It’s the King of Drill’s at his finest.
Headie One is on a tear in 2020. Earlier this year he shared his collaborative EP with Fred Again ‘GANG’ featuring the likes of Jamie XX. He’s kept up his momentum and continued to push the sonic boundaries of drill in his new album ‘EDNA’.
Named after his late mother, ‘Edna’ is Headie at his most vulnerable. It sees the London spitter link up with Drake, Future, Aitch and more across one of the heaviest feature lists of 2020.
Speaking on the decision to name the album after his mother, Headie said, “As a debut album, there’s no one else I could really give the name to. She’s a huge motivation behind my journey and my music. She keeps me going.”
Earlier this week statues of Headie One appeared across London ahead of his album.
Headie also shared two new videos alongside the new album ‘Princess Cuts’ featuring UK rap duo Young T & Bugsey and ‘Parlez-Vouz Anglais’ featuring Aitch.
