Last year was pretty full-on for Tion Wayne. The rapper’s release schedule was about as relentless as it gets, following his 2021 album, Green With Envy, with an almost constant run of solo singles and collaborations. Understandably, things were a little quieter at the start of this year—that is, until now, as he releases his latest single, “Healing”.
He’s not exactly easing back into the workload, though. Directed by Wowa, the new video for “Healing” follows Tion and the team on a cross-continental trip from London to Nigeria and finally to India, where he pays homage to the late rapper Sidhu Moose Wala, all the while splashing his trademark green colours across the screen at every turn.
The track itself was produced by Crumz and GA and it packs a punch. Built on some weighty 808s, the drill-leaning production gives extra ballast to the North London rhymer’s punchy flow as he speaks on the reality of the world he grew up in and the non-stop work he’s put in to make sure he never has to live like that again.
