New Breed feat. Little Simz, Q-Tip, Idris Elba

Grown Kid/7Wallace
Have re-ordered the title of this so Little Simz appears first, because she utterly fucking RULES this track, just as she ruled 2019. French producer James BKS follows up the superb 'Kwele' with this ode to Africa and empowerment, BKS' Cameroonian roots coming through strongly in the Afro-inflected production, Q-Tip as ever spitting with total authority and Elba displaying a surprisingly tight control of the steel-mesh. ALL about Simz though for this fanboy — surely the greatest artist of 2019, here showing that 2020 is only going to see her awesomeness grow. Love this little banger.
