Rita Ora released You Only Love Me via 360 Magazine.

Rita Ora – You Only Love Me

2023 marks the dawn of a new era for one of the most successful British female artists of the 21st century, Rita Ora, as she releases brand new single “You Only Love Me.” 

Co-written by Rita and produced by Lewis Thompson, “You Only Love Me” is inspired by her personal experience of feeling vulnerable at the very start of her romantic journey. Underpinned by love and passion, the song opens with a voice memo from Oscar and BAFTA award-winning filmmaker Taika Waititi“You Only Love Me” is an infectious, upbeat pop anthem guaranteed to soundtrack fans’ very own love stories and be a floor filler for months to come.

Rita says: “With ‘You Only Love Me’ and my upcoming album, I wanted to capture the vulnerability I’ve experienced as I opened myself up to love and entered a new phase of life. Learning to let go of the past to make way for new experiences is a deeply personal process, and one I felt compelled to document through my music – the journey was not always easy, but I’ve come out of it stronger and filled with more love than I ever thought possible.”

“You Only Love Me” is the first track to be lifted from the internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter’s highly anticipated upcoming album – a deeply personal body of work intrinsically linked to a new chapter in Ora’s life and career. It is also Rita’s first release since inking a partnership with BMG, which will see her own all her future master recordings and enjoy artistic control in a way that she hasn’t had previously. Next Wednesday, 1st February, Rita will make her debut performance of the track on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

The accompanying music video for “You Only Love Me, directed by acclaimed creative Charlie Sarsfield and shot in the LA suburbs, premiered globally on MTV today and is one of Rita’s favourites made to date. Depicting a fictional wedding through the lens of a Stepford Housewives meetsAlice in Wonderland style narrative, it features hyperreal scenes of a bride’s big day turned tumultuously upside-down, (with overzealous “badmaids,” the venue going up in flames and more), and cameos from well-wishers Kristen StewartLindsay LohanJodie Turner-Smith, Chelsea Handler, Addison Rae, cake delivery boy Alexander Stewart and fairy godmother Sharon Stone.

Rita Ora’s multi-platinum music career has won her commercial and critical acclaim with 13 UK Top 10 singles and four UK Number One singles. She holds the record for the most UK Top 10 singles by a British female artist. In the US alone, Rita’s acclaimed singles and star-studded collaborations have earned her a #3 Billboard Hot 100 song, 7 Top 10 hits on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs Chart, 5 of which reached #1, and 6 Top 20 singles on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart.

RITA ORA’S “YOU ONLY LOVE ME” IS AVAILABLE ACROSS ALL PLATFORMS HERE.

Stormzy new album release via 360 magazine.

STORMZY – THIS IS WHAT I MEAN

British musician Stormzy has released his highly anticipated third album, This Is What I Mean.

Over the course of his expansive, heartfelt and defiantly sprawling new album, the BRIT and Ivor Novello award-winning Stormzy has delivered an undeniable classic; effortlessly condensing any number of disparate styles and genres into music which bravely broaches any gap between modern Black British music, soul and hip-hop.

Executively Produced by British producer PRGRSHN, the album includes the top 10 single Hide & Seek; an emotive, soulful and ethereal offering and his latest release Firebabe; a beautifully delicate and deeply touching sound. An array of incredible musicians are also scattered throughout the record including vocal appearances from the likes of Sampha, Jacob Collier, Debbie and more, all of which are listed here.

A bold and courageous leap forward from his critically acclaimed previous two #1 records, ‘Gang Signs & Prayer and ‘Heavy Is The Head, this isn’t music simply for the pop charts but rather, an intimate and sincere love letter to music. He speaks on forgiving his absent father on the mellifluous ‘Please’ and refers to his challenges with paranoia, depression and self-doubt on penultimate track, ‘I Got My Smile Back’ – which also features a guest vocal from the incomparable India.Arie. It’s a record which showcases intensely personal and lyrical themes which in turn lay bare the vulnerabilities, regret, frailties, healing, joy and triumph in a manner and to an extent that reframes the notion of what rap artists traditionally might do and be.

In a letter posted to his social media pages last night, Stormzy wrote:

When Tyler, The Creator released the masterpiece that is ‘IGOR’ he shared a message with it and I wanted to do the same but I was hesitant. Mainly because I would love for my music to do all the talking but I thought I’d share this message anyway.

I do a lot of interviews and I forget that everything I say will be shared far and wide, which is probably naive of me. Things that I say in real life don’t feel the same when I see it in text. I feel like I overshare, which makes me feel naked at times. But I do it so that you guys can understand me a bit better and to give the art that I make some context. I’m never ever purposely trying to defy genres or go against the grain. I’m never tryna do what is unexpected of me or what is expected of me. If I rap for 7 minutes it’s because in my spirit, in that moment, I just really wanted to fucking rap. If I sing my heart out then it’s because my soul just absolutely had to. I love music. I love, love loveeeee music. I will rap for the rest of my life, I will sing for the rest of my life, I will make art for the rest of my life. And at no point will I ever do any of those things for any other reason than I JUST WANTED TO AND IT JUST FELT GOOD. I am not a calculated mastermind with the ability to gauge what kind of music to make and when I’ll make it, I literally just feel and then let it out. People been tryna box me in for years but I hope this chapter at least makes my biggest critic say “hey, he’s shit but he loves music and I guess he’s gonna do whatever he likes” lol

I pray you listen to this album in your own time, whenever you can. Listen to it properly with no distractions. I pray you listen to this album with an open heart and if you hate it after I promise to God I’m perfectly fine with that, I’m just grateful that you listened with openness. I pray that it moves you and captures your imagination. And I pray that someone, somewhere, feels it. 

This Is What I Mean.

And it’s what I’ve always meant. 🙏🏿

God bless. Stormz x”

The confidence which drove the album stemmed from a deeper and far more spiritual place than we have seen from Stormzy previously. For all the success and awards that he has accrued during his brief, meteoric career, the lockdown that ensued from the coronavirus pandemic gave him one commodity he’d long lacked: time. And thanks to his sense of accomplishment following Glastonbury he was, for the first time, in a position to make the most of it.

Much of the creative energy that shaped the album emerged from a Stormzy music camp in Osea Island – a remote island in the Essex estuary that’s only accessible via a Roman Causeway for four hours a day at low tide. Surrounded by leading-edge producers and musicians each and every morning they would eat and pray together and then spend the rest of the time driven to creative heights by each other’s talents.

When you hear about music camps they always sound intense and sombre,” says Stormzy. ““People saying: “We need to make an album.” “We need to make some hit records.” But this felt beautifully free. We’re all musicians but we weren’t always doing music. Some days we played football or walked around taking pictures. And the bi-product to that was very beautiful music. Because when you marry that ethos with world class musicians and the best producers, writers and artists in the world, and we’re in one space, that’s a recipe for something that no one can really imagine. You can’t even calculate what that’s going to come up with. And it came up with a big chunk of this album.

The net result is that while ‘This Is What I Mean sounds very much like Stormzy, it sounds like no Stormzy album you have ever heard before.

Reebok and Maharishi sneaker collaboration via 360 MAGAZINE.

Reebok × Maharishi

Reebok and London-based streetwear label Maharishi announced their second collaborative project, the Maharishi x Reebok LT Court Hemp, calling on the plant fabric that’s been a mainstay in Maharishi collections since the 1990s. The Maharishi x Reebok LT Court Hemp ($120, GZ9587) is available October 28 exclusively from Maharishi before its wider global release on November 7 from Reebok.com and select fashion retailers.

Founded in 1994 by Hardy Blechman, Maharishi is defined by its ‘pacifist military design’ aesthetic and a strong respect for nature and utilitarian design. Following their spring 2022 collaboration on Reebok’s Classic Leather AZ, this next instalment continues to showcase the brands’ mutual respect for heritage sports footwear.

“This is yet another great opportunity for us to delve into Reebok’s rich archive of classics,” commented Maharishi founder, Hardy Blechman.

Built with an army green rubber outsole, chalk midsole, and an off-white hemp fabric upper, Maharishi’s LT Court Hemp offers a natural, understated take on the 40-year-old court model.

“Hemp belongs to one of Earth’s most versatile, resilient, and advanced plant families, which makes it particularly meaningful to us as a medium for product creation,” explained Blechman, alluding to Maharishi’s dedication to hemp fabrication and use of other organic materials.

Additional key design elements for the shoe include a soft suede heel tab and terry lining, Maharishi all-over logo arch bandage, Maharshi logo window box, and OG LT Court components like a deconstructed toe box and cup sole tooling.

“The LT court is a great court shoe from Reebok’s ’80s archives,” concluded Blechman. “By utilizing hemp and a minimalistic design, the piece stays true to both Maharishi and classic Reebok styling.”

The story is told visually from Maharishi’s studio in Soho, with campaign imagery (HERE) featuring Shy FX, a legendary producer in the UK jungle music scene in which Reebok has been long intertwined.

The Maharishi x Reebok LT Court Hemp ($120, GZ9587) is available in unisex sizing October 28 exclusively from Maharishi before its wider global release on November 7 from Reebok.com and select fashion retailers.

Ferrari Testa Rossa J inside 360 MAGAZINE

Ferrari Testa Rossa J

The Little Car Company is excited to announce that the Ferrari Testa Rossa J is on permanent display at Selfridges’ flagship department store, in London. In partnership with the luxury Oxford Street store, The Little Car Company’s limited-edition vehicle is on show for all shoppers to see up close.

Presented on its own unique display installation in the Technology department on the lower ground floor, the Testa Rossa J is exhibited in a beautiful historic paint scheme incorporating an Argento Nurburgring (Silver) body, with a Rosso Mugello (Red) livery, which takes up to 160 hours to complete by hand. Inside, the car is exquisitely trimmed in Bordeaux leather, from the same tanneries that supply Ferrari for their current road cars, featuring black piping and tone on tone stitching.

Strictly limited to 299 vehicles, Ferrari has led every aspect of the project, in collaboration with The Little Car Company, a UK-based firm specialising in the production of electric scaled cars. Developed and handcrafted from the original drawings held by Ferrari Classiche, with design oversight from Ferrari’s Centro Stile, the intricate chassis of the 250 Testa Rossa was scanned and digitally recreated before being scaled down 25%.

Visitors to Selfridges can view the 75% scale vehicle up close and use the material sample pod to view a selection of the many vehicles’ leather and paint samples. Ferrari’s Classiche department carried out extensive research into all the liveries that have adorned the 250 Testa Rossa throughout its racing career, allowing prospective clients to choose from 14 historical liveries, 53 bodywork colours and additional personalised racing liveries, all authentically in keeping with Ferrari style.

Shoppers can enquire with one of the store’s friendly sales team about reserving an exclusive build slot on the Ferrari Testa Rossa J, as well as any of The Little Car Company’s other products.

Ben Hedley, CEO of The Little Car Company, said: “We are thrilled and extremely proud to launch our very own display at Selfridges’ iconic flagship store, on Oxford Street.

“To have the car on display for all visitors to see, with the stamp of approval from one of the world’s most celebrated luxury department stores, is a huge privilege. This collaboration demonstrates the remarkable quality that the Ferrari Testa Rossa J exhibits, and the phenomenal level of detail that goes into every car we handcraft.”

On every element of the Testa Rossa J, Ferrari and The Little Car Company have ensured the product is as true to the original car as possible. The steering wheel is supplied by Nardi, makers of the original steering wheel, and the same steering and suspension geometry have been replicated, giving the electric car authentic handling. The body is also made of hand-formed aluminium, which goes through the same process used on the 250 Testa Rossa.

As a nod to the current generation of road cars, the paint is the same as that applied to Ferrari’s current range of cars, as is the front badge. The pedals are from the F8 Tributo and the tyres are supplied by Pirelli, Ferrari’s official technical partner, fitted on the handmade 12-inch wire wheels. Next to the repurposed instruments on the vehicle’s interior dashboard – which now show battery temperature and charge level dials – is a beautifully designed Manettino, inspired by that used in the Ferrari 812 Superfast, allowing the driver to change the driving mode of the car.

To cater for drivers of all ages and abilities, four driving modes have been carefully developed to make the driving experience as safe as possible:

• NOVICE MODE: 1kW / 24 km/h

• COMFORT MODE: 4kW / 40 km/h

• SPORT MODE: 10 kW / 80 km/h

• RACE MODE: 12kW / 80 km/h

The three batteries powering the electric engine are positioned at the front of the car, and provide approximately 90 km range, depending on driving style.

Tyga's costume for Halloween shot by Vaughn Lowery of 360 MAGAZINE

MOST POPULAR HALLOWEEN COSTUMES

With Halloween just around the corner, it’s the ideal time to start planning the perfect costume for the occasion. Fashion expert Maria Loizou from Karen Millen predicts this year’s hottest pop-culture themed Halloween costumes inspired by the most memorable moments from 2022 so far.  

COSTUMES FOR WOMEN

Wednesday Addams from The Addams Family 

With the autumn release of Netflix’s new show Wednesday, we can anticipate many costumes replicating the Halloween icon Wednesday Addams, especially as the phrase ‘Wednesday Addams costume’ receives an average of 58,000 monthly Google searches worldwide. Recreate this look by pairing a printed black dress with a white pointed collar, with Wednesday’s signature braids.  

Wanda Maximoff from Wandavision 

Marvel’s Wanda Maximoff, otherwise known as Scarlet Witch, is another one of this year’s most sought-after costumes, with the phrase ‘Scarlet Witch costume’ receiving 50,000 monthly Google searches worldwide. All you need is a red cape and dress, along with a signature Scarlet Witch headpiece. Incorporating a red leather top, corset or catsuit can really help in emulating the Wanda Maximoff look.  

Julia Fox 

Alternatively, dressing as Julia Fox is the perfect 2022 Halloween costume that will definitely be popular this season. The Uncut Gems actress is used to turning heads due to her bold and daring fashion choices, so why not demand attention this Halloween by rocking Julia Fox-inspired double-denim and a dramatic smoky fox eye look.  

COSTUMES FOR MEN

Maverick from Top Gun 

Tom Cruise’s Maverick is one of the most popular men’s Halloween costumes we can expect to see this Halloween. This year’s box office hit Top Gun: Maverick reignited interest in the classic 80s film, sparking 12,000 average monthly searches for ‘Top Gun costume’ worldwide. Fake moustaches, bomber jackets and aviator glasses make the ideal, minimal-effort costume, perfect for those obsessed with the franchise. 

Eddie Munson from Stranger Things 

Stranger Things has taken 2022 by storm, so we can anticipate many costumes inspired by the residents of the town Hawkins this year and more specifically, new fan-favourite Eddie Munson. Series four introduced us to the Metallica-playing, Dungeons and Dragons-obsessed Eddie, leader of the Hellfire Club. Eddie’s grunge look can easily be replicated with a Hellfire Club shirt, ripped black jeans and a denim vest. Currently, the term ‘Hellfire Club shirt’ receives 41,000 average monthly searches across the globe. 

House of the Dragon 

Arguably one of the biggest and most-anticipated shows of the year, House of the Dragon will likely be among the most popular Halloween looks this year. Dressed in a long black robe, white-blonde wig and equipped with a plastic sword, we are sure to see many Daemon Targaryen lookalikes this Halloween season. 

COSTUMES FOR COUPLES

Elvis and Priscilla 

Elvis and Priscilla Presley will undoubtedly be one of the most popular couples costumes this Halloween. Austin Butler perfectly portrayed the King of Rock in Baz Luhrmann’s recent Elvis biopic, so much so that searches for ‘Elvis costume’ have increased 335% worldwide over the last 12 months. Replicate Priscilla’s iconic look with a 60s-inspired mini dress and bouffant hair, and style a leather jumpsuit and gelled back hair for the signature Elvis image.  

Barbie and Ken 

As a result of those pictures of Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling on the set of Greta Gerwig’s upcoming Barbie film, combined with the recent ‘Barbiecore’ trend, we can expect to see many couples dressed as the iconic plastic duo this Halloween. Whether it is matching neon rollerblading outfits or hot pink cowboy costumes, searches for ‘Barbie Halloween costumes’ reach an average of 15,000 each month worldwide. 

Danny and Sandy 

We can also expect to see couple’s costumes from Grease this Halloween. Danny and Sandy from the popular 70s musical have always been a classic go-to couples Halloween costumes and this year will be no exception, especially to honour the late Olivia Newton-John. Black leather leggings or trousers, red heels and matching red lipstick complete this look for Sandy, with Danny needing only a leather jacket and slicked back hair, with an optional D.I.Y Rydell cardigan. 

Cast of Euphoria 

This Halloween, we can also expect to see several Euphoria-themed costumes. Since the release of season two earlier this year, fans are still talking about the show’s iconic makeup and fashion choices, which make for perfect group Halloween costumes, full of glitter, vibrant colours and Y2K fashion trends. 

Sanderson sisters from Hocus Pocus 

Nothing says Halloween like watching the classic film Hocus Pocus, especially as the long-awaited sequel arrives to Disney Plus on September 30th. For friendship groups of three, the Sanderson sisters are the perfect trio to dress as this Halloween, especially as searches for ‘Hocus Pocus costumes’ have risen 317% over the past three months globally.

NYC DOMINATES GLOBAL LIST OF MILLIONAIRES

The USA dominates the world’s Top 20 cities with the most millionaires in 2022, with New York taking the crown with 345,600 millionaires, and five other American cities —­­ San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, and Dallas ­— securing places on the coveted world’s wealthiest cities ranking. Tokyo is in 2nd place with 304,900 resident high-net-worth individuals worth over USD 1 million, and London, the wealthiest city in the world for many years, drops to 4th place below the San Francisco Bay Area with just 272,400 millionaires, according to the latest Henley Global Citizens Report, which tracks private wealth migration trends worldwide.

Two Chinese cities, Beijing (9th) and Shanghai (10th), make it into the Top 10, and Switzerland and Australia each manage to secure two top city spots, with Sydney (11th), Zurich (15th), Melbourne (17th), and Geneva (19th) all making the cut. Singapore (5th), Hong Kong (SAR China) (12th), Frankfurt (13th), Toronto (14th), Seoul (16th), and finally Paris, plummeting 3 places to 20th, make up the rest of the 2022 ranking.

The report features exclusive data from the global wealth intelligence firm New World Wealth, and includes the five wealthiest cities in each major region, and the 25 fastest growing cities in terms of millionaire growth.

Dr. Juerg Steffen, CEO of Henley & Partners, points out that 14 of the Top 20 are in countries that host investment migration programs. “The right to live, work, study, and invest in leading international wealth hubs such as New YorkLondonSingaporeSydney, and Toronto can be secured via residence by investment. Being able to relocate yourself, your family, or your business to a more favorable city or have the option to choose between multiple different residences across the world is an increasingly important aspect of international wealth and legacy planning for private clients.”

The millionaire populations of Dubai, Mumbai, and Shenzhen are expected to break into the Top 20 wealthiest cities by 2030, according to Andrew Amoils, Head of Research at New World Wealth. “Cities with strong oil and gas industries are performing especially well this year, including the likes of Riyadh, Sharjah, Luanda, Abu Dhabi, Doha, and Lagos. Others on the fastest-growing list include Lugano, a Swiss hotspot for affluent retirees, Bengaluru, the ‘Silicon Valley of India’, and Hangzhou, one of China’s most scenic cities.”

Commenting on the latest Henley Global Citizens Report, Dr. José Caballero, Senior Economist at the IMD World Competitiveness Center, says “quality of life is a fundamental driver of global mobility, and for business executives, high living standards and effective institutions are significant city drawcards.”

Dr. Steffen agrees, saying “cities are centers of opportunity, innovation, prosperity, and culture. We’ve seen record growth this year, with more and more high-net-worth investors exploring investment migration solutions that offer location fluidity and optionality, enabling them to live and conduct their businesses across a wide range of different jurisdictions and cities.”

Gigi Hadid Brand Launch

Gigi Hadid Wears Guest in Residence While Out In New York.

Gigi Hadid has announced the launch of Guest in Residence, her inaugural direct-to-consumer, luxury, cashmere brand. Hadid is the Founder and Creative Director of the brand, conceived to honor and evoke a fresh appreciation and respect for the timeless designs, materials and craftsmanship of heritage heirlooms for all generations.

The brand’s name, unsurprisingly, was inspired by Hadid’s rigorous travel during her illustrious modeling career, which has quite literally taken her all over the globe – from Des Moines, Iowa to the Island nation of Nauru to Antarctica – between the fixed circuit of New York, London, Paris, and Milan. “Reflecting on years of travel and transience, away from creature comforts, no matter where I was a guest in residence – I always managed to find a home in myself – my internal residence of sorts. I strived to remain grounded despite the existential feeling that we are guests on this planet, and in our bodies. That we are guests when we travel. That we are guests in our clothes. That those clothes have passed through hands and may have had previous lives – and quite certainly will have future lives – cloaking other guests in the revolving, intergenerational door of life. The genesis of Guest in Residence is to honor past heirlooms and give life to new ones spanning generations,” said Hadid.

Second-hand, cashmere jumpers handed down by her multinational parents when she moved to New York in her teens, were always cozy, portable keepsakes for Hadid while on the road perfecting the art of sleeping on planes. Each piece had its own history, its own smell, its own personality injected with whomever had last worn it, and allowed Hadid to adopt a cherished family heirloom and make it hers. A sweater, to Hadid, isn’t clothing; it is a story, a marker of time and memory, and something that contextualizes her world. This is what inspired Hadid to design thoughtful knitwear that anyone can wear, style, love, and ultimately pass on to their beloved; mother to daughter or chosen family to chosen family.

A symbol of elegance and refined comfort, cashmere has long been viewed as a luxury, unattainable for some. Hadid wanted to shift this paradigm using both her world-class fashion experience, and quirky sense of style, to create a fresh offering with more democratized pricing offering an average price point of $300. The Guest in Residence core collection dubbed ‘funky classics’ by Hadid, are 100% cashmere featuring timeless, often unisex, silhouettes including cashmere jersey sets, joggers, hoodies, robes, beanies, scarves and socks in calming palettes of almond, cream, tumeric, navy, black and steel. Some pieces are sizeless and there is a cheerful infusion of vibrant contrasting colors of sunflower, royal blue, cherry, bubblegum, lime, and lavender. Hadid hopes this will encourage playful self expression and personal style twists.

For the launch campaign, Hadid chose a team from the powerful new generation of talent emerging in fashion, including photographer Pablo Di Prima and stylist Gabriella Karefa-Johnson. Hadid believes they embrace new ideas and self-expression, while understanding the historical importance of cultural heritage. Titled, Yearbook, the campaign is a sort of visual time capsule – memorializing a time and place for a community. Holding the conviction that humans better with age, Hadid selected 100 people from infants to centenarians to illustrate Guest in Residence’s timelessness and intergenerationality. Many of the models featured are family and friends of Hadid, including Tonne Goodman, Grace Coddington, Luiz Mattos (Hadid’s life-long agent) and Waris Ahluwalia.

The Guest in Residence collection will be available at www.guestinresidence.com in the US at 9AM EST on September 7th, 2022. On September, 11th, 2022, Hadid will open the doors to her Feel Shop pop-up located at 12 Mercer Street promising surprises for all guests! The Guest in Residence collection will be available globally on www.guestinresidence.com on September 12th, 2022 at 9AM CET.

In little over a year, London based vocalist and visual artist Willow Kayne has enjoyed a prodigious ascent to the pinnacle of pop music’s more daring corners. Her postmodern approach to songwriting was rewarded in 2021 with Willow receiving the Ivor Novello Rising Star award, setting her on a path to achieve greatness early in her career. Her riotously received debut EP Playground Antics was the catalyst for an explosion of rave reviews, while with live shows and online previews, she has shared a glimpse of the soundtrack to her ever-expanding sonic world. With recent singles “Final Notice” and “White City,” Willow shared more propulsive and surreal facets of her arsenal, while with the release of new track “Rat Race” today, Willow delves deep into introspection in her own unique way.

Opening to jagged yet muted guitar tones, Willow questions her own path towards her goals – using a slack yet melodic flow to express her distaste with how uncertain her path is. Her lyricism is refreshingly appropriate for today’s current landscape, with lyrics such as “I’m only seeing successes, the others don’t reach For You page’, referencing the industry’s obsession with social media as a means of staying  relevant. “Rat Race’s” chorus acts as a sonic unburdening of the mental constraints that are binding Willow, with a balmy, uplifting instrumental line that soothes the bite of the track’s previous spiked-edged momentum. Willow’s vocal elevates; fully opening up and surrendering to the ridiculousness of the industry she finds herself in and contemporary adult life. 

On the track, Willow says: “I wrote ‘Rat Race’ when I was going through a little crisis; the music business sometimes makes me feel like I am a lottery ticket among millions of others. To sum it up briefly, it’s about the moment when you ask yourself “Am I doing this right? Or better yet, what AM I doing?”

Nice little existential crisis this one.”

An ode to the confidence in her own abilities, but lack of trust in the process to strive for access to her dreams, Willow Kayne’s “Rat Race” is an internal look into the anxieties of one of 2022’s most expansive pop talents. An artist who has encapsulated a no holds barred attitude to her own conviction since the outset of her career, “Rat Race” is a refreshing change of pace from Willow, who lays all her doubts on the line – still with a sense of buoyant determination and relatability at all times.

Willow Kayne will also headline a very special multi-sensory show at London’s XOYO  on September 29, 2022, following her sold out dual headline dates earlier in the year, as well as triumphant set at this year’s Glastonbury Festival and London’s All Points East festival with stylistic idols GorillazTickets on sale now HERE.
