The Birmingham-born rapper celebrated a big win at last night’s VO5 NME Awards 2018 after picking up the prestigious Best New Artist supported by Vans prize – triumphing over the likes of Sigrid, Shame and SZA.
Speaking to NME after collecting her prize – following a “This is for the women. Big up the UK!” declaration on stage – Stefflon was able to give more details about her next project.
Promising that her debut studio album was also in the works, Stefflon said: “We’re dropping a mixtape in March, so I want you guys to look out for that. We’ve got a [big guest track] with Future.
“It’s a bit turnt, but it’s also very meaningful with the stuff that we talk about on the track,” the rapper said about the feeling of the new song.
Stefflon also revealed that the two artists first met when Future invited her out for a support slot on one of his recent European tours, while also confirming that the pair recorded the track in Stefflon’s own studio.
