Mahalia has teamed up with Rico Nasty for her first new single of 2021, ‘Jealous’.
It follows on from Mahalia’s appearance on Pa Salieu’s ‘Energy’ last year, and Rico Nasty’s feature slot on chillpill’s ‘LiLBiTcH’ with Soleima last month.
Speaking about the track, Mahalia explains: “I made “Jealous” on a sunny day at the end of Summer last year. I was sat in the studio with Cadenza and Miraa May getting some stuff off my chest from the past few weeks. “Jealous” was born pretty fast after chatting. It was a weird time… I was dealing with friends being super unsupportive about decisions I was making and I was struggling with navigating that. I’m really proud and excited about what came out in this song and I hope people love it in the same way we did when we wrote it. Rico Nasty is a badass and one of my favourite artists so getting her to feature was a huge moment for me!”
Rico Nasty adds: “Covid couldn’t stop shit! So happy to be a part of this record with Mahalia.”
Dear Reader, Covid has in fact stopped some shit. Just not this. Which isn’t shit. It’s good.
