One Acen keeps pushing forwards with every release.
Now the young Londoner continues his rise by dropping a brand new track with a fresh attitude in the shape of ‘E I O’, which features Hardy Caprio – the third collab of their bromance. The pair first teamed up when Hardy Caprio featured on OneAcen’s‘Rolling’ last year before their roles were reversed for the huge ‘Unsigned’, which became GRMDaily’s second most viewed video of 2017. And when One Acen played a sold-out show at the O2AcademyIslington, HardyCaprio jumped on stage to join him for ‘Unsigned’.
While recent tracks have seen One Acen deliver sensual, smooth-talking toplines, ‘E I O’ finds him in a blunt, seductive mood as he sings “I just fucked a girl on Insta I don’t even follow.” Again produced by OddChild artist CallMeTheKidd, ‘E I O’ switches the moodier atmosphere of ‘Vice Versa’ for an immediately addictive hook that’s set to soundtrack the summer.
“I wrote this song to match my energy. I want people to enjoy my music and have fun. When they hear the song I want them to feel the same carefree attitude people feel when they meet me” says OneAcen.
The accompanying video was directed by Daps, the man behind visuals for the likes of Stormzy, Migos and Davido. It’s pure party vibes, but it’s stylishly executed. Its vibrant energy and sharp shots are mixed with grainy video footage and stills shot on Kodak film, giving the celebratory tone a nostalgic element too.
