Seeming that it looks like it might be #1 this week, I think Slowthai's 2nd album deserves it's own thread. This is the follow-up the Mercury Award nominated 'Nothing Great About Britain' and includes features from A$AP Rocky, Skepta, Dominic Fike, Denzel Curry, Deb Never, James Blake & Mount Kimbie. Feel Away & MAZZA have both reached the lower-reaches of the top 100 but the Skepta collab 'CANCELLED' looks like it might possibly overtake his previous effort with Skepta (Inglorious) to give Slowthai his highest charting and first top 40 single.

Not expecting him to hang onto the top 40 in the singles chart (I expect it'll follow the same pattern of Bicep and Foo Fighters from recent weeks with the initial streaming from the album release not being strong enough to carry it all week), could well outpeak 'Inglorious' though.

Hoping that 'MAZZA' should be good for a new peak this week (previously charted at #94 and it's currently #62 in the mids), think that is my favourite song of 2021 so far - the production reminds me a lot of Playboi Carti's early songs, and it sounds great with slowthai's chaotic energy over it and a very solid feature from Rocky too.

I loved both 'feel away' and 'nhs' as well so very much looking forward to hearing this album! (You can tell he's been hanging around the BROCKHAMPTON circles with the appearances of Dominic Fike and Deb Never on here, the chorus of 'nhs' could be ripped straight from a BROCKHAMPTON song as well, would love to eventually get a proper collab between them - he did appear on an interlude on their last album but that's all)

Good to see him doing so well, although I've generally enjoyed his dance features/collabs (Disclosure, Mura Masa etc.) more than his actual solo singles and the last album was sadly lacking in the same energy and rebelliousness of “Doorman” (my favourite from it). That said, I did really enjoy “Feel Away” and many of the singles from the previous album so will no doubt dive into this at some point this week.
