Bree Runway links with Maliibu Miitch on new single "Gucci"

Bree Runway has released her new Maliibu Miitch collaboration "Gucci".

"Gucci" is Bree Runway's first outing since featuring on a remix of Rina Sawayama's "XS" earlier this month.

Bree Runway says of her new single, "As a young black woman, I definitely felt like I was living through various pandemics during the pandemic. From COVID-19 to the global outrage of George Floyd’s death and having race at the world's forefront louder than ever, being bombarded with footage of my people being constantly mishandled through the protests and even more police brutality incidents, it was all so overwhelming. Being black is a joy and my biggest blessing, but during this time I've been heavily reminded of the pain, the lack of privilege and trauma attached to my complexion so much that I almost forgot myself."

She adds, "So, I decided that "Bree will continue to be Bree, her black and excellent self". Instead of focusing on the pain, I chose to be excellent and luxurious. I chose to adore my skin and celebrate my African features, and to ooze opulence. I’m a special diamond, and although sometimes the world wants to rob me of that perception, I refuse to forget, and I hope everyone listening and watching feels and channels that energy. We’re special. Don’t you ever forget."

The Hackney-born rapper/singer started her year with huge momentum with her "APESHIT" and "Damn Daniel" singles.

She's yet to follow up her 2019 EP Be Runway.

Bree Runway's "Gucci" single featuring Maliibu Miitch is out now.
