This Friday, June 2, east London's Jay Prince will release his Late Summers mixtape. Prince has already shared the lead track "When I Die" and follows that up today with "Mandem," featuring the smooth R&B vocals of Shakka. The song is a custom-built summer roller, its laid-back vibe propping up a song focused on knowing who is on your side and keeping distance from those who aren't.
Speaking to The FADER via email, Jay Prince said: "'Mandem' is about realizing how far I've come and grown as an artist being able to get to a place where you never thought you could reach. Shakka was the best fit for me as a feature on this song, firstly because I'm a big fan of his and secondly because he is someone who I respect and have built a relationship with naturally. It was dope being able to work with an artist who has a good ear musically and just gets how this shit goes."
