The newly released single marks Akeem Jahat’s fourth single of the year, kicking off with ‘Hollywoodlands’ in March. The track tackled the topic of loneliness over a sombre piano melody.

In July, Akeem Jahat collaborated with singer-songwriter Marian Carmel to release ‘What Are We?’, a slow-burn R&B trap on which Jahat trades in his usual quick flow raps for slower delivery.

In September, Jahat and Carmel shared their second single, ‘Heartbreak Boulevard’, a song about “seeing a cute person then wanting to throw [your] life away for them”.

In October, Jahat released his fourth single of the year, ‘Berapa’. The track, his liveliest release of the year, features funk instrumentation, with groovy baselines, trumpets, saxophones, lush keys and tight percussions.
