out this year's Somerset House summer series as the final headline act of the renowned 11-date gig series, adds this about his latest release: “I'm trying to prove to my girl that I'm a changed person, but as they say, 'your past always catches up with you'. For the listeners, I want them to feel like they're in the middle of our intense argument, and it's like, woah this could really be it.”
