Today, rising South-Manchester based artist KGOSI, has unveiled his brand new single named, Slide.

Inspired by both Triller and TikTok, KGOSI dropped this song with the aim that it will get people up and moving! Enriched with an up-beat and party-essence, Slide houses a bass-heavy and rhythmic backdrop that accommodates his infectious flow and punching bars.

Speaking on the release, KGOSI commented; “Slide is the product of being up late at night full of creative energy. When I was sent the beat by the producer, within 30 seconds of listening to the beat I had the basic structure of the chorus. I wanted to create a high energy, fun track that everybody could vibe to and do some simple dance moves to. When writing the song I took some inspiration from Kendrick Lamar – ‘Humble’ for the energy in the delivery and Drake – ‘Toosie Slide’ in the way he instructs people to do the dance moves.”
