For Immediate Release

Emerging as a global phenomenon in 2016 with millions of streams to her name, Grammy Award-nominated singer, Kah-Lo has unveiled her highly anticipated debut EP, The Arrival.
On the five-track project, the Nigerian-born, New York City-bred music artist fuses wild rhythms, dancefloor-ready beats, and skyscraping hooks together. The opening track, “Ouch” is an exciting Afro-House anthem with hysterical lyrics. Meanwhile, on the follow-up single, “Fire neon keys bounce underneath her slick verses before she drops the red-hot hook, “I look so fire bitch, I am the match.” The high energy “Commandments” features a chanting chorus set for club speakers while the last track, “Candy,” is a pop song with a head-nodding beat punctuated by old school beeper chirps and a thick bassline.

Back in 2016, Kah-Lo linked up with Riton for the breakout “Rinse & Repeat.” The international anthem not only amassed 65.3 million Spotify streams, but it also picked up a Grammy Award nomination in the category of “Best Dance Recording.” Loaded with bangers, they dropped Foreign Ororo highlighted by “Ginger” and “Fake I.D.”—which notched 94.2 million Spotify streams. Along the way, she collaborated with everyone from Idris Elba to Destructo and earned acclaim from Rolling Stone, HYPEBEAST, i-D, NME, and more.


Dance-pop sensation, Kah-Lo, is Nigeria-born, New York City-bred artist who has carved her own niche within the music scene and is ready to show the world every angle of her sonic versatility. Kah-Lo first emerged on the scene in 2016, assisting UK producer Riton on the hip-house cut “Rinse & Repeat,” which earned the two a Grammy nomination. From there, Kah-Lo dropped her solo debut single “Fasta” in 2017, sitting at the crown of the BBC Radio 1 Dance charts for five weeks. By 2018, Kah-Lo dropped the infectious “Fake I.D.” which became the lead song for the U.S. arrival of TikTok, and the viral hits have just kept on coming. Her songs have been featured in a myriad of placements on TV and film among other platforms.

Whether it’s collaborating with Idris Elba on “Ballie” or Selena Gomez on the “Back To You Remix,” Kah-Lo shines. Her features on Diplo’s “Give Dem,” along with The Knocks on “Awa Ni” have also further crystallized Kah-Lo’s consistent track record for bringing the best out of any song she touches. In 2020, she dropped the rhythmic “Melanin” with Michael Brun, setting the stage for her debut project.
