Emmanuel Speaks recruits TE Dness for ‘Who Told You’ drop

Emmanuel Speaks has been on the rise for a couple of years now. Starting on social media, the Spoken Word Poet quickly gained the eyes of Channel 4, GRM Daily and more with his powerful lyricism. Now, after years of cultivating his talent, the East London talent is launching his debut album with the release of its first single Who Told You.

The powerful production aides Emmanuel as he wastes no time in getting to the powerful and potent lyricism.

“Who told you that we can’t win? // Who told you that I must bow, to you, because of the colour of my skin?”

Emmanuel asks across the single. In places, the poet resembles Stormzy in tone, but it’s clear that once the two minutes and change are up that Emmanuel is a force of his own. His talent is loud, unapologetic and more refined than ever at this point. Who Told You is dynamic in its approach and speaks to a generation that continues to move and shake the table at every opportunity. Lastly, Emmanuel being able to tackle so many obstacles and issues in just under three minutes further articulates his skill and dedication to the craft.
