Rising Scandinavian songstress MØ has teamed up with Diplo on new single 'XXX 88'.
Arriving as a fully realised pop package, MØ immediately began attracting attention from high profile producers. A storming performance at New York's CMJ showcase saw hype increase around the Scandinavian singer, but thankfully MØ has been able to seclude herself away in the studio.
Working on her debut album with Ronni Vindahl, the singer recently took time out for a one off project. Teaming up with Major Lazer producer Diplo, MØ began working on new track 'XXX 88'.
Vidahl was there to oversee proceedings, with the sheer pop potential of MØ matched against Diplo's crisp use of bass textures. There's a hint of slow slung hip hop here, while the vocal nods towards R&B greats such as Brandy or even Aaliyah.
It's powerful stuff - immediate, yet with a great sense of depth.
Listen to it below.
MØ is set to play London's XOYO on November 5th.
