Listen to Emtee’s New Song ‘Prayer’

You'll have this one on repeat.

Emtee just released a new single. "Prayer" is Emtee in his element, reminiscent of his recent EP DIY 2 (2018). Just like most of his songs, "Prayer" consists of a good balance between singing and rapping.


The South African hip-hop artist sounds comfortable with who he is, rapping lines like, "They want punchlines, like the shit I'm making is whack," and "It's too late, now I'm feeling myself/ No matter how it go, I ain't killin' myself."

"Prayer" was produced by Kreazo, who also produced most of DIY 2.

It's been a quiet year for Emtee. The last song he released was the throwaway "Smogolo." He has appeared on songs by Rouge and J Smash, but no solo songs. For most of the first half of 2018, Emtee has been making headlines for his dispute with Ambitiouz Entertainment, the label he's been signed to since 2016.

Hopefully, "Prayer" marks a new beginning for the talented artist, and he will be releasing more music in the remaining months of the year. He has been sharing with his Twitter followers that he's in studio.
