Grime and R&B lovers watch out: I’ve got the perfect release for you! Curious? Then look no further.
I want to introduce you to EMIL, the upcoming star among the booming music scene in the UK. On her new song Hero, the emerging artist teamed up with no other than her close friend and Grime superstar P Money with whom she had already collaborated on his mixtape Money Over Everything.
In the past years, EMIL has worked closely together with The Heavytrackerz – who are responsible for many hits from Stormzy, Katy B or Skepta – and ultimately charted at number 28 as a feature guest on Joe Weller’s Wanna Do back in 2015.
Influenced by old-school R&B legends such as Sade and Lauryn Hill, Hackney-raised EMIL quickly developed a passion for music, especially for writing songs herself.
Now her debut single Hero has arrived finally, and it’s amazing. According to the beautiful songstress, the Ras (The Forbes)-produced track is about Being in the real world chasing a fairytale, while P Money’s rapid bars represent the heartbreak-tune in an interesting male perspective.
I personally love the combination of gritty Grime and soulful R&B so I’m really digging this track. Listen below:
