In a world of downtempo soul, barely-there instrumentalism and vocals autotuned beyond recognition, London based artist Zilo’s ‘Keep Up Wimmi’ is a much-needed injection of effortless, carefree R&B. As blissful as it is immediate, the second single from the 24-year old newcomer shines as the perfect ode to being confidently independent.
Backed by an instrumental indebted to classic hip hop, Zilo glides through the beat with finesse delivering an unforgettable hook. Her hushed sing/rap delivery is matched by the track’s lyrical content; being content with your own company without needing the validation of others. ‘Keep Up Wimmi’’s visuals also match the track’s laidback atmosphere, highlighting Zilo as a serious talent to watch.
