Hard on the heels of his suc­cess­ful recent single release Fly is the new 10- track album from the highly-acclaimed Brit­ish Asi­an rap­per, Premz. Entitled Taaj, it fea­tures a blend of mix­ing hip hop, moody R’n’B vocals, Trap with both Eng­lish and Hindi lyr­ics.

Taaj - which is Hindi for ‘crown’ — is the second solo stu­dio album from Premz which is out today, Fri­day, Decem­ber 11th. Premz’s mis­sion with Taaj is to “con­tin­ue bridging the gap between the Brit­ish Asi­an sound and the more main­stream world.”

Through his music, Premz has already amassed over two mil­lion views and streams from listen­ers glob­ally, with his unique infu­sion of cul­tures and real-life exper­i­ences. He shares through writ­ing and rap­ping per­son­al exper­i­ences that are relat­able to oth­ers, abol­ish­ing the typ­ic­al ter­min­o­logy of a ‘rap artist’.

“This is a very com­plete pro­ject which show­cases my ver­sat­il­ity across dif­fer­ent genres and tem­pos, while still telling my story and my out­look as a Brit­ish Asi­an,” says Premz.

He adds: “The new album comes straight off the back of my first, Indi­an Sum­mer, which was nom­in­ated for a Brit Asia award. The very next day after the award show I went into the stu­dio and recor­ded the first track of this album, Fresh.”

Fly, which was released at the end of Novem­ber, was the third single release from the new album and con­tin­ues to storm the charts. Adds Premz: “This song is a per­fect demon­stra­tion of what can hap­pen when you genu­inely bring togeth­er dif­fer­ent cul­tures and genres on music.”
