Hitting number two in the UK album chart and with over a billion streams, in Dissimulation KSI creates space for both his public persona and the personal: big hit features with the likes of Rick Ross and Lil Baby (Down Like That) and AJ Tracey (Tides) sit alongside more intimate, honest tracks. No stranger to defying expectations, Dissimulation received critical acclaim. Clash labelled it "an excellent body of work"; "he's absolutely smashed it" proclaimed Metro.
It's no surprise that KSI has been seen on the cover of The Sunday Times Magazine, Music Week, The Observer Magazine, Viper and Notion. Other labels and artists want a piece of the KSI pie too: just look to the success of his features on S1mba's Loose and Nathan Dawe's BRIT nominated Lighter.
With his second album on the horizon, a 2021 tour which sold out in seconds, the launch of his own label plus singles with Craig David (Really Love), Anne-Marie (Don't Play), YUNGBLUD (Patience) and latest solo single Holiday, KSI has proven that music is very much his domain.
KSI brings with him the unrelenting work ethic and infectious energy which YouTube instilled in him. Despite his debut's success, he's certain Dissimulation just scratched the surface: the next record, he's clear, will showcase his artistry's further progression again. Given FAULT Magazine described KSI as "one of 2019's biggest success stories - "an emergent hip-hop star" said The i - all eyes will be on his follow up. KSI's task - writes The Observer - is "not just to make "YouTube rap" but the real thing". Their verdict? "Mission accomplished."
All Over The Place, the new album from KSI via BMG UK / RBC Records, out 16 July is available to pre-order now.
