Listen to 'Simmer', the Dope New Track by Burna Boy and UK Singer Mahalia

It's all about love and fiery chemistry in this mid-tempo banger.

After having collaborated with UK artists such as Rita Ora, Lilly Allen and Dave, Burna Boy continues to carve out a space for himself on the UK music scene. Most recently, is his feature on UK singer Mahalia's new track entitled "Simmer''.


Following his recent win at the 19th annual BET awards where he took home Best International Act and mama Burna accepted it on his behalf, Burna Boy continues to bring the damn sauce.

In "Simmer", Mahalia talks about the kind of love she wants from her lover and how she wants it to be expressed more clearly. Complementing Mahalia's catchy hook, "Cool now, please me/Cool now, sinner/Cool down, love" Burna Boy comes through with a solid verse expressing his own feelings and singing, "Baby, you're make me tell you this/I won't waste no time, I'll be proceeding quick/The way you're moving lately got me feeling sick/Like sey you've forgotten who you're dealing with".

The two artists show incredible chemistry in this affectionate track produced by Felix Joseph and Jonah Christian and it's probably what makes it exceptional.

While Love & Compromise (the album comprising "Simmer" and "I Wish I Missed My Ex") will only drop in September, you can listen to "Simmer" on Apple Music and Spotify.
