New school Afrobeats superstar, Bella Shmurda makes a return with a sombre single, ‘Loner’. Produced by Tuzi. A soulful exploration of solitude and reminiscence, ‘Loner’ invites listeners into a world of introspection and emotion.

With delivery in English, Pidgin, and Yoruba, Bella Shmurda rests his distinct vocals on drums, strings and keyboards; the perfect instruments to create the right rhythm and atmosphere for ‘Loner’.

An in-depth storyteller, Bella Shmurda chronicles his journey in music and personal life; ‘If I no tell you, tell me how you want to know?’ reminds listeners that there is often more than meets the eye, more that they will not know about him as a person or an artist unless he comes out to share his stories. Very intentional from Bella Shmurda as he has in recent years grown into his artistry and personality, often prioritising privacy of personal matters over public attention.

Adding an extra layer of depth to ‘Loner’ are the hauntingly beautiful additional vocals by Lyta, whose contribution enhances the experience of the song. Arguably one of the most personal songs released by Bella Shmurda, ‘Loner’ , his first single of the year and lead single from his upcoming EP scheduled for release this Spring; coincidentally during his European tour including his 9-City UK stop. There is also a planned release for an LP (album) this Autumn.
