U.K. breakthrough artist KSI has enlisted punk-rocker YUNGBLUD and American rapper Polo G on his new single, Patience. Debuting at #1 on the UK's The Official Big Top 40 Chart, the rapper has today dropped the visual for the track, which sees the trio situated within a variety of scenes that signal a spiritual rebirth.
“The song is called Patience and it’s very fitting for everything we are going through right now and what we’ve all been experiencing collectively during this lockdown." says KSI. "I’m so incredibly proud to have YUNGBLUD and Polo G on this record with me. I knew that I wanted to collaborate with YUNGBLUD when I watched him perform for the first time at last year’s NME Awards. Together with Polo G, we’ve created an absolute smash and cannot wait until we’re able to perform it live together on stage, it’s going to be special,”
Speaking of the collaboration, YUNGBLUD shares: “KSI is an artist who came into music from a non-traditional route. Something I relate to a lot! He had something to say when no one would listen, and he ended up speaking and connecting to millions of people and they spoke back. That ideology is exactly what YUNGBLUD is about. Of course, we were going to work together in some shape or form. He has become a really close friend of mine and my favourite thing in the world is to make music with my friends. Having Polo on it is an absolute honour, he’s a true f*cking punk, his individuality shines and I am a massive fan. This song is about needing time to process what is going on around you, about needing a second to just exist and be. You don’t have to know what’s next, just try and be present every day. I think this is a message we can all relate to right now.”
