ALI draws from her experience of growing up in the projects of Chicago, relying on music as an outlet and divesting time into her passion. Well, all those years paid off.
SG ALI’s cadence is unmatched – smooth and relaxed laid over fast-paced trap beats, delivering lyrics that are simultaneously heartfelt and braggadocios. And her confidence is infectious. Along with the single, ALI dropped a video for the anthem opening with vintage photos of her hometown and displaying clips of her surrounded by friends. It’s authentic, almost familiar, and depicts ALI’s effortless swagger.
