It follows on from June single ‘Behave’ which was BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Record of the Week
Exciting UK talent MORGAN returns with new single ‘Nobody Else’, a collaboration with hot London rapper Kasien, out now via Major Tom’s Records.
‘Nobody Else’ channels an upbeat Afro-swing and R&B energy, combining MORGAN’s seductive vocals with Kasien’s slick tones over a fluttering production. The video sees MORGAN getting ready to paint the town red in a flamboyant brightly-coloured outfit. Kasien also stars as a performer in an intimate club setting, where MORGAN joins him with a live band.
It follows ‘Behave’, MORGAN’s recent drill-tinged single in collaboration with fellow rising artist Jevon. The track was hailed as BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Record Of The Week by Ace, as well as seeing Capital Xtra’s Robert Bruce feature the track as his Homegrown Track Of The Day. The infectious song has been playlisted by Kiss Fresh, receiving additional support from BBC Radio 1, No Signal, Capital FM, Apple Music 1 and BBC Sounds.
“‘Nobody Else’ has so many meaningful messages,” MORGAN explains. “Let’s face it… the world has been a pretty dark place recently. When Kasien and I got in we knew we wanted to write a song that everyone could hopefully take some positive energy from and remind people that we should all love ourselves; and treat our mind and bodies with the respect it deserves. Kasien is an incredible artist and I absolutely loved writing this song with him – lyrically and melodically he pushes boundaries… We need more artists like him out there. Karma Kid knew exactly what we wanted to achieve in terms of the production – the beat reflects the message of the song perfectly – bright and atmospheric. This is a super important song to us so I hope you love it.
“Writing this song with Morgan was a dream,” Kasien adds. “It was easy going back and forth on lyric and melody ideas; and she actually recorded most of it in one take which was crazy to witness! I think we achieved what we set out to do which is to make a song about uplifting people, loving yourself and having fun. I think it’s very much needed in the world right now. I hope people enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.”
Just 20-years-old, MORGAN burst onto the scene in 2019 when she signed to Rudimental’s Major Tom’s label and featured on their track ‘Mean That Much’ alongside Preditah. A whirlwind couple of years since has seen her drop debut EP Alien, perform three times on the BBC Live Lounge and co-write as well as feature on Rudimental smash ‘Be The One’ alongside Digga D, a single that has over 20 million streams and counting. Elsewhere, she also featured on RV’s latest mixtape Rico Vondelle alongside the likes of Headie One, Abra Cadabra, Yxng Bane and more. In September, MORGAN is making her festival debut at Tokyo World.
Growing up between London and Nigeria, Kasien has received support from a wide range of cultural tastemakers, including i-D, Dazed, Complex, The Fader and GRM Daily. He has toured with the likes of Slowthai and Bakar, featured on records with Mike Skinner, Flohio, Cadenza, and also has a single with fellow Londoner Master Peace.
‘Nobody Else’ sees MORGAN tap into her trademark sound with yet another stunning collaboration.
