Jack Harlow thinks Dave’s ‘lyrically better’ than US rappers – and teases collab with UK star

JACK HARLOW’S WORKED WITH SOME OF THE HOTTEST ARTISTS in the US ranging from rap stars Lil Wayne to Da Baby.

The 23-year-old American also shot to No.1 on the US charts with his feature on Lil Nas X’s smash hit ‘Industry Baby‘ recently.

However, Harlow’s next hit could be with UK rapper Dave, who he’s built a close bond with in recent times.

Harlow revealed that the pair initially linked up in Los Angeles, where he took Dave to the iconic Waffle House for the first time.

As their relationship blossomed, they linked up in London and then in Atlanta where they laid something down together in the studio.

And fans may get the chance to hear their collaboration really soon if Harlow has anything to do with it.

When asked if a Dave feature is on the way by GQ last week, Harlow said: “Could be. The first time we met was in LA and then on the way back to London he flew to Atlanta and we went to the studio and worked on some stuff.

“It’s good. Dave and I had one session in the studio but it’s open-ended. We kept in touch. He’s my man. I was FaceTiming with him yesterday.” 

Although there are cultural differences between him and Dave, Harlow thinks their song will be received well because they’re both quite lyrical.

And that’s not something he can say about the artists in the US, Harlow added: “I like his [Dave’s] stuff as it’s really wordy, a lot like mine. Not many rappers are like that back home.”

If Harlow decides to release his and Dave’s work, it will be the second time that the South London spitters worked with someone from across the Atlantic.

Back in 2016, Canadian star Drake jumped on the remix of Dave’s hit ‘Wanna Know’ which propelled him to super-stardom.

Since then, Dave’s gone to clinch two No.1 UK albums but he still credits Drake for helping to launch his and many other UK artists careers.
