Finesse Foreva: Finesse Foreva’s landmark moments to date include selling out two drill tours in 12 months with Skengdo x AM, as well as first drill acts to sell out London’s Koko. Two runaway tracks from multi platinum producer Gotcha alongside Tion Wayne and Russ Millions with No.1 single Body, and the now platinum selling Kiesha & Becky. Then there’s Drake’s Demons ft. Fivio Foreign and Sosa Geek – a drill track which hit the Billboard Hot 100, produced by FF co founder & hit maker JB Made It, who also produced French Montana’s ‘Thats a fact’, a few months before. Finesse Foreva were also amongst the list of nominees in the Best boutique Label category at the AIM Independent Music Awards 2022, and have been put on the Managers Music Forum ‘Managers spotlight‘ for incredible managers. The lists of moments go on, but there’s still so much more to achieve.
