The 21-year-old singer-rapper returns with long-awaited music following an incredible 2018. Across the past twelve months he has put out his second EP Take Not3s II, participated in the launch of the Nike Nigeria World Cup kit, collaborated with COLORS on their Adidas kit and featured on a mammoth nine singles, including the Gold selling singles ‘Butterflies’ with AJ Tracey and ‘Fine Line’ with Mabel (the latter peaking at #11).

Since bursting on to the scene 2017 with his viral single ‘Addison Lee’, Not3s has been unstoppable. He has accumulated over 1.5 million single sales in the UK, has won both Best Breakthrough Artist (2017) and Artist of The Year (2018) at the GRM Daily Rated Awards and has been nominated for the BBC Sound of 2018, two MOBO awards, MTV’s Brand New for 2018 and BET’s Best International Artist award.
Developing a love for music in his early childhood listening to the likes of DMX and Usher, it was not long before he began experimenting and expressing himself through the medium.
Armed with his lyrical ability and the sounds of his childhood – from Afrobeats, to Dancehall, to US R&B and Rap and UK rap – Not3s melded together his own melodic sound, that has been heard sound-tracking the past two years. Now stepping into a new stage in his career, the Hackney-born artist is ready to affirm his position as the one to watch.
