Following her recent performances at Teder.Fm in Israel and London’s Jazz Cafe, hotly tipped London artist Alicai Harley has unveiled her slick new single “Proper Paper“.
Produced by SSK, “Proper Paper” is yet another example of the singer’s uplifting productions, which perfectly encapsulate the current climate of UK music. A lush embodiment of the fast-rising talent’s sumptuous sound and rich vocal range, “Proper Paper” is tinged with melodic Caribbean influences, a nod to her homeland of Jamaica.
Alicai again proves herself as worthy of the widespread acclaim she has consistently received from the industry and fellow musicians alike, including Dizzee Rascal, Estelle, Swizz Beatz and Stefflon Don. Add that to the tremendous support around her previous singles, with “Naah Done” being playlisted by BBC Radio 1Xtra and receiving spins across Capital Xtra.
Having shut down Carnival in August with stand-out performances across various soundsystems, including Toddla T’s Steeze Wonderland and Red Bull, Alicai Harley also spent time on tour around the UK with BBC Introducing, as well as performing an energetic set at this year’s London Black Pride.
Alicai Harley’s “Proper Paper” is further testament to her incredible work ethic, further proving her as one of the most exciting artists in the UK.
