Jessica Wilde’s new slab of social commentary ‘Here Right Now’ set to heavy soul funk will send you Wild(e)


Like she just swallowed whole the book of Eckhart Tolle’s ‘Power Of Now’, an influential work cited often by Madonna and Kendrick Lamar, and then went on a trip on P-Funk’s Mothership with Prince and Bootsy Collins strapped in for the ride; highly acclaimed and much-loved singer, songwriter, rapper, producer and South London native Jessica Wilde is back with a thought-provoking new single ‘Here Right Now’, as she turns up the heat for her highly anticipated new album project dropping this summer, which has already gained heavy support from BBC R1 taste makers Jack Saunders and Jess Iszatt who said ‘We get excited every time we get a new track in our inbox from Jessica Wilde’.

“‘Here Right Now’ is a song for the times, in an age of everyone glued to their screens, missing the beauty of life all around, this is an anthem to wake and shake us up, to bring us back to the now!” exclaims Jessica Wilde.

Inspired by a tube ride where Wilde tried to catch eyes with a cute guy across the carriage but noticed how, “he’s too busy looking at devices, missed my eyes when they were telling him they liked him”, to then provoking her to write on the current state of the world, greedy politicians who have lost touch with reality, consumerism and a hustle mentality that has us chasing material gains, only to feed the ego and leave the soul empty, whilst we miss the true joys of life that only exist in the present moment.

Wilde chants ‘Come back to the… Here right Nowwww’.

The track follows her recent singles ‘FADE’ co-wrote with multi-platinum selling writer James Newman, who wrote Rudimental’s Brit award winning song ‘Waiting All Night’ with Ella Eyre, ’Freak Out’, ‘Feathers’ with Zoe Kypri and ‘Love Like This’ with Josh Barry, also from the forthcoming new album. The previous singles stirred up some serious heat, with multiple spins on BBC Radio 1’s ‘Future Artists’, BBC Introducing, plus a recent in studio interview and live performance on BBC Radio London with Carrie and David Grant, airplay from John Kennedy at Radio X and editorial playlist support across the board from Spotify, Apple, TIDAL, YouTube Music, Pandora plus features in CLASH, Complex, Wonderland, The Independent and more.

Not only will Wilde’s artistry continue to impress music lovers and tastemakers alike, but so will her ‘PxSSY PWR’ platform which she created as a response to the disparity between support for male artists over female. The residency at Hootanany Brixton has become a hub and major platform for some of the most exciting underground female and non-binary artists, including sold out shows with the likes of Etta Bond, IYAMAH, Zoe Kypri and Tamaraebi to name a few.

‘PxSSY PWR’, which is fronted by Wilde’s fierce, unapologetic, comedic, pink wigged and biro smoking alter ego, ‘ya gurl Charlene’, also has its own Radio show, clothing line in collaboration with FAME Magazine and this summer ‘PxSSY PWR’ returns to Secret Garden Party Festival to take-over the Noir Organics stage.

‘Here Right Now’ is out on May 17th through Absolute Label Services.
