Rising UK rapper SONGER has just released his highly-anticipated album SKALA. The 22-year-old artist has already made waves in the music industry with his collaborations with grime legend D Double E, national radio and press features, and soon-to-be-headlining performance at Reading Festival. SONGER’s latest album continues his authentic artistry, showcasing his journey towards a new mindset and appreciation for life’s simplicities.

The album includes 16 tracks demonstrating SONGER’s lyrical eloquence and sentimental depth. The project includes hit singles like “Skala,” “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” “That’s Money,” and “Golden (Soul Food).” These tracks have garnered extensive support from BBC Radio 1, 1xtra’s DJ Target & Sian Anderson, NME, and many other media outlets. The album also features D Double E on “4:59,” a track that showcases SONGER’s ability to balance playful basslines with profound narratives.

“SKALA” is a personal journey for SONGER, who has achieved incredible feats independently, accumulating almost 20 million views on one of the most explosive Bl@ckbox freestyles and selling out his debut UK headline tour in minutes. He built up a cult-like fanbase of die-hard SONGER fans from the shed in his parent’s garden in Reading. With no label, booking agent, or strategy, SONGER’s authentic artistry speaks for itself.

For SONGER, “SKALA” represents the evolution of his mindset towards life. “I’m trying to enjoy the situations I’m in rather than stressing about them,” he says. “The name came from my dog, after having a conversation that dogs really might have the best life due to their ability to make the most out of nothing. I then used her name to create a theme of that mindset, relating it to my own career, and attempting to coin that as my own way of thinking.”

The album is a fine demonstration of SONGER’s ability to balance upbeat tracks with poignant introspection. The project showcases SONGER’s talent as a potent rising star, demonstrating his fearless and confident approach to music-making.

“SKALA” is a refreshing take on life through the eyes of an emerging UK rapper. SONGER’s raw talent and authentic artistry make him a standout name in the UK rap scene, and this latest album is sure to solidify further his position as one of the most exciting young artists in the country.

Songer is a 22-year-old wordsmith hailing from Reading. Having laid down the foundations of his work with his debut mixtape ‘Dream Workz’, the artist continues to drive his idiosyncratic vision through a variety of genres and is back with a brand-new release “Love is a Lottery”. 

Hitting viral fame from his freestyles and mixtapes over the past four years – including a ‘The Sunrise Session’ freestyle for BL@CKBOX, which included a mashup of Britney’s “Toxic”, he has since worked on a handful of projects including collaborations with Bad Boy Chiller Crew and Vibe Chemistry, dropping three album-length projects and breaking the charts with the recent smash hit “Balling”. Having already amassed over 50 million organic streams, last year also saw the rapper take his artistry to new heights as he dropped his third mixtape, ‘The Sunrise Project’. 

Now working towards his 2023 EP ‘Skala’, “Love is a Lottery” sees the first instalment of this project and is accompanied by a retro-inspired music video. Speaking about the track Songer tells: “’Love is a Lottery’ is about how complicated love can be but how I feel I’ve won the jackpot when it comes to relationships, with one girl in mind. It’s meant to be a playful and humorous description of how my relationship came about and how easy it is to get wrong.”
