“‘BDE’ feels like an instant calling card, a purer distillation of the slick sex raps that have defined her recent ascent” – Pitchfork

“No one is making hell-raising club music quite like Shygirl” – FADER

“Her disruptive club music creates a space where anything can happen”  – Guardian

“The South London emcee flexes her different cadences and creative flows over a distorted, industrial instrumental that thrives with its unique sound choices and dance-floor decimating drops” – Acclaim

Shygirl has shared the video for her new single ‘BDE’ featuring slowthai. Directed by Shygirl herself, alongside creative direction from Mischa Notcutt, the video is now available to watch on YouTube.

First unveiled as part of her Shygirl BLU live film, with a simultaneous first play on BBC Radio 1 as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record, ‘BDE’ is Shygirl’s missive on satisfaction. Her first single release of the year was met with global praise from outlets including Pitchfork, PAPERNMEThe GuardianAcclaimMixmag and many others, while totalling over 1 million plays and counting on Spotify to date. Shygirl is also announced as BBC Radio 1’s Future Artist for the month of July.

BDE’ is the first new single from Shygirl since ‘ALIAS’ landed last year. The agenda-setting EP and subsequent remix releases were a masterclass in curatorial flare, with Shygirl carefully selecting some of the world’s most exciting producers to enter her world, including Sega BodegaLSDXOXOBasement JaxxBoys NoizeArca and late pop pioneer SOPHIE, among many others. Since the EP’s release, Shygirl has gone on to star in Burberry’s AW21 presentation, claim a coveted spot in Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list and cover Berlin’s influential 032c magazine. Her rescheduled 2021 EU/UK tour kicks off on October 15th. All dates are now sold out.
