Cementing herself as one of the breakout stars of 2021, Bree kicked off the year shortlisted for BBC Sound of 2021 and has now ended it with a BRIT Rising Star award nomination. Single releases from her widely acclaimed 2000AND4EVA Mixtape including, ATM, Gucci and HOT HOT have garnered huge global acclaim with Bree scoring a BET Award for Best New International Act (viewer’s choice) and co-signs from the likes of Doja Cat, Chloe Bailey — whom she cameoed for on “Have Mercy” — Khalid, as well as rap behemoth Cardi B. The Hackney-born singer also featured on Lady Gaga’s Dawn Of Chromatica Remix album released in September, securing what she calls the “feature of a lifetime”. Last week Bree also received two MOBO nominations for Best Female and Video of the Year for HOT HOT.

Embracing a DIY approach to her ascent to super-stardom, Bree Runway has quickly amassed a fervent grassroots loyal following. Sonically, Bree is an enigma, forever evolving global pop into her own contortions, and never one to shy-away from fashion, she’s become a muse for some of the world’s biggest labels - Gucci — synced the star’s song of the same name just days ago. As she mentions in her 2021 PAPER cover story “It’s beyond the music, it’s a lifestyle.”
