Headie One And Multi-Talented Producer Fred Again Combine For "Charades"

February 03, 2020

"Charades" is the first track taken from a new collaboration between Headie One and Fred Again — the first in a collection of tracks to be released very soon. The pair struck up a friendship in 2019, and have since worked together to take their individual signature sounds into a unique new direction.

Over the past few years, Headie One has cemented himself as a household name in both the drill and UK rap scenes, with multiple projects and songs that have done numbers on the charts. This new track, "Charades", is just another demonstration of his evolution.

The vivid use of Auto-Tune with different pitches and tones demonstrates Headie's artistry and development without compromising his authenticity as the song is still able to maintain that classic Headie feel. On the track, Fred (a British singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and remixer who lent his talents to Stormzy's Heavy Is The Head) places Headie's signature melodic drill flow perfectly in line with his production as he finds the right balance between tempos, hardness and melodies.

The visuals for the track give a perfect insight into the song-making process and the chemistry between the two as we see a showreel of them working in the studio and Headie killing his shows. It just goes to show that Headie works as hard and as he plays and sounds.
