Areej – Hostage

One of the most stunning releases of the week comes from emerging Moroccan-Sudanese starlet Areej. New single ‘Hostage’ is nothing short of sounding sublime, and continues to prove this rising starlet’s immense talent.

Showcasing some of London’s finest soul and R&B, the song was inspired by the emotions that one can experience when feeling emotionally and physically imprisoned.

 “You won’t know what freedom is until you experience what feeling imprisoned is.”

With high praise from the likes of BBC Radio 1, The Observer, Wonderland, Hypebeast and DORK, this artist’s work is not going by unnoticed, and it is in our view that Areej will hit the musical mainstream in a very big way, very soon.
