Announced to perform @ BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend Sunday 28th May

London - UK, 31st March 2023 – British hiphop artist Piers James steps into his ascendancy with new single 'BOOPvia seminal rap imprint Payday Records today.
Continuing to deliver with an eclectic mix of classic hiphop and commercial rap, 'BOOP' is a sonically charged playful track, laced with the storytelling and genre breaking flips Piers has become known for.

With Piers picked to perform at Radio 1 Big Weekend this summer, he maintains his skyward trajectory demonstrating why GQ dubbed him 'Britain's hottest up and coming hip hop star' and Hypebeast declared 'he is pioneering the UK's new-wave nostalgia scene.'
Giving an insight into the track Piers says; 'BOOP is about stepping into your power and knowing your worth. As an artist we face many challenges along of the way but remembering to enjoy the journey, taking the wins and loses as they come and remembering who you are, where you came from & why you got into this music game.'
'BOOP' follows a stellar 6 months for Piers James. Previous releases from his upcoming high-concept project, 'Cha Ching', 'K.K.O' and 'Showbiz' were included in the FIFA 2023soundtrack, seized the coveted BBC Radio 1 Track Of The Week spot, an NFL Sunday spotlight and was championed by tastemakers from BBC 6 Music, GRM Daily, HypeBeast, Wonderland and Clash to US tiles like Uproxx and Soho House LA. Having featured in brand campaigns for Adidas, Stella McCartney and Flannels he also recently launched a creative collective, called Born Artistic To Achieve (BATA), to forge links between industry figures and emerging artists.

An exciting multi-disciplinary rap creative with talents that go beyond his songwriting; Piers James is an artist apart, both lyrically and sonically, he delivers rhymes that veer from well-trodden ground. Bringing old-school vibes into the 21st century, the hotly-tipped London based rapper and producer has already garnered notable attention across the industry and airwaves. Drawing comparisons with everyone from Kayne West to Tyler The Creator and Dave, he takes influences from Hip Hop, Reggae, R&B, Garage & Indie from the 90's era and effortlessly fuses the golden age of music with a new school style. Mixed with his natural charisma he is able to reveal his versatility with each release bringing a unique flavour to the UK.

Stay tuned for his long player project in 2023
