Following an incredibly successful year, that saw him crowned the biggest-selling U.K. breakthrough act of 2020, British music sensation KSI drops his brand new single, Patience – an epic, upbeat dance/pop collaboration with YUNGBLUD and Polo G.
Produced by Matt Schwartz (Kylie Minogue, Olly Murs, Lawson) and serving as the follow up to Don’t Play, the slick, experimental crossover tracks undeniably plays to each of the artists strengths, with its alluring, hypnotic melody and disco-inspired beat instantly pulling focus, and transporting listeners into an altogether alternate, alt-pop universe.
“We been goin’ through changes…”
“This track is very fitting for everything we are going through right now and what we’ve all been experiencing collectively during this lockdown.” KSI says of the track. “With the energy of YUNGBLUD and the style of Polo G, I bring to you another banger for people to enjoy.”
“I’m so incredibly proud to have both of them on this record with me. I knew that I wanted to collaborate with YUNGBLUD when I watched him perform for the first time at last year’s NME Awards. Together with Polo G, we’ve created an absolute smash and cannot wait until we’re able to perform it live together on stage, it’s going to be special.”
YUNGBLUD adds: “KSI is an artist who came into music from a non-traditional route. Something I relate to a lot! He had something to say when no one would listen, and he ended up speaking and connecting to millions of people and they spoke back… that ideology is exactly what YUNGBLUD is about!”
“Of course, we were going to work together in some shape or form. He has become a really close friend of mine and my favourite thing in the world is to make music with my friends. Having Polo on it is an absolute honour, he’s a true fucking punk, his individuality shines and I am a massive fan. This song is about needing time to process what is going on around you, about needing a second to just exist and be. You don’t have to know what’s next, just try and be present every day. I think this is a message we can all relate to right now.”
