ENNY came to my attention on Twitter when someone I followed retweeted a video to her single, ‘Peng Black Girls.’ It was one of those songs that grabbed your attention and it made me delve into her discography a little bit more.
Although I did not write much in 2020, she was an artist I remember seeing and deciding then and there that I had to keep in my back pocket to be shared with those that I wanted to share her music with. There are a few artists that I’ve discovered online through various rabbit holes I’ve gone down that I’ve kept secret. Perhaps they’ll be revealed soon but until then… Shh!
Back to South London rapper & singer ENNY; she has released a brand-new Otis Dominque-directed video for her recent single ‘Same Old‘, the first track taken from her as yet-to-be-announced debut EP.
Matching the track’s jazzy sunny beat, ENNY struts in tempo along London’s streets, immersing herself in the everyday struggles she raps about. Firing off bars on the pain of Brexit, gentrification and complicated love, the visual is a poignant and straightforward reflection of the introspective and outspoken lyricist and rapper that is ENNY.
Speaking on the single, ENNY said: “There are so many beautiful moments and feelings attached to this track from the moment it was created and I hope that anyone that listens to it is able to experience that energy when they hear it.”
Despite ‘Same Old’ only being her fourth single to ever be released, the track has a unique lyricism and blissful chorus that is already helping to underline its significance as one of the best British releases this year so far.
Can’t wait to hear her debut EP!
