    The sample, the lyrics, the delivery, the visuals... It's all *chef's kiss*. Tion Wayne hits so hard on this one. 


    1.8 BILLION streams last year alone. The first drill track to go No.1 in the UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand (with his Russ Millions collab Body). The most viewed video on YouTube & GRM Daily and most used sound on TikTok. MOBO winning, Brit-nominated superstar Tion Wayne is such a massive British export that he might as well be listed on the FTSE100.

    Now, fresh off another hit single at the top of this year with M24 collab Knock Knock, the titan of UK rap returns with brand new single IFTK. Produced by Litek & Whyjay, IFTK sees Tion flip La Roux’s 2009 classic In For The Kill to create yet another iconic drill anthem.

    With fan anticipation at an all-time high (the teaser accumulated over 200k views on Instagram and 425k views across TikTok in less than a day), the single is already shaping up to be one of the biggest drill tracks of the year.

    With car chases, duffel bags filled with cash, runways, and shoot outs galore, the Wowa-directed music video is an absolute movie. Tion Wayne finds himself in the middle of a Narcos episode and La Roux herself makes an appearance. Check out the clip below. 


     

    With multiple UK Top 10 singles, a Top 5 album with his highly anticipated debut Green With Envy last September, a collaboration with Central Cee and Ed Sheeran on the Bad Habits remix and record-breaking sold-out shows across the UK, Tion Wayne has emerged as one of Britain’s biggest artists.

    With huge radio support and consistent premium placement on the popular Spotify playlists Hot Hits UK, Rap UK and Who We Be, the UK rap figurehead has collaborated with some of the biggest and most exciting names working today including Stormzy, Potter Payper, D-Block Europe, Fivio Foreign, Davido, 6lack, Central Cee, Rema, NSG, Rudimental & Jack Harlow amongst others.
