British rapper, singer and songwriter Stefflon Don releases her new single “Can’t Let You Go” (Quality Control Music/Motown). This follows her long-awaited return to music with her recently released single “Move” which has already been streamed several million times and received critical praise from the likes of FADER, Complex, Clash and NME.
“Can’t Let You Go” is Stefflon Don’s latest single, inspired by the lust you feel for someone, even if they aren’t right for you. It is the lingering feeling of not being able to get someone off your mind, so instead you reminisce about the nostalgic times you’ve had together.

Stefflon Don said of her inspiration for the single, “For this track, I wanted to lean into my natural singing voice and also experiment with doing some of the melodies in Yoruba. The overall vibe of the track is underpinned by a sultry Afro Beats sound. I always love to fuse all of my cultural influences into my work, because I am very much inspired by different parts of the world”.
“Can’t Let You Go” is Stefflon Don’s second release this year after “Move”, her first new music in 2020. Released last month, “Move” was praised by Clash Magazine as a “confident dancehall-fueled roller that taps into carnival energy.” “Move” followed the global knockout success of her first EP “Hurtin’ Me”, with its title track earning 2.3 billion streams.
