Kemi Ade

Unlike others who may stumble into their chosen profession later in life, South London’s Kemi Ade has been sure of her path from the get-go: “All I’ve known is wanting to sing – it’s like a choice that was already made for me.” This self-assuredness is wholly evident on her latest single “HONEST.” – her voice effortlessly ebbs and flows over a funk-inflected R&B beat cooked up by Nosaapollo. Listen to it below and you’ll soon find yourself floating away.

“HONEST.” is the first song from her upcoming EP of the same name, so stay tuned for that. In the meantime, check out her 2017 EP Ownesty below.
