UK’s rising star Sekou, fresh off the success of his debut EP “Out Of Mind” and the hit single “Better Man,” has returned to the spotlight with his compelling new single “Time Will Tell.” Released under NWS/Island Records, this track cements Sekou’s position as a formidable force in the UK music scene and an Apple Music “Up Next” artist.

Produced by the renowned HARV (known for his work with Justin Bieber and Omah Lay), “Time Will Tell” is a soul-stirring exploration of young love’s complexities, uncertainties, and the quest for self-identity within a romantic relationship.

Sekou’s raw songwriting honesty and ability to tap into genuine emotions are evident in this stripped-back single. His recent sold-out show in London’s Lower Third only underscores his connection with his audience, with fans echoing his lyrics. This young artist’s growing acclaim is highlighted by support from industry giants like Anderson .Paak, Fred again.., Kamal, and platforms such as BBC Radio 1, Spotify, and COLORS.

“Time Will Tell” is a milestone in Sekou’s evolving career. It’s a testament to his musical prowess and a harbinger of the continued success and influence he is poised to wield in the music industry. As we move towards 2024, Sekou’s trajectory appears limitless, with “Time Will Tell” marking yet another step towards his inevitable stardom.
