The queer-identifying artist unveils her brand new Afrobeat-charged single just before summers end.


Who said you had to wait until the start of a new year to embark on a journey of reinvention? If you were to ask Talii, she would be the first to refute the statement — delving into sounds anew in her new Afrobeat-charged single, “More Than Friends”. Setting our headphones ablaze with light and airy notes, Talii’s angelic vocals slowly pull into focus, narrating a story that treads the ever-blurry line between friendship, lust and love. Flirtatious and charming, “More Than Friends” offers up a slice of summer no matter the time — good vibes and into-the-night dancing guaranteed.

Speaking further on the single, Talli explains, “It has an afrobeat bounce to it, I worked on it with one of the producers (Phil Mango) on the track that is African and he’s incredible at creating Afro beats and reggae. Being a mixed girl with Afro-Caribbean in my blood, this bounce really speaks to my soul.”

Laced with the gentle yet punchy production and playful flow synonymous with her soundscape, “More Than Friends” is just the start of a whole new era for Talii — and we are more than willing to bare witness.
