So High
by Mist (featuring Fredo)

Album: Single release only (2019)
Charted: 7

Songfacts®:

  • This swaggering summer anthem finds Mist sparring with West London rapper Fredo. The track features the pair rapping about a girl who makes them feel "so high." It is the first collaboration between the duo.
  • The song's bouncy beat is supplied by Mist's fellow Birmingham native Preditah. The garage and grime producer also collaborated with another artist from England's second city, Jorja Smith, when he produced her 2017 single "On My Mind."
  • Preditah's production samples Toni Braxton's "You're Makin' Me High," a #1 US hit for the R&B singer in 1996.
  • The lavish video was shot on location in Costa Rica. It sees Mist and Fredo involved in a drug deal gone wrong, which results in a high-speed chase through the tropical forests.
