Song of the Day: Ring My Line – Promise King (ft. Headie One)

Following on from his second single of the year following ‘Slow Down’, which was widely supported by i-D, The Independent, Highsnobiety, DJ Target and more, KING PROMISE brings on the party vibes with track, ‘Ring My Line’. Featuring Headie One, who rolls out imitable laid back bars, King Promise deliver his silky smooth crooner lyrics over a vibrantly smooth afro-fusion sample.

The First Films Worldwide directed video, brings to life the hypnotic single. Filmed on Ghana’s lush tropical coastline, the three-and-a-half minute production features both artists, soaking up the vibes surrounded by statuesque, goddess like women to soon head to an after-hours party.

Born and raised in Accra, Ghana, King Promise is an ardent storyteller inspired by life, love, family, hustling and partying, over an irresistible blend of afrobeats, hip hop and R&B. Since first releasing music officially in 2017 via Soundcloud, Promise’s fanbase quickly began to swell as word spread and a huge buzz manifested locally. Before he knew it, his career had taken off and he now counts fans in the likes of GQ, Complex, Boiler Room, BBC Radio 1 and more. Though a humble guy not bothered by numbers, he has over 35 million streams on his top 5 tracks on Spotify alone and 2.6 million followers on his socials and claims Ghana’s most streamed album of all time with his 2019 album, ‘As Promised’ (which saw him share tracks with Raye, Wizkid and more). With his irresistible signature crooner lyrics and palpably warm and danceable energy, King Promise is somewhat of a hidden gem outside of West Africa.

‘Ring My Line’ is part of an incredible new project he wrote over lockdown which he’s yet to shed light on…check out the video below…
