East London’s newest rising talent, Saisha Bassi, makes an explosive introduction with the hypnotic debut single ‘Cash Flows’.
Over mesmerising production from Parker Ighile (Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Ariana Grande), ‘Cash Flows’ sees Saisha going against the rules and designing her own destiny; urging listeners to “get your money how you want, just make sure that the cash flows.” The track also pays homage to the courage and fortitude of Ariel, from Disney’s 1989 classic The Little Mermaid.
‘Cash Flows’ is about defying anyone or anything that prevents you achieving your dreams,” says Saisha. “Whether you want true love, success or to make money; turning your fear into determination can tear down the system that is used to deter us from going after what we really want.”
The 24-year-old British-Indian singer-songwriter is a staple of the capital’s open mic scene, and has been collaborating with producers Parker Ighile, Robert Evans and Forrest Beats on her sultry blend of alt-pop and soul, taking cues from the likes of Jill Scott, Amy Winehouse and Mereba. ‘Cash Flows’ is the first taste of what to expect from the promising newcomer.
