“The rise of Stefflon Don represents a sea of change in British rap” – The Guardian
“Armed with lyrical wit, aggression and star quality.” – XXL
August 10, 2017 – (Hollywood, CA) – After the incredible, break-out success of her critically-acclaimed debut mixtape ‘Real Ting’, STEFFLON DON today announces her first official single ‘Hurtin’ Me‘, featuring French Montana. The track is the first official single from Stefflon Don’s imprint V-VI Records and also serves as her first release under new US label Quality Control. ‘Hurtin’ Me’ is available on all streaming platforms here.
In the space of six short months, the BBC Sound Poll nominee has continued to defy all expectations, easily becoming one of the UK’s most exciting new stars. With over 6 million plays on Spotify alone for ‘Real Ting’, and a magnetic performance of ‘Sixteen Shots’ on Jools Holland, Stefflon Don has continued to buck all convention, seamlessly able to flip between gritty, grime-based bars and Jamaican patois-tinged vocals.
The new single shows off the latter with Stefflon Don trading silky smooth vocals against French Montana’s decisive flow. Produced by Rymez (Wiley, Jeremih, Lil Yachty, Sean Paul), the track is the perfect reflection of her multi-cultural background and influences from her upbringing in Jamaica, London & Holland and is set to become this summer’s biggest dancehall anthem.
Stefflon Don released her debut mixtape ‘Real Ting’ in November, instantly winning nominations for the BBC Sound of 2017, NME Top 100, i-D Class of 2017 as well as coming second in MTV’s annual Brand New. Six months later and the excitement around Stefflon Don has continued to build with recent collaborations including the likes of Raye, Giggs, Charli XCX, Lil Yachty and the international success of her recent Demi Lovato Jax Jones collaboraton ‘Instruction’. With A-List support from the likes of BBC Radio and 1xtra, supports for Migos and Pusha T as well as breakout shows at Wireless Festival & The Great Escape, Stefflon Don is set to become this year’s most exciting artist and the latest British voice to resonant across the globe.
