CITIZEN KAY Unleashes Infectious Funk-Tinged Jam 'EGO'

Charismatic wordsmith Citizen Kay returns with yet another infectious jam in ‘EGO’. Bursting with attitude and swirling synths, Citizen Kay’s voice rides smoothly over the layers of disco grooves. ‘EGO' is sure to become a regular party-starter with funk-filled bass-line, technicolor keys, rush of sax, strings and positivity in tow. Speaking about the single, CK explains “‘EGO’ might seem like a song about me chasing a long lost love or something, but it's my love-hate relationship with money.”

Migrating to Australia from Ghana at the age of six, Citizen Kay’s made it his mission to make music blending both cultures and includes shades of traditional hip-hop, soul, funk, jazz and rock. This ambition has propelled him to two ARIA nominations for albums ‘Demokracy’ (2014) and ‘We The People’ (2015), with all three previous albums taking out top ten spots in US College Hip-Hop Charts abroad, and an invite to appear on triple j’s prestigious Like A Version.

Where CK feels at home is on stage, spreading his word and uncontainable energy to audiences nationally. Extensive touring has seen the wordsmith take to the road with the likes of Earl Sweatshirt, Danny Brown, Run The Jewels, Wiz Khalifa, Public Enemy and Tkay Maizda and perform at Falls Festival and Groovin The Moo.

Keep your ego in check with this introspective party track, it's easily Citizen Kay's best work yet.
