Kojey Radical has announced the release of his debut album, Reason To Smile, released 4 March 2022 on Asylum/Atlantic Records. It features guest appearances from Tiana Major9, Masego, Shaé Universe, Cashh, Kelis, Lex Amor, Knucks, Shakka, Wretch 32, Ego Ella May and Rex Life Raj and his own mother (whose voice weaves throughout the record) alongside a who’s-who of global production talent including KZ, Swindle, Jay Prince, iO, The FaNaTiX, Cadenza, 169, Venna, Ric & Thadeus, Blue Lab Beats, Emil Larbi, Mr Cutts and Ed Thomas.

Having already made such an indelible mark on British music it’s hard to believe that Kojey Radical has never released an album. Over four previous EPs, Kojey Radical has given people greatness but on Reason To Smile he’s striving for perfection. Defined by a sound he describes as “space and bass” and featuring the singles War Outside (ft Lex Amor) and Gangsta, Reason To Smile is without doubt Kojey Radical’s most ambitious and complete work to date and an emphatic statement of the levels at which he operates.

Talking about the album, Kojey Radical says: “This is the first time I’ve done it to the scale and ambition of what I speak. Previously it’s been ‘I’m warming, I’m warming, I’m warming up.’ But I’m warm now – put me in the game”
