London rapper Jelani Blackman has collaborated with Biig Piig on his latest single, ‘Rise’. His first release of the year, the new track strips back production and allows both artists to showcase their respective musical ranges.

The chemistry between the two artists across the track works perfectly together. Blackman’s softer delivery on his verse, followed by a melodic hook leads excellently into Biig Piig’s contribution to the track, dovetailing each other effortlessly.

Speaking on the track, Jelani states:

“Being in love and waking up next to the person you wanna be with and the sun’s out is one of the best feelings in the world. Couldn’t have asked anyone better to share this song with; me and Biig Piig met last year at a festival, I think her voice and lyrics bring out all the feeling of that emotion.”

The collaboration marks a new chapter in Blackman’s career as he releases his first output of 2023. After blowing up thanks to his breakout hit ‘Hello’, the artist landed a COLORS performance as well as collaborations with the likes of Kojey Radical and Manga Saint Hilaire. This new sound looks set to bring further success to an already stellar discography.
