London wordsmith ENNY returns with new single ‘Champagne Problems’.
The rapper’s excellent single ‘Peng Black Girls’ blew up at the end of 2020, with a further remix – featuring Jorja Smith – seeming to underline her arrival. Amid a flurry of hype ENNY shared her debut project in 2021, the excellent ‘Under Twenty Five’.
Taking a moment to catch her breath, ENNY breaks her silence on a new single. Out now, ‘Champagne Problems’ is as personal as ever, except the framework has shifted a little – tackling her viral fame, she re-asserts that she doesn’t have all the answers.
With witty word play – we learn she likes her gin on the rocks – the caramel-smooth production comes from Beat Butcha and Tala, with some additional work from Will Yanez.
“The problems I’ve had this year aren’t last year’s problems but they’re problems nevertheless. I call them ‘Champagne Problems’, because they are definitely the problems I would’ve rather had two years ago. With this track, it’s nice to just get back to freestyling and rapping as an art.”
The video for ‘Champagne Problems’ is a stark, stylish black and white affair, shot in and around ENNY’s local community in Thamesmead, South London. Directed by Jean-Sébastien Degni, you can tap in below.
