Kojey Radical announces debut album, ‘Reason To Smile’

 Tiana Major9, Masego, Shaé Universe, Cashh, and Kelis all make guest appearances

Kojey Radical has announced his debut album, 'Reason To Smile', which will land on 4th March through Asylum and Atlantic Records. 

The UK-Ghanian rapper has lined up an impressive list of guest appearances for the record, including Tiana Major9, Masego, Shaé Universe, Cashh, Kelis, and his mother. The single 'War Outside', featuring Lex Amor, is also included, as is the hit 'Gangsta'. 

“This is the first time I’ve done it to the scale and ambition of what I speak," Radical said of working on his first full-length outing. "Previously it’s been ‘I’m warming, I’m warming, I’m warming up.’ But I’m warm now — put me in the game.”

A three-time MOBO Awards nominee, in 2019 Radical joined the likes of Skepta, Major Lazer, and Hot Chip on the soundtrack to 'FIFA 20'. In 2020 he also appeared in The Guardian's cross-generations artist interview series alongside British hip hop luminary, Rodney P, discussing the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, sparking Black Lives Matters protests across the world.
