Pop music’s most dynamic ambassador Bree Runway delivers a sonic explosion with confident new single Pressure out now.
‘Pressure’ is a sleek, percussive manifesto of self-confidence and a statement of intent from the rising global superstar. In Bree’s words: “I’ve been away for a second now, but I’m back to apply exactly what the song title says: PRESSURE. I love how this song embodies everything I am. It oozes Africa with the rhythm of the drums, the attitude, the assurance and the fashion. I made this song with nights out in mind. You know when you look so good before you head out, and you hope that you bump into an ex or a hater? Yeah, that’s the mood.”
The first of a trilogy of releases and premiered as Clara Amfo’s Hottest Record (6.10pm today) on Radio 1, Bree teased a snippet of ‘Pressure’ as part of her blazing ‘Hot Hot’ performance at the 2021 MOBO Awards where she was nominated for Best Female and Video of the Year. She closed out an incredible 2021 as a BRIT nominee for the BRITs Rising Star Award, highlighting Bree as an artist that will make a huge impact on music in 2022.
Bree kicked off the year as she means to go on, landing in the NME 100 Class of 2022 and receiving two nominations for the NME Awards 2022 – Best New Act in the World and Best New Act from the UK. In March the Hackney-born singer will play shows in Manchester, Birmingham, and London as part of her first ever UK tour. The London date, originally booked for Heaven, sold out in a few hours, and was upgraded to Brixton Electric. The tour follows last year’s sold out shows at Colours in London which were packed with Bree’s showmanship and an undeniable, instantaneous star-appeal scoring a flawless 5 stars from NME, and with the Evening Standard declaring Bree as a “super-star in waiting”.
