Tolü Makay + Malaki – The Light

Two of Ireland’s breakthrough talents, Tolü Makay and Malaki collaborate on one of the most beautiful releases of the week, with a perfect fusion of R&B and rap.

As both artists are strong advocates of mental health (Malaki tackled his personal battles with depression on new EP ‘DFTTYM’, while Tolü’s debut EP ‘Being’ explored self-love), ‘The Light’ poignantly demonstrates their move towards finding self acceptance and celebrating progression.

“It’s hard to recognise how far you’ve come whilst achieving so much mentally and musically. This track pays homage to the struggles I endured whilst trying to get to where I am today. Thankfully I have broken from the chains and become everything I’ve always wanted to be.” – Malaki

Malaki – Head Highs

Undoubtedly one of Ireland’s most promising rappers of late, Dubliner Malaki’s superb ‘Head Highs’ serves as the lead single from the forthcoming EP ‘DFTTYM’ (Don’t Forget To Take Your Medicine), which due later this month.

“I wrote this song when I was living in London the summer of 2020. I wasn’t in the greatest of head spaces and I was confined to my flat due to the pandemic. I promised myself I would come back a stronger person and enjoy the life London had to offer. This music video definitely proves that.”
