Koffee is set to release her new single 'Pressure' this Friday. Grammy youngster Koffee ought to become our ‘quarantine queen’ for giving us songs to cope with and combat the slew of emotions that comes with staying inside. Her latest single 'Lockdown' is still climbing the charts and comforting lovers who’ve stayed longing for days “when di quarantine ting done.”
She continues her prevailing streak offering hope to another suffering set with the launch of the track ‘Under Pressure.’ While turning her sights and lyrical prowess to the state of those struggling within this ‘new normal’, the 20-year-old will premiere her new single on July 31st, and is guaranteed to reach many hurting hearts and minds.
With some of her performances already on Youtube, the music isn’t new, however Koffee—who’s instructed earlier to “trust the process”—is tapping into developing momentum because it’s the most bizarre year on record.
As upheavals, afflictions, and problems of every kind lurk, the militant messenger spits fiery lines of encouragement to her friends and fans – “Lawd a mercy, dis cyah get no worse, haffi call it a curse cah mi heart it a hurt me/ Call it cerassee because from mi birth ah di first it ah feel like di Father desert me/ But all when di pressure erup’ mi neva give up, no no we neva give in/ Mi ah send up a prayer fi di better living/ Ah cyah bawl so ah betta mi sing…”
The relatable track is sure to rise to anthem status, similar to the global smash 'Toast,' that got everyone grooving and talking all things gratitude. It’s also one of 'Rapture' crooner’s concert mainstays since 2019, making the roster at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire within the U.K. and 2019 Summerjam, and the studio version is overdue.
'Under Pressure' was also performed during Koffee’s exclusive Thom Browne online exhibition for Highsnobiety, a partnership that came about after he designed her three-piece Grammy suit. While it’s unclear when we’ll get actual visuals, we’re sure to be reciting the verses long before then.
