UK rapper Piers James returned a couple of weeks ago with his latest single, “Showbiz”. The title-track of his forthcoming EP, it was also included in the new FIFA 2023 soundtrack.
“Showbiz” arrived accompanied by an eye-catching visual which Piers himself directed. That video is just as explosive as the emcee’s lyricism.
“Showbiz” carries James’ comments about the music industry. He explains, Piers says: “‘Showbiz’ explores the experience of navigating the creative industry. That can place restrictions on an artist’s creativity to be a digestible product for the masses. The question is, do you serve your true artistry or do you serve the algorithm?”
