Rising producer Mura Masa may not have a debut album under his belt quite yet, but he does possess quite a few big collaborations. In just the last two years, the 20-year-old Brit has hit the studio with ASAP Rocky (“Love$ick”), Shura (“Love for That”), Låpsley (“Seven Months”), and NAO (“Firefly”).
This week, Mura Masa adds another impressive artist to his guest list: Charli XCX. The two have linked up for “1 Night”, a catchy and steel drum-laden cut set in the tropics. Stream it down below.
“I think I just had that beat lying around for a while and we sent it to a couple of people. Then Charli just did her thing,” Mura Masa told BBC Radio 1’s MistaJam of how the track came together. “I think with a song like that and with someone like Charli, it was important to me not to make just another pop song. It had to be a little bit more interesting. I think hopefully this achieves a little bit of both worlds, like something from her world and something from my world.”
Update — Monday, March 27th at 11:20 a.m. CT: The music video for “1 Night” has been unveiled today. It stars a handful of teens and young couples going about their day, hanging, making out, and in some cases, dancing alongside Charli XCX in a school gym.
“1 Night” is expected to appear on Mura Masa’s upcoming debut album, To Fall Out of Love To. Charli recently put out her Number 1 Angel mixtape.
