Songfacts®:

  • The lead single from Wilkinson's second studio album, "Flatline" features vocals from Wretch 32 and was released on March 12, 2016. "I wanted to do something different with this record," Wilkinson said of the song. "I wanted to keep it on a drum and bass tip, but work with an artist to bridge the drum and bass and hip-hop scenes in an interesting and distinctly British fashion. I'm into REAL rappers, and personally for me, the finest lyricist in the UK is Wretch. He's a rapper's rapper! His punchlines and delivery are incredible, and I'm really happy with how the record turned out!"
  • Wilkinson previously worked with Wretch 32 on the rapper's 2014 single "6 Words", which he helped to produce.

    Wretch 32 said: "I continuously enjoy fusing hip-hop into different genres, and I've done so on a previous record involving Wilkinson, '6 Words.' Having worked with Wilkinson before there was no doubt in my mind on hearing 'Flatline' that I'd have an awesome bridge for it."
