‘Run To You’ is the fifteenth track housed under King Promise’s second studio album ‘5 Star’ and it features American rappers Chance The Rapper and Vic Mensa.
Ghanaian singer-songwriter King Promise, real name Gregory Bortey Newman, continues on the success of his 2019 debut, As Promised, by creatively reworking highlife and hiplife styles using modern pop and R&B frameworks. While the guest features on 5 Star’s songs, which span British drill, Dutch and Nigerian Afropop, and American hip-hop, add synergistic strength to half of the songs, the other half highlight King Promise as a strong soloist.
King Promise described the process of recording “Run To You” as follows:
“It’s just a song that fits their sound so perfectly that you’d think I made it for Chance and VIC. The two of them are very close. Chicago, they are from those ends. They are like poets. They rap differently and they are very intentional with what they say.”
