Platinum-selling UK rap star AJ Tracey has released a deluxe extended edition of his debut album 'AJ Tracey,' complete with five new tracks - including appearances from Young Adz, MoStack, Not3s, SahBabii and SAFE - plus a special bonus remix of 2018 hit 'Butterflies,' now featuring dancehall megastar Popcaan. Earlier this year, AJ’s self-titled debut album shot to #3 in the UK charts, and is currently the top-selling independent debut of the year. The deluxe edition is an incredible end to a triumphant year for the west London artist and a moment for him to say thank you to his fans. Speaking on the release, AJ said: “For everything you guys have done for me. From me to you.”
The Hamish Stephenson-directed video for hard-hitting new single 'Floss' sees AJ, Not3s and MoStack impeccably dressed, sparring with words and stunting in an industrial backdrop; the environment quite literally on fire with their lyrical wordplay, and AJ in full DIOR.
“The concept for 'Floss' was kept simple: keeping the focus on the artists themselves & their incredible chemistry as performers in visually stimulating environments. We also explored themes & motifs that are ongoing elements of the AJ Tracey identity. Subtlety is the key on this video.” said Hamish Stephenson.
Showing no signs of slowing down after selling out an awe-inspiring two nights at the iconic Alexandra Palace in London (8th and 9th of November 2019), earlier this month AJ announced the Deluxe project with lead single ‘Cat Pack;’ a playful rap anthem produced by Take A Daytrip.
After a series of landmark festival appearances, including main-stage slots at Reading & Leeds playing to over 80,000 punters, AJ’s single 'Ladbroke Grove' emerged as the bonafide, inescapable sound of Summer 2019. Currently the top selling independent single of 2019, enjoying an unbelievable 13 weeks in the UK top ten, with over 80 million streams and 20,000 commercial radio plays to date.
