After a three-year hiatus, London rapper J Hus returned to the scene with his single “It’s Crazy,” which landed him in the Top 15 of the Official UK Singles Charts.

However, the UK Rap darling is only getting started. He’s known for his infectious bangers, and he’s now released “Who Told You” featuring Drake. It’s another track produced by P2J that will help cement J Hus’ influence.

“Who Told You” exemplifies Hus’ unrivaled ability to create block-busting party music. This is the energy Hus bestows on his listeners once more. But just when you think it can’t get any better, none other than Drake appears, and with his effortless rap flow, he stamps the track as the unrivaled summer anthem of 2023.

The long-awaited collaboration brings these two music legends full circle. Drake welcomed Hus home in the most epic way possible during his sold-out London show at the O3 aka O2 Arena on April 5th, 2019, inviting him on stage in front of 20,000 screaming fans – a truly emotional and celebratory night for fans. “They need that music. They need his presence,” Drake said.

From performing at a Section Boyz show in 2016 to freestyling on Charlie Sloth’s iconic “Fire In The Booth” to collaborating on remixes with the likes of Headie One and Dave, the rapper’s love for UK music is well documented.

Drake, on the other hand, requires no introduction; his impressive discography speaks for itself. He is undoubtedly one of the world’s biggest artists, with seven studio albums, numerous mixtapes, compilation albums, and EPs, a slew of Billboard #1s and platinum and gold certified singles, and a long list of collaborations with Rihanna, Jay-Z, Eminem, Future, Lil Wayne, and others.

The previous track “It’s Crazy,” produced by Fumes (Rimzee, MoStack) and The Elements (Burna Boy, AJ Tracey, Headie One), arrived with a frenetic visual directed by Taz Tron Delix (Stormzy, Headie One, Calvin Harris). Hus arrives in a black Mercedes Benz, a nod to the iconic “came in a black Benz / left in a white one” lyric from Common Sense’s “Did You See?” Hus looks intently into the camera before a dusty battle with figures of authority. On a wall is spray-painted the phrase “Don’t Say Militancy,” which Hus has been sharing on social media in the lead up to the song’s release.

The release of “It’s Crazy” happened to coincide with the six-year anniversary of “Common Sense.” A record that arrived on the heels of Hus’ generation-defining street rap tracks – “Dem Boy Paigon,” “Lean and Bop,” and “Friendly” – that demonstrated his ability to make a crowd dance and cause mayhem: a first for the UK music scene.

Hus released Big Conspiracy, his fourteen-track second album that earned him a BRIT Award for Best British Male, just over three years ago. More than six years have passed since Common Sense turned heads and cemented him as a rap king; and in the time between both albums, he nabbed multiple features on award-winning, best-selling records from some of the music industry’s most iconic artists (Dave, Skepta, Stormzy, Ed Sheeran).

Nonetheless, the demand for new music from Hus has been so high in the aftermath of his previous two albums that his return feels like a long-awaited homecoming for a deeply revered leader.
