Brooklyn artist Cig 40 is about to release his new single ‘ME’ on the 29th November 2019. This is his 2nd single of the year, following on from ‘EXES’, released in August.
Inspired by French Montana’s ‘Unforgettable’, Cig 40 strictly positioned ‘ME’ as a dance track, brand new territory for the rapper. Produced by Ali Make It Knock, the track is undoubtedly infectious, with euphoric synths, afrobeat-inspired drums, fused with dancehall and an incredibly catchy and melodic vocal performance, focusing more on the track’s vibe than lyrical content.
Born and raised in New York, Cig 40 is no stranger to the city’s hip-hop scene. Releasing a handful of singles, an EP and a full mixtape over the past few years, his latest single ‘EXES’ was received particularly well, receiving airplay from the likes of Hot 97.1 and Power 105.1.
With a new single and EP on the horizon and inspired by the likes of Jay‑Z, Biggie Smalls and 50 Cent, Cig 40’s unique take on hip-hop combines ‘old principles with a raw edginess and authenticity’.
‘ME’ will be available across all major streaming platforms from the 29th November 2019.
