In that time, he’s written and produced for a who’s who big league artists, from Beyoncé to Madonna, Dua Lipa, Little Mix, Diplo, Rudimental, Julia Michaels and Stormzy, among others.
The London-bred muso’s hotly anticipated debut LP Tongue will drop at an unspecified date later this year. Tongue is “something I've worked on over the course my entire career and something I've been discovering myself in it,” he told Billboard.
