Shakka has enlisted the skills of Washington, DC rapper Goldlink for his new single “Solo.” The British R&B vocalist, producer and hitmaking songwriter’s self-penned track is available now via Base ‘N Rebulz’ / Marathon Artists and was produced by Londoner Komenz. “Solo” follows previous single “When You Pull Up,” and comes after Shakka’s recent Grammy Award win for his songwriting on Dua Lipa’s chart-topping album Future Nostalgia.
West London-born Shakka has had a string of mainstream hits including the platinum selling single “Man Down” featuring AlunaGeorge. He’s collaborated with the likes of Young Thug, Tinie Tempah, Sigma and more; his songwriting efforts have seen his distinctive lyricism shine through on hits by Sean Paulft. Stefflon Don and Ella Eyre; and he has won two MOBO Awards for R&B/Soul Act.
Shakka spent the pre-pandemic portion of 2020 hidden away in the hills of Los Angeles beginning work on his album with the likes of Al Shux(Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Snoop Dogg), Jonah Christian (Snoh Aalegra, Anderson. Paak, SiR) and Karl Rubin (Swae Lee, 6lack), seeing Shakka return to his R&B roots and lining him up to take his rightful place within the current R&B renaissance. With over 250 million streams to his name to-date, Shakka continues his ascent gearing up for the release of his long-awaiting debut album later this year.
