KSI, Yungblud & Polo G Link Up For The Rap/Pop-Punk Crossover Track “Patience”

“KSI has become a really close friend of mine and my favourite thing in the world is to make music with my friends.”

 

British Youtuber-turned-rapper KSI recently released the second single from his forthcoming sophomore album. “Patience” is a feel-good track, with KSI singing and trading verses with fellow Brit Yungblud and Chicago rapper Polo G.

 

Patience” is described as a song for what the world is experiencing during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is a reflection on the pressures of ongoing lockdowns and uncertain futures. Yungblud sings on the chorus:

 

I need a little bit of patience
‘Cause we been goin’ through changes
I need a little bit of patience
Get out of crazy situations

 

The release of “Patience” comes fresh off Yungblud’s special Youtube Live performance, celebrating the one-year anniversary of lockdown. The punk-pop crossover star was also one of the early adopters of the livestream concert format. The online show featured a wide range of special guests including Avril Lavigne, Machine Gun Kelly, Dave Navarro, and KSI himself.

 

“Patience” also represents a growing trend of hip-hop and pop punk artists creating unlikely collaborations. Other recent examples include Travis Barker with Run The Jewels (“Forever”), Machine Gun Kelly with Iann Dior (“nothing inside”), and All Time Low with blackbear (“Monsters”).

 

There has always been a connection in rebellious spirit between rap and punk. However, this new school of artists is bringing a new genre-bending energy into the mainstream. “Patience” even debuted at number 1 in the UK charts this week.

 

KSI describes seeing Yungblud perform at the NME awards as an eye-opening moment for him. Yungblud returned the respect for KSI’s unorthodox route into his music career, with the two striking up a strong friendship quickly.. The two Brits were also more than happy to work with Polo G.

 

“[KSI] has become a really close friend of mine and my favourite thing in the world is to make music with my friends,” Yungblud told NME. “Having Polo on it is an absolute honour, he’s a true f-cking punk, his individuality shines and I am a massive fan.”

 

The release date for KSI’s second album has yet to be announced.
