Biig Piig is taking time for self-care on ‘Don’t Turn Around’

The video follows the release of her dynamic single ‘Switch’ and sees her demonstrate her genuine star potential.

Multi-lingual singer and poet Biig Piig has been busy during quarantine. When she hasn’t been giving Spanish lessons on IG Live, making her tv debut on Jools Holland, taking part in BLM protests or organising a socially-distanced gig in aid of Refuge and Trans Women of Colour Survival Fund she has been working on new music.

The result of her consistent studio sessions was ‘Switch’, an emphatic drum and bass-influenced cut and now it has been followed up by a equally dancy record that’s cut from a different cloth.

‘Don’t Turn Around’ is her self-described “post breakup, pre glow up tune” and the glamourous disco-pop anthem signposts her evolution from underground sensation to genuine star.

On the new cut Biig Piig said, “My post breakup, pre glow up tune; finally getting to confidence through self-love and letting go of toxic relationships. JD Reid showed me a song he had saved in his sample collection called ‘Love for the Sake of Love’ by Claudja Barry. The energy of that track instantly just made me wanna move so badly. You might have heard the sample before in Montell Jordan’s iconic tune ‘Get It on Tonite’, but it slaps every time and the feeling Claudja Barry captures is absolutely timeless.”
