Speaking about ‘Firebabe’ and his collaboration with Debbie previously, Stormzy said: “Debbie, George [Moore] and I got in the studio together and it was the most beautiful moment. It was a session I’ll never forget, for the rest of my life.

“It was extremely special and everyone in the room understood that. We were making something that hopefully, God willing, lives forever. Something that has soul and feeling, and it came from a really pure place. We took a truth and made some art from it.”

Meanwhile, Debbie appeared on NME‘s ‘Essential Emerging Artists’ for 2023 earlier this year.

In the list, NME described the Def Jam signee as “solid-gold proof that UK R&B will live forever” and someone who “has a once-in-a-generation vocal.”

It continued: “Forget the current rhetoric that there aren’t enough budding stars to help the UK R&B ascend to new levels; Debbie’s soothing, soulful voice and intimate songwriting proves that she is leading the genre’s ever-expanding pool of new musical talent.”
