Headie One drops new single ‘Rose Gold’
Today, Headie One shares the release of his new single ‘Rose Gold’. Produced by Ghosty, the track sees Headie reaffirm his position as one of the UK’s finest MC’s. Alternating between hard-hitting bars and melodic flows, Headie’s presence on the track is effortless.
Unapologetically catering to his core fanbase and drill purists, ‘Rose Gold’ is a return to Headie’s roots. Harkening back to the sounds of last year’s Music x Road, following the experimental excursion of his collaborative project ‘GANG’ with Fred again...
The accompanying video is directed by acclaimed director Nathan James Tettey. In addition to previously helming videos for the likes of Dave, Fredo and Mist, he also worked with Headie on the visuals for ‘Both’ and ‘18HUNNA’.
Minimalist and DIY in its approach, the video gives fans a glimpse into Headie’s life. Throughout the black and white visual, Headie is seen working diligently in the studio and in the gym while also having fun and making the most of his time in isolation. Bringing out a carefree and spontaneous feel to the home-made style video
‘Rose Gold’ marks Headie’s first solo track since the release of the ‘GANG’ mixtape in April which featured an eclectic list of collaborators including FKA twigs, Sampha and Jamie xx.
Displaying a diverse set of musical sensibilities and sounds, ‘GANG’ was immediately critically acclaimed, receiving praise from a host of tastemaker publications like CRACK, NME, Pitchfork, Dazed, Loud & Quiet and more. One of the standout tracks ‘Charades’ has since accumulated nearly 5 million streams.
Bursting onto the scene in 2014, the Tottenham-based rapper has since cemented himself as one of the UK’s most formidable talents, instrumental in leading the wave of drill music. His contributions have seen the grassroots subgenre rise from the underground to become one of the most praised scenes in modern music.
To date, his music has since amassed over 60 million streams while notching up multiple top 20 placements on the UK Charts with ‘Music x Road’ reaching the top 5 last year. Last year he played Glastonbury and sold out Brixton Academy, his biggest headline show to date, while his huge crossover track ‘Both’ became his biggest airplay hit.
