Shay D Drafts In P Money, Lioness & More On Lastest Album ‘Speaking In Tongues’

6 August 2021

North London spitter Shay D has delivered a brand-new album for us!

Titled Speaking in Tongues, this album from Shay D is made up of fourteen original tracks which reflect a variety of different moods. The project is dominated by bullish tracks such as “Celebrate Life”, “Slice Of The Pie” and “Cor Blimey”, but we do hear Shay channel a more mellow approach on “Rain On Me” and “More Than Friends”.

Joining Shay on the album are P Money, Lioness, RoxXxan, Capo Lee, Isaiah Dreads, Yanti and Dibo.

“This album is all sides of me, there are songs for everyone to relate to,” Shay D said of the album. “There’s girl power anthems, hardbody rap, break up songs, positive tunes, party tunes, songs for drives, gym, flirty songs, deep ones, songs ‘bout losing people, reality checks and love. I even sang on this album.

“I wanted to enjoy the process, especially creating vibes collaborating with artists I rate.”

Speaking In Tongues comes amid a busy year for Shay D who has landed a residency on Reprezent Radio, recorded a BBC Radio 1Xtra drivetime mix and worked with London’s Tate gallery.
