Shygirl's new track was shared alongside 'Shygirl BLU', a new “long-form live realisation” of her Alias EP.
British rapper, DJ and singer-songwriter Shygirl has shared 'BDE', a new song featuring Northampton's Slowthai, alongside Shygirl BLU.
Shygirl (real name Blane Muise) released her acclaimed Alias EP last year, and is slated to perform Slowthai’s new one-day festival, Happyland on September 25 at Northampton Cricket Ground.
Self-directed by the co-founder of NUXXE label, Shygirl BLU features new renditions of EP cuts like 'SIREN,' 'SLIME,' 'TWELVE,' 'FREAK' and concludes with new Karma Kid-produced collaboration 'BDE'.
The bass-heavy single sees Shygirl being her trademark unapologetically raunchy self, with lyrics like "Read my lips/ I need a big dick boy/ Ain't no body slanging it right" and an equally X-rated cut from breakout UK rapper slowthai.
Shygirl BLU showcases the multi-talented artist's keen eye for a curated visual with the performance featuring an all blue colour scheme, Burberry styling, plenty of fast cars and carbon copies of Shygirl herself.
slowthai recently featured on 'Glidin’', a new collaboration with Pa Salieu. Revisit our February 2021 interview with the artist here following the release of his sophomore album TYRON.

Shygirl BLU feels like an ideal way to finish her ALIAS campaign, following remixes from Boys Noize, LSDXOXO and Basement Jaxx ahead of her forthcoming autumn tour.
