Speaking on the collaboration, Avelino explained, “I tried to bring pure summer vibes in the coolest way possible, Nana Rogues (the producer) and Not3s helped create what I feel is a proper summer banger.”
Avelino is charting a steady rise following an explosive 2017 which saw the release of his acclaimed debut 12-track playlist, ‘No Bulls***‘ and seminal single ‘Energy’ featuring grime heavyweights Skepta and Stormzy.
