Emerging R&B artist Daisy Maybe has released a new song, “The Answer,” featuring Skepta.
“Something tells me you’re the answer to my gluttony / Something makes me want to lock you up, throw away the key,” she sings over a sensuous, Kiran Kai-produced beat. Skepta supplies intense bars of his own: “You really thought you could better me / I’ll make sure you remember me / Shake my head at how you went from a friend to an enemy.”
The song is “a portrait of love, lust, jealousy and sexuality,” Maybe told the FADER. “People are driven by love; ‘The Answer’ looks to where it drives us,” she added. “Not just its final destination, but its pit-stops and pitfalls along the way.”
Maybe has dropped several other loosies across the past two years, but “The Answer” looks like her first proper foray into music—it teases her debut project, Psychosexual, which will be out early 2019. Maybe is known mainly for her work in fashion, which also explains the Skepta feature: She was one of the faces of the grime artist’s Mains fashion line.
