The first collaboration between Mahalia and Rico Nasty follows Mahalia's appearance on Pa Salieu's "Energy" in November last year, and marks Rico Nasty's first outing since featuring on chillpill's "LiLBiTcH" with Soleima last month.
Mahalia says of her new outing, "I made "Jealous" on a sunny day at the end of Summer last year. I was sat in the studio with Cadenza and Miraa May getting some stuff off my chest from the past few weeks. "Jealous" was born pretty fast after chatting. It was a weird time... I was dealing with friends being super unsupportive about decisions I was making and I was struggling with navigating that. I’m really proud and excited about what came out in this song and I hope people love it in the same way we did when we wrote it. Rico Nasty is a badass and one of my favourite artists so getting her to feature was a huge moment for me!"
The new track is teamed with a video directed by Melody Maker.
Rico Nasty says of the collaboration, "Covid couldn’t stop shit! So happy to be a part of this record with Mahalia."
Last year Rico Nasty released her debut album Nightmare Vacation. Mahalia is yet to follow up her 2019 debut album Love And Compromise.
