ShaSimone Spits From The Heart On "Thug Affection"

August 03, 2022

The last we heard of ShaSimone was when she dropped "Lock Off", a dizzying salute to the grime greats and an expression of her love for the genre. Now she dials down the tempo and takes a moment for some self-evaluation on the latest cut "Thug Affection".

As she settles into a therapy session, the LikkleDotz production begins with a twinkling piano which soon reveals an unsettling bass and hi-hat combination. Sha's lyrical prowess is the main attraction as she comes face to face with the pain she's experienced in her relationships. Nevertheless, she still remains hopeful in her pursuit to find genuine romantic connections.

"'Thug Affection' is a song I made which is a reflection of the current dating scene from my perspective," she comments on the track. "Situationships have become so glamourised and I feel like a lot of people are craving genuine, real love. So this song is a dedication to all the people looking for something real."
