Discussing his new single, Charlie says “Solo signifies a new chapter in my musical journey, now I’m surrounded by an amazing group of people who continue to elevate me.” Speaking on the collaboration with producer Cassper Nyovest, he says “I have always been a fan of Cassper so when we were in the studio together vibing, l played him the demo that I had with Gemma on the hook. When Cassper heard the track, it didn’t take him long to jump in the booth and lay down a verse – the rest was history.”
