Eagerly anticipated and brought to life following a successful crowdfunding campaign, Yasmin Kadi’s new single ‘No Drama’ is finally here, and we have the exclusive premiere for your ears only! Take a listen to the track below:
Speaking about the song – which was produced by SOS – Yasmin says: “Relationships, especially intimate ones, can be full of complications. This track is about wanting to say – I don’t want any more drama – take it to your mama, as I’m not interested!”
The song comes after debut single ‘Earthquake’, which rose to the top of the iTunes Ireland chart before Yasmin then performed alongside the likes of Paloma Faith at London’s O2 Forum, headlined the Women of the World Festival in 2016 at the Southbank and toured with MOBO Award-winning Roots Manuva.
Currently starring alongside Usain Bolt in new Virgin Media Campaign This Is Virgin Fiber, Yasmin is now even one of the lead performers in the latest Guitar Hero video game. The future’s never looked brighter for Yasmin.
At a young age, following her birth in Freetown, Sierra Leone, Yasmin was forced to flee to the UK after her family home was attacked during the blood diamond conflict in the area. In that time, she used music to express herself.
“Growing up in Africa, you don’t really have a voice, especially as a female,” she explained. “You always had to suppress how you felt and your opinions didn’t really matter to a certain extent, so I was determined naturally as I got older to just speak my mind.”
Yasmin Kadi’s new single ‘No Drama’ officially releases on August 18, 2017.
