Phi11a is back today (October 16) with a smooth new single, ‘Dirty Dancer’. The track was co-produced by America’s Scott Storch, whose previous credits include Beyoncé‘s ‘Baby Boy’, Chloe x Halle‘s ‘Do It’ and Megan Thee Stallion‘s ‘Girls In The Hood’.
In a press statement, the Sydney Inner West local spoke on his chance to work with Storch and the song’s inception.
“Scott was one of the humblest dudes I have ever met, his genius was apparent from the moment I met him,” he said.
“I wrote this song in 5 hours the day before we recorded it and all I can remember was the nerves, but nerves push you to give your all.”

The new track follows ‘Witness’, released in May, alongside Trippie Redd. When the single dropped, Phi11a said he had already envisioned Redd as a featured artist when he wrote ‘Witness’ in 2018.
“It’s crazy. When I originally started working on this song, I thought of either Trippie or Young Thug for the feature (if there’d be one),” he said.
The rapper gave a performance of ‘Witness’ back in August, performing with a full band consisting of Moses Macrae, Ben Freeman and Setwun.
