UK Afrobeats artist and producer K-BEATZ was one of the most sought-after producers in the UK Afrobeats scene, working with the likes of Moelogo, Afro B, Ms Banks, Sarkodie and SK, before he almost lost his life in a gruesome accident in 2019, which took him out of music for over a year. He is back in 2021 striving to pick things up where he left off, starting the year with the teaser record ‘Bend Over’ featuring BDA, and he is proud to unveil his brand new solo single titled ‘LOWKEY’ as premiered by Sian Anderson on BBC 1Xtra.
Written, performed and produced by K-Beatz himself, ‘Lowkey’ is an the infectious afrobeats jam, backed by lush melodies, glorious synths, smooth vocals, and live guitar arrangements, which sees K-Beatz lauding the importance and advantages of privacy in a relationship, even in the face of today’s overexposed world of sharing and demanding to see everything on social media, as he sings, “they watching so hard trying to f**k with our vibe [but] me and my girl, we stay lowkey”.
Speaking about the inspiration behind his new single ‘Lowkey’, K-Beatz says, “It is best to keep your relationship private for a healthier relation. Most couples these days are more keen on showing off their relationships on social media and they just don’t see how important it is to keep your relationship away from the public eye sometimes. Social media is becoming toxic for a lot of people who think that what they see on Instagram is a true reflection of what a relationship should be. I reckon you should keep your relation low key, so no one will be able to have a say or poison your relation”.
Born in Kinshasa and raised in London, K-Beatz grew up in a musical family, with a father who was a musician. He went on to study music, photography and art in college, where his love affair with music truly blossomed, and it was while studying music production at Southampton Solent University that he honed his production skills even further. Collaborations with Moelogo, Afro B, Ms Banks and Sarkodie soon followed, until his upward trajectory was curtailed by a serious accident. Thankfully, K-Beatz has bounced back and is ready to take over the UK afrobeats landscape in 2021.
