Shenseea has released a brand new single “Lick,” (via Rich Immigrants/Interscope Records) featuring Megan Thee Stallion. “Lick” is the first official release off Shenseea’s upcoming debut album, ALPHA, which will be released March 11.
Produced by Murda Beatz, “Lick” features a snippet from Pupa Nas T and Denise Belfon’s “Work,” reimagined by Shenseea as the track’s insatiable hook. Rounding out Shenseea’s vocal stylings on the song is Meg’s incredible rapid-fire bars. Together, they’ve created an undeniable power anthem that will have listeners bumping it on repeat. Shenseea is featured on Apple Music’s New Music Daily cover upon release today. Additionally, she dropped a technicolor music video that accompanied the single.
Not one to rest on her laurels, Shenseea has had an incredible lead up to the new single. She was tapped by Kanye West to add her rap and vocal stylings to two different songs on the now Grammy nominated DONDA (“Ok Ok Pt 2” and “Pure Souls”), as well as playing her first ever U.S. festivals with Rolling Loud in Miami and New York. Shenseea did all this while putting finishing touches on the new project, burning the mic on Funk Flex Freestyle, and releasing fan favorites like “Run Run” and “Be Good.” “Lick” is Shenseea’s first official single of 2022.
Shenseea has ascended through Jamaica’s dancehall ranks to become one of the genre’s most sought-after artists. She broke through the scene with her viral single “Loodi” feat. Vybez Kartel. The following year, Shenseea toured Europe with dancehall superstar Sean Paul. In 2019, Shenseea signed with Interscope Records (under Rick Immigrants Records) and released her first label single, “Blessed,” featuring Tyga (now with over 57M views on Youtube).
The track, which came with a music video that was praised by the likes of Hypebeast, FADER, PAPER Magazine, VIBE and more, quickly racked up over 1,000,000 views overnight. Shenseea is on a roll, and she shows no signs of letting up.
