Dave Drops The Introspective New Single ‘Starlight’ And Announces Full US Tour Dates

Dave might very well be the biggest star in British rap right now. The South London rapper took home the BRIT Award for Best Hip-Hop/Grime Act last month and flexed his versatility playing a guitar that emitted flames in his performance of “In The Fire.” Now, he’s just shared “Starlight,” the first new music he’s put out since last year’s fantastic, chart-topping breakthrough album, We’re All Alone In This Together and it’s more heat from Dave.

Also produced by Dave, “Starlight” is set to a flip of Frank Sinatra’s “Fly Me To The Moon.” On the track, he ruminates on his growing fame, love, and living under a microscope. He has a venerable grip on hip-hop tropes from both sides of the Atlantic and it all comes together on the masterful hook where he raps:

“It’s hard to hate on the truth I’m livin’
Enough man hate with the lies instead
Countin’ cash with the phone to my ear
I feel like Meek on the private jet”

He’s soaring right now and Dave’s star is set to keep rising. He was announced as a Wireless Festival headliner last week and his US tour starts in April, beginning with a stop at Coachella.
