Daisy Maybe and Skepta team up for a ballad of paranoia and temptation in “The Answer”

21 November 2018, 13:22 | Written by Olivia Swash

Rising London-based artist Daisy Maybe enlists grime legend Skepta on her slow-burning new track “The Answer”.

A relationship breakdown and the accompanying jealousy and disconnection of logic is at the fractured heart of the brooding new track, produced by Skepta himself along with Kiran Kai.

Skepta's punchy bars spit frustration as he stews over a toxic relationship (“Shake my head at how you went from a friend to an enemy / I cannot deal with the jealousy”), interspersing Daisy's hazy vocals backed by hip-hop percussion and sampled celestial strings to form a nostalgic Lana Del Rey-esque hook.

It's not the first time the two have collaborated: Daisy is the face of Skepta's fashion line in her secondary career as a model. She's fast becoming both fashion and music's new queer icon, teaming up with girlfriend Bee Beardsworth to walk the runway hand-in-hand for Dolce & Gabbana.

Daisy Maybe's new offering follows on from her Jeshi collaboration "Riverbed".

"The Answer" is out now. Skepta plays London's Printworks from 12-13 December on his European tour. Find out more.
