James BKS is a French Cameroonian producer. The beat he provides for the song is upbeat and funky, mixing his Cameroonian roots with a hip hop sound. Q-Tip is the first voice you hear on the first verse. Hook duties are handled by either backing singers or a sample, with Idris Elba interjecting, he then spits the second verse, with a verse challenging an old system and proclaiming himself as the new breed. Little Simz has the last verse, the beat being stripped down allowing Simz to shine, rounding off what has been an amazing year for her.
