Simi Links Falz On Sublime New Single ‘Borrow Me Your Baby’

Afro-pop sensation Simi returns alongside the much loved Nigerian rapper Falz on her
sun-kissed new single ‘Borrow Me Your Baby’, out on 31st May.

Released via Simi’s own independent label, Studio Brat, ‘Borrow Me Your Baby’ is an
Afrobeats gem, dripping with gorgeous harmonies, delicate guitar shapes and reverb-soaked
synths over a classic Afrobeats groove, and charismatic verses from the renowned Nigerian hip
hop star Falz.

Speaking about the collaboration, Simi said: “It’s probably unacceptable to have such great
music chemistry with someone and not continue to tap into it. I love creating songs with Falz
because we bring out the goofiest sides of each other.”

Falz commented: “Super excited to be creating music with Simi again. The magic we make
when we come together is crazy. I feel like everyone has lowkey been craving this link up.
Clearly the best duo that exists aside from rice and stew”.

Continuing Simi’s hot streak, ‘Borrow Me Your Baby’ is her third single of ‘24 and features on
her forthcoming album. It follows the stellar collaboration with Tiwa Savage, on their track
‘Men Are Crazy’ which garnered a range of support from the likes of BBC 1Xtra, CNN, The
Independent, Nylon and OkayAfrica. Previous singles include ‘All I Want’ as well as last
year’s acclaimed ballad ‘Stranger’, while 2024 has already seen collaborations with Candy
Bleakz and Adekunle Gold. Last year she joined Grammy-winning superstar Alicia Keys on
her North American ‘Keys To The Summer’ tour.

Born and bred in Lagos, Simisola Bolatito Ogunleye aka Simi is an award-winning Nigerian
singer, songwriter and sound engineer. After three celebrated studio albums, she left X3M
Music in 2019 to launch her record label Studio Brat. Now on the cusp of a million monthly
Spotify listeners, the self-described “Soft Queen” has become a leading force in the next
wave of Nigerian music, accumulating over 1 billion streams worldwide. Across five critically
acclaimed projects, Simi has carved her own lane which navigates between a more rhythmic,
commercial sound.

With ‘Borrow Me Your Baby’ Simi’s signature sun-kissed sound continues to go global.
