ArrDee is a rising rap artist from Brighton, England. Not too long ago, he released an appealing music video for his “Hello Mate” single featuring Kyla via Island Records.

‘Hello Mate’ centers around the chorus from Kyla’s 2008 single, “Do You Mind,” with ArrDee complementing the UK Funky classic with his trademark blend of quickfire bars and infectious hooks. This anthem arrives just in time to soundtrack an already sizzling summer. Also, “Hello Mate” serves as another banger from ArrDee, who shows no sign of slowing down his success train.
Shot in the tropical paradise of Ibiza, the sunkissed video sees ArrDee adventuring around Ibiza with a love interest by day and party time by night. The visual further accentuates the unruly, feel-good energy communicated on the track. It was directed by Alfie Cauty, also from Brighton, and one of ArrDee’s close friends, and features a guest appearance from Kyla, who serenades the party with her scintillating vocals.
‘Hello Mate’ marks ArrDee’s first single release since his acclaimed debut mixtape, “Pier Pressure.” In 2022, it’s the highest-selling debut album for a British solo artist. Also, “Pier Pressure” has accumulated over 500 million streams, hit #2 in the UK album charts, and spent a further four weeks inside the top ten.
The biggest breakthrough British solo artist of the last year, ArrDee has scored three UK ‘Top 10’ singles – “Oliver Twist,” “Flowers (Say My Name),” and “War” with Aitch. Also, ArrDee has two ‘Top 20’ singles, “Come & Go” and “Wid It” with Tion Wayne over the past twelve months. If this wasn’t enough, he also landed a UK #1 with his feature on the world-conquering “Body,” and appeared on the Digga D single, “Wasted,” which made it to #6.
