You know what? Not many rappers in the UK scene can say they’ve been co-signed by a major US rapper after their first release — but that’s exactly what kind of power K Harrison harbors. Hailing from Derby, the rising East Midlands wordsmith might only have one official song out, but he’s already championed by Compton rap legend The Game, as well as working side-by-side with the nation’s favourite redhead Ed Sheeran. Following his highly successful debut ‘Boss (Call Away)’, K Harrison is back with his sophomore single ‘Fire Fire’.

Once again opting for a tropical soundscape, K Harrison delivers a sun-warped Mediterranean-inspired banger, housing a syrupy vocal timbre and breezy flows. Despite its three-minute runtime, “Fire Fire’ is jam-packed with K Harrison’s signature charisma and charm, reminding us why he’s befitting of his ‘Fresh Prince of Derby” moniker.
Bringing the heat to the glass and concrete-bound Derby metropolis, ‘Fire Fire’ couldn’t come at a better time as summer planning, antics and hot weather creep up on the horizon. Standing worlds apart from his fellow Midlands MCs (Sainté, MIST, M1llionz etc.) K Harrison aims to provide party soundtracks, sharp lyricism and pure musical escapism, which is aided by the accompanying visuals that feature model Mina Jay, who has just won the ‘Miss Europe Continental’ title.
‘Fire Fire’ follows directly on from the aforementioned ‘Boss (Call Away)’ which released back in March 2022. The Certi Beats-produced track was an ode to the titular female ‘Boss’. Currently, ‘Boss (Call Away)’ is sitting at well over 62,000 streams on Spotify and 136,000 views on YouTube respectively. Considering ‘Fire Fire’ is a step-up evolution-wise for K Harrison, there’s no telling what he’s capable of.
Outside the studio, K Harrison is anchored by his deep-rooted love for performing — rocking international stages in Europe and Asia. The spitter also fronted the stage at BST Hyde Park festival in front of 70,000 people, performing a full set on the Barclaycard Stage to roaring crowd applause!
Currently, K Harrison is putting the finishing touches on his forthcoming debut LP, and ‘Fire Fire’ is a great taster of we can expect from him in the near future.
