Hamza delivers ‘HS (feat. SCH)’, the latest single and music video from his highly anticipated debut album Paradise – available March 1st via Just Woke Up / Rec. 118 / Warner France. Featuring multi-platinum French rapper SCH, ‘HS’ sees Hamza and SCH rapping alongside a rambunctious group of French motocross riders. Directed by Jean-Charles Charavin, the video was shot in Marseille, Franceand Hamza’s hometown of Brussels, Belgium. It’s fresh, rowdy and riddled with the same Super8 style seen in Hamza’s ‘Paradise’ music video. Watch ‘HS (feat. SCH)’
SCH is one of many high profile features across Paradise. Announced across social media, Hamzacollaborated with Christine and the Queens, AyaNakamura, SCH, and Oxmo Puccino. Each artist brings an expert perspective, perfectly complementing Hamza’s mix of cerebral, trap beats and minimal dance bangers.
Over the last 5 years, the Belgian rapper-singer has been able to carve his own path as the missing linkbetween the Atlanta, Toronto and Brussels scenes. With notice from Drake‘s partner & OVO-founder Oliver El-Khatib (on his OVO sound Beats 1 show) and championed by specialized media (Pitchfork, Vice, Colors, Highsnobiety, Clique, etc) who hail him as the “Belgian answer to Young Thug“, the 24-year-old gave last year a real taster with with its Gold-certified mixtape 1994, and – its singles ‘Godzilla,’the dancehall-infused, club-ready ‘Vibes’ and the Gold-certified single ‘Life’ with 17M streams.
Hamza’s glossy, French flow transcends language, as he leads the charge for international rap. Paradiseis a key sign of great things to come.
Paradise will be available via Just Woke Up / Rec. 118 / Warner France on March 1, 2019.
