Chy Cartier’s ’04’ Is A Glimpse Of Her Story

UK artist continues her rise...

Chy Cartier returns with new single ’04’.

The rapper shot to viral fame with her song ‘BOSSED UP’, which racked up more than one million views on Instagram within 24 hours. Since then, she’s gained co-signs as wide as Stormzy and Killer Mike, with Central Cee, Ghetts, Digga D, and more showing support.

’04’ escapes the hype by allowing Chy Cartier to tell her story, utilising the LiTek and Whyjay production to add further nuance to the narrative.

The title refers to the year of her birth, with Chy Cartier wanting to speak her truth. Adding depth to her rise, ’04’ looks at the hardships she overcame – for an overnight success story, she’s already been working for a long time.

Chy Cartier explains…

04′ is named after my birth year, 2004. In the song, I acknowledge that this is just a glimpse of my story, knowing that listeners are eager to hear more. I briefly touch on the chaotic  journey it took to achieve this calm, like sitting behind a chauffeur, illustrating that the path to success is anything but straightforward—it’s very colorful. As I say, ‘all the times in the rain, that’s how my flowers came.’ The chorus emphasizes that in life, actions speak louder than words and will take you further.

Tune in now.

The track also comes equipped with a chic new video, directed by Toxic.
