Headie One has dropped his much-anticipated debut album ‘Edna’.
Dedicated and named after his late mother, the deeply personal and reflective album sees the British rapper embrace various themes including the importance of faith in God, his relationship with his hometown Tottehnam, discrimination and prejudice within the prison system, emotional intelligence, love and mental health.
Headie commented, “Edna is my story. It’s what made sense to me and my experiences. I didn’t follow any trends, Edna is exactly what I wanted it to be and I’m proud of it.”
The album is the follow-up to his experimental collaborative mixtape with Fred Again ‘GANG’ and features production from Wondagurl, Kenny Beats, 169, M1onthebeat plus guest appearances from Drake, Future, Skepta, M Huncho, Young Adz, Kaash Paige, Mahalia and more.
