Hear Slowthai’s new NME Awards-referencing song “Enemy”

His first new single of 2020.

May 11, 2020

Slowthai has released his first single of 2020. "Enemy" is, at least in parts, a reference to February's NME Awards, where the Northampton-born rapper made headlines for his behavior towards host Katherine Ryan and the altercations with the crowd that followed. If the song's title wasn't enough of a tip-off, the track opens with a clip from The 1975's Matty Healy speech at the show: “Everyone send your thoughts to Slowthai. Fuck knows where he is, but God bless the boy. Fucking nightmare.”
