Shaé Universe Arrives With New R&Drill Gem "Pushin'"

January 24, 2022

Nigerian-British artist Shaé Universe has flawlessly mastered a pristine blend of her R&B roots and the harder edges of drill, giving us another silky-but-tough hybrid to keep us going.

Produced by XVR BLCK, "Pushin'" is Shaé's first single of the year and sets the bar high. Flooded with an intricate display of layered harmonies and backing vocals, Shaé's angelic tone soars over the booming 808s with ease. "Pushin'" is a personal reflection on past relationships, where she urges herself to "keep it pushin", despite the shortcomings.

Speaking on the new track, she shares: "Pushin'" was written with ease, it flowed so naturally because it was a subconscious premonition of certain relationships that would come to an end in my life. I didn't know it at the time I wrote the song but soon enough I saw the coherence manifest in my life. Cheers to honouring your boundaries and dropping dead weight!"
