Pa Salieu has shared his new single ‘Glidin”, which features a guest spot from Slowthai. You can take a listen to the track below.

The BBC Sound of 2021 winner had posted a snippet of a new track on his Twitter earlier this week (June 1) in which he’s seen bouncing to the beat on a chair in a recording studio.

Yesterday (June 2) he followed up that clip with footage him and Slowthai dancing in a blue-lit room to the same music, which suggests the latter features on the song. Nothing has been confirmed, including the song’s title, which from hashtags accompanying the posts points at it being called ‘Glidin’.

It’s Salieu’s first outing since appearing on Toddla T’s ‘Still Royal’ remix of Protoje and Popcaa’s song ‘Like Royalty’ in March. The rapper released his debut mixtape ‘Send Them To Coventry’ last November – read NME‘s four-star review here.

Slowthai, meanwhile, has announced details of his new one-day festival, Happyland, at which Salieu is performing.
