Where the heart lies is where Headie One finds home, as he told us backed by a Faith Evans sample on his breakout 2019 album Music x Road, and it lies with those close to him. “I’m just happy to be out, I’m feeling good and taking it all in,” he tells me over the phone, merely a week after his release from prison and dropping a new project. “Things are a bit mad at the moment, but now I’m around all my people again and that’s what I missed the most.” All things considered, Headie sounds pretty jubilant when we talk. He’s in the process of moving house which he says is a welcome change, not because of his previous circumstances but as a representation of the way his environment nourishes him.
