Earlier this month, Stormzy shared a remix of the track “This Is What I Mean” “Hide & Seek” featuring FLO.
During the release, FLO took to social media to say that “this is our first time recording a single, and we are very proud to have jumped on this beautiful track.”
Album version of “Hide & Seek” originally included vocals by Nigerian singers Oxlade, Äyanna and Teni (via Genius), and in the new version FLO added their own verse to the track.
FLO have been confirmed as the winners of the BBC Sound Of 2023 poll after receiving the BRITS Rising Star Award for 2023. They are also featured in the NME 100, a list of major new artists to conquer in 2023.
Speaking to NME in an interview for the cover of Big Read in January, Renee from FLO said: “Everyone who works with us is amazing, but we struggle to be involved in everything. Right from our EP [The Lead 2021], we made a presentation to show the label: “This is what we want to release, this is what it will look like, this is the schedule.” When people see the greatness of three young black women… praise our leadership, but praise us too.”
Elsewhere, the trio stated that they would like to collaborate with PinkPantheress after a recent live performance at the Boiler Room session by producer, singer and TikTok star.
“It sounds so deep, but I haven’t even gotten to the point of imagining all these artists that we’re obsessed with,” said Stella from FLO NME. “It was reported in the newspapers yesterday that Beyonce is considering the possibility of our support at concerts in the UK as part of her Renaissance tour… this is the first time I’ve heard about it! It’s just crazy things happening all the time—things I couldn’t even think of.”
Speaking to NME about their ambitions, Renee added: “Since there are practically no female bands right now, we have a chance to really create music that people can feel and feel and bring that sound back. We want to sell out the arenas and just take over completely!”
