Recently announced as one of Amazon Music’s ‘Breakthrough UK Artists To Watch 2024’ as well as BBC Radio’s Sound Poll ‘Top 10’, rising 19-year-old artist Sekou has come through to offload an emotive new single ‘let go of me slowly’.

Following on from his early 2024 release, “Crying”, his latest instalment ‘let go of me slowly’ is a new heartbreak anthem single which centres around the breakdown of a romantic relationship. A return to his earlier balladeer offerings, his vocal robust yet set synonymous track showcases his rich tone over laid-back production, offering emotional expression and relatable words.

Speaking on the track, Sekou said: “This song was inspired by a time in my life when I was going through something, and I didn’t know how to express my feelings about it. It took some time but I went back, I re-read the old texts, and I was finally able to put the words down on paper – I knew I needed to be honest. It’s freeing – and it’s supposed to be about getting things off your chest and removing that heavy weight from your shoulders that can sometimes still be there after a relationship breaks down.”
