DijahSB Announces Living Simple EP, Shares “Khadijah”: Stream

Toronto rapper DijahSB has announced a new EP called Living Simple. The six-song project is out on February 10th, while new single Khadijah is out now.

Living Simple is closely intertwined with Living Single. The EP’s name is a nod to the title of the ’90s sitcom, while “Khadijah” is a nod to Queen Latifah’s character on the show, who DijahSB’s mother loved so much that she named her child after her. Best of all is the cover of the project, which uses this nostalgic cartoon font. Check it out below.

Understandably, the song “Khadijah” is about the loneliness of being single, but the persona Khadijah avoids self-pity with a laid-back, loveable beat. “I’m at the crib like Khadijah/ I wonder if I’ll ever find someone out here who’s a Warden,” the artist raps. Later, the reference song turns to Kanye for another verse: “Had a light skinned girl, broken my heart in the winter/ Had a dark skinned girl, broken my heart, she’s a singer.”

Last month, DijahSB shared the origins of another Living Simple song, “SummerTime.” Last year, the artist released the album Head Above the Waters — one that we’ve included in our list of rap albums not to be missed for 2021 — and the EP Tasty Raps Vol. 1, which they broke down track by track .
