On his last featured cut, a single released back in March, Wretch 32 revealed that the stress of life in the spotlight had left him praying for a Blackout. Evidently, he just needed a little rest; fast-forward five months and the Tottenham repper’s Doing perfectly OK, according to the freshly-released follow-up. No longer feeling overwhelmed by his success, he pledges to use his celebrity to set a good example for youths growing up in poverty. He also takes the opportunity to shout-out the women in his life—namely, his moms and the mother of his children. Birmingham singer Jacob Banks jumps on the uncredited beatsmith’s African-inspired production to deliver a warm guest chorus, and an anonymous director’s touching visuals round out the package. Fans will be able to cop this record as part of Wretch’s five-track Doing OK [Remixes], dropping August 25, in the UK.
