We say

Named by the New York Times as “one of the most important acts in Europe now, musically and socially”, afrobeat and R&B artist Aya Nakamura is back with this high energy remix featuring US rapper Lil Pump. Having burst onto the global stage last year with her viral hit Djadja (over 655m streams to date), the Mali-born, Paris-raised talent is now the most-streamed French female artist in the world and counts the likes of Stormzy, Rihanna, Burna Boy, Sam Smith, and Christine & The Queens as fans. Her latest album Nakamura went double-platinum with over 1.4bn global streams and earlier this year, she earned a BET Awards ‘Best International Act’ nomination and was named among the Forbes 30 Under 30 list. Featuring on 22 Spotify New Music Fridays and on 78 Apple Music's Best of the Week playlists, as well as 53 of their Future Hits too, Pookie sees Nakamura build on her original version (over 160m streams) with Lil Pump rhythmic flow to create a scintillating banger that will surely see her gain more fans here and stateside.
