A collaboration with Cosha, as well as producers Karma Kid and Sega Bodega, the club track is the first new release from the London artist following the April debut of Nymph_o , the deluxe edition of her debut studio album, Nymph.
Despite originally making “thicc” around the same time she was recording the first version of Nymph, Shygirl said she “decided to hold this one back” until she could do a few live performances.
“I’ve enjoyed teasing this one at festivals and shows while still in demo mode for over a year already with the idea of somehow infusing the energy of the crowd into this final version of the song,” she said in a press release.
“’thicc’ is fun and carefree and definitely a tease,” Shygirl added, “All the classic traits of club shy infused into one track.”
Despite being forced to cancel her fall co-headlining tour with Tinashe, Shygirl is still set to embark on the U.K. leg of her Nymph Part 2 World Tour between previously announced shows in continental Europe.
