Cristale smashes her new hit single 'Militant’
“The fast-rising Brixton rapper, poet and artist is rightly garnering attention with her
super-smooth flow and her uncompromisingly punchy lyrics” - Evening Standard
“Through her dynamic flow and clever punchlines -
Cristale brings a refreshing sound to the drill genre” - CLASH
“Cristale’s given us countless cold verses this year -
she’s exciting to say the least - her 2021 looks promising” - GRM Daily
We’re incredibly proud of our South London rap talent Cristale who kicked off the new year with the fresh single ‘Militant’ which was released on 20th January! ‘Militant’ sees Cristale deliver her trademark hard-hitting vocals with lyrics that allude to her ongoing ascent through the musical ranks. Channeling a variety of warehouse, military, and monarchic aesthetic, the accompanying music video portrays her as a queen surrounded by jokers and servants.
Cristale explains how “this song is one of my favourites, as it taps into my own experiences with anger and overwhelming feelings. Being “militant” is like being in a frenzy; growing up you might find yourself emotionally overwhelmed or “militant” more often than you’d like to be, and that’s ok.”
She’s recently named as one of Jack Saunders’ ‘Future Artists’ on BBC Radio 1, one of Dotty’s ‘Ones To Watch 2022’ on her Apple Music 1 show, and was part of an exclusive cypher recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studios to celebrate Tiffany Calver’s three-year anniversary of ‘The Rap Show’ on BBC Radio 1Xtra. Her music has been supported by BBC Radio 1Xtra presenter Nadia Jae, Snoochie Shy (1Xtra), Robert Bruce (Capital Xtra) and Ellie Prohan (Kiss).
It is ‘Cristale’ clear that she’s commencing the new year with the same infectious energy in which she finished the last. Cannot wait to see how 2022 will unfold for her!
