Katy B is back with her first solo release in five years,‘Under My Skin’,
Katy worked with P2J on the new track, which has been released alongside a video directed by Ash K Halliburton.
Speaking about the release, Katy B said: “It was such a dream to work with P2J, he’s a fellow South Londoner like me and went to school with my brother. He told me back in the day my brother was always saying to him “you have to work with my sister” and when we met, I instantly felt at ease."

"We wrote the song in my studio in my house and it just flowed. He’s such a wizard with drums and even though the song is quite up-tempo, the instrumentation had a pull of sadness too. I was feeling quite shocked and heartbroken at the time which is reflected in the song but I still wanted the lyrics to have a conclusion of hope, perseverance, and self-worth.”
Since 2016’s ‘Honey’, the singer has been quiet - this changed this year as she collaborated with Moses Boyd, contributing to a remix of his track ‘2 Far Gone’.
