French artist and producer James BKS joins forces with Q-Tip, Idris Elba and Little Simz his new single ‘New Breed’.
An ode to Africa and empowerment, ‘New Breed’ perfectly merges James’ Cameroonian roots on production, with the lyricism of hip hop legend ‘Q-Tip’, multi-talented actor and artist Idris Elba, and Mercury Prize nominated rapper Little Simz.
Speaking of the collaboration James explains:
“Little Simz, Idris Elba, Q-Tip and me strongly and proudly represent the New Breed movement, a different way to approach music with no borders, no judgment, no labels. We have learned from our past mistakes and victories and our eyes are on Africa, while in the meantime we embrace our own personal paths, respectively in the UK for Little Simz and Idris Elba, in the US for Q-Tip and in France for me”.
