Trying to break out of my music bubble during this kinda-lockdown-but-not-really period, I discovered the scintillating Bree Runway, a black British artist who should be way bigger than they are now. The song I want to focus on is “Apeshit”, an absolute banger that feels like a Megan Thee Stallion with some Charli XCX touches, under the spiritual guidance of Missy Elliott.
The pacing. The thumping. The confidence. “Apeshit” is a great entry to 2020 by Bree Runway, and I encourage you to check it out right this minute. It’s been kinda lost in the moment, as Bree is still an upcoming artist who WILL get noticed, but it should get its day in the spotlight. It doesn’t yet have an album attached to it, but when it does, it’ll be a standout. Once you’re done, head back to 2019 and check out her EP Be Runway, which is a great introduction to her production style and where she’s going.
Did you know that releasing something as an EP means there’s no obligation for the label to promote it? That’s some fucked up shit right there. I learned that about two weeks ago, and ever since I did, it now makes everything in the world so much clearer. Buck the trend. Give Bree a listen. Make her the trend.
