Hackney rapper ShaSimone has shared the visual for her track ‘Top 5’, featuring incredible footage of her touring the world. Premiered by The Fader, the video includes never-seen-before clips of Sha’s Glastonbury & Rolling Loud debuts, and stellar performing alongside Dave at his sold-out O2 arena show. 

Landing in the wake of her highly anticipated debut EP, ‘Simma Down’ released via ShaSimone/Loud and Clear Entertainment, this release is a visual time-capsule of Sha’s biggest career moments to date – including a glimpse into intimate moments backstage with friends and family. Deeply protective of her creative process, Sha allows her fans to see her in action while recording in the studio.  

‘Simma Down’ includes just two additional artists; Alté superstar BOJ and UK rap legend Avelino on ‘Ten Toes’ and ‘Future’ respectively. As well as those impressive co-signs, she has continued to prove her work ethic having featured on Lethal Bizzle’s ‘Dapper Dan Remix’ and CLIPZ’s ‘No Time’, alongside Nia Archives, Cristale and Beenie Man, on top of her own busy release schedule. 

From the beginning, ShaSimone was destined to make music. She grew up writing poetry and in her teen years went back and forth with friends, sending raps to each other over BlackBerry Messenger. It’s hard to believe that she only started making music recently, after spending years working as a hairstylist. It was in 2021 that ShaSimone broke into the limelight, becoming one of a select few featured artists on Dave’s #1 album We’re All In This Together -rapping alongsideDave on the ethereal “Both Sides Of A Smile”withJames Blake. A dream come true for the Hackney- hailing rapper.
