Amaarae has shared details of her second album, 'Fountain Baby'.

Set for release via Interscope on 9th June, the new record follows on from 2020 debut 'THE ANGEL YOU DON'T KNOW' and features the previously released single 'Reckless & Sweet'

To mark the announcement of 'Fountain Baby', Amaarae has also unveiled another track from the record, 'Co-Star'. You can watch a video for the single below.

Speaking about the song, Amaarae said in a statement: "'Co-Star' is a fun song about star signs! I wanted to give people something cute and flirty for the summer! Astrology is such a huge part of our youth culture, it felt like a missed opportunity to not lean into that and give the girls an anthem that reads and celebrates them all at once!

"The video is amazing too! Having some of my favourite women in the whole wide world represent themselves in such an iconic way. The Clermont Twins are such an iconic duo. Also Biba! Deto! Moyo! Bijou & Chi are such a huge part of alternative African culture. These are the tastemakers of our time! It's really so amazing to bring them all together."
