Slowthai has released an incendiary new track ‘MAGIC’ featuring Kenny Beats today (May 13) – listen to it below.
Coming in at just over two minutes long, the trap-influenced release sees Slowthai rap about being “addicted to sex” and his recent commercial success: “The shit that I did for a piece of the pie, and they say I’m selfish – now the pie is all mine“.
Speaking to NME in March, Kenny Beats explained his choice of collaborations: “I make sure that anybody I work with walks away with a good feeling. If I am working on your music, it’s coming from a pure place.
“I don’t need to use anyone’s music as a stepping stone for me to get somewhere as Kenny. I only work with people I am obsessed with, because if I am in the studio with you, I can sing your songs with you.”
Last week (May 10) Slowthai shared ‘ENEMY’, sampling The 1975’s Matty Healy speaking at the NME Awards 2020 – during which the rapper came under heavy criticism for his behaviour and was accused of misogyny.
Since the release of his critically acclaimed debut, the rapper has collaborated with a number of other artists, including Mura Masa, Denzel Curry, Gorillaz, Headie One and Fred Again.
