FRENCH THE KID smashes into 2022 with his self-reflective new single ‘Remedy’.
Released via Virgin, this haunting record finds French lamenting the toll that drink, drugs and a life of excess can take on your mental health. Laid over a siren-like, intoxicating production by producer SketchMyName, ‘Remedy’ arrives with an arresting video shot by Ourchive Films, featuring footage from French’s sold-out, roadblock, homecoming debut show at the O2 Academy Islington.
‘Remedy’ follows a meteoric 2021 for French. The rising rapper’s fiery singles ‘Thrill’ and ‘Uptown’ quickly racked up millions of streams upon release, hit the B List at 1Xtra and landed in the Top 100. Setting the industry alight with his unique fusion of thoughtful lyricism and addictive hooks, French has been tipped as an Amazon Music ‘One To Watch’ for 2022 alongside the likes of Tems and PinkPantheress.
Just 22 years old, French spent his teens in South West France before returning to the UK at 18 to take the music industry by storm. Since smashing onto the scene with his debut single just 2 years ago, French The Kid has amassed a cult following, millions of streams and delivered iconic viral freestyles that have propelled him to prominence (including a GRM Daily ‘Daily Duppy’ which has become one of the most viewed Daily Duppy debuts of all time).
