Despite being only 22 years of age and yet to release an album, MNEK has become one of the most sought after names in pop music. Already his songwriting and production credits include work for Beyoncé, Madonna, Dua Lipa, Diplo, Zara Larsson, Rudimental, Stormzy, and many more.
He’s been Grammy-nominated, and last year he was given one of the most prestigious titles in songwriting after receiving the “Vanguard Award” from ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers). His own releases are just as infectious: 2015 single “Never Forget You” (written and recorded with Zara Larsson) was a powerful and melodic pop track that went top ten in the UK, and most recent single “Paradise” is a vivid and emotional R&B track.
It was after the release of “Never Forget You” that the artist teamed up with New Era for a unique collaboration, creating two vibrant 9FIFTY snapback designs that, in MNEK’s words, are “‘a canvas used to bring my artistic journey to life.”
