After teaming up with Charli XCX for her latest single ‘I, U, US’ and Stormzy for ‘Ambition’, the South London rising star adds to her impressive resume by hopping on a track with Queensbridge legend Nas.

The track, entitled ‘War’, comes from the soundtrack of The Birth Of A Nation, a forthcoming film about Nat Turner, an enslaved man who led a rebellion against his captors in 1831 in Virginia.

A powerful contribution, the track that has the teenage pop prodigy and her veteran collaborator letting out a cry for rebellion that is as relevant as ever in our own turbulent times.
