Making his highly anticipated return, one of the UK’s up-and-coming rap talents Arz is welcoming the new year with his latest introspective single, ‘Long Time No See’. LISTEN HERE + WATCH HERE.

Following up from the release of his debut EP Can’t Commit alongside various viral tracks, the trailblazer who is reputable for his refreshing take on love and relationships, taps fellow artist and producer El Londo for this emotionally charged release.

Staying true to his style, the El Londo-produced track provides moments of reflection as Arz walks down memory lane. Revisiting relationships and memories, he explores the feeling of nostalgia whilst comparing it to his present emotions. His effortless ability to paint relatable scenarios all whilst embracing those pools of vulnerability are why he’s become an artist to watch. Accumulating millions of streams worldwide as a UK platinum-selling-artist, Arz’s climb to success has pushed him to the forefront of the Black British music.

Speaking on the track himself, “I linked up with my good bro El Londo for this one to talk about how long it’s been since certain people, places & behaviors. I wrote this at the end of last year in the midst of a lot of change” Arz commented. “When Londo played me the original sample in the booth I immediately thought it was DUMB. The melody allowed me to easily talk about how I felt. This is the first track from the fresh set of music I’ve got coming & I’m more than gassed to say the least. LONG TIME NO SEE.”

The 20-year-old quickly flew to fame with his break-out single ‘Alone With You’ back in 2021. In a time where the intricacies of love and relationships are held accountable online, Arz strips back the controversy and leads by good example for those who wish to embrace love for its flaws and all. Captivating the masses with his use of lo-fi beats and sample-woven production, he’s paved a lane of his own that sets him apart from the rest. Encouraged to pursue his passion for music at a youthful age, Arz began freestyling with his peers before making the decision to drop out of college in order to fulfill his life-long dream.

Now labeled as an artist to watch with support from Wonderland who highlighted his trajectory, “North-east London’s Arz has been one of the UK’s biggest beneficiaries of the influence of social media towards an artistic career”, as well as GRM Daily who established his position, “the East Londoner’s evolution into a superstar”. Followed by further support from Music Week, Clash Magazine, and Acclaim Magazine who amongst many others embraced his exceptional story-telling abilities, “Arz wields a profound narrative-building ability which quickly helped him build a name for himself throughout the UK.” As Arz continues to cement himself as one of London’s hottest artists, it’s evident that his drive and hunger to succeed are showing no signs of slowing down. Gearing up for an explosive year ahead, 2024 will be another ground-breaking period for Arz and his music.
