Deezer and DAZN Italy launch another “Play With” episode featuring Italian rapper Shade

Shade gives insights into his passion for football and its influence on his career – and teases his upcoming single “Per Sempre Mai” feat. Federica Carta

Paris, May 18th 2023: Shade’s new single “Per Sempre Mai” feat. Federica Carta is the opener of the latest episode of “Play With”, a collaborative project between DAZN and Deezer. The content series features prominent Italian artists discussing their passion for football and how it has often been a fundamental element of inspiration and influence on their artistic careers.

In “Play With Shade”, the rapper acclaimed for “The hit of the summer” is interviewed in his beloved hometown Turin, which is known as a hub for freestyle football. Through personal and professional anecdotes, Shade guides fans to his favorite spots in the city, including Tesoriera Park where he first kicked a ball around, and Dora Park, the Brooklyn of Piedmont.  His strong attachment to Turin and his favorite team keep being the reason for postponing his move to Milan. 

In addition to sharing their football stories, artists participating in the “Play With” format collaborate in music videos exclusively produced by DAZN and Deezer. Shade’s episode provides a sneak peek of his new single “Per Sempre Mai” feat. Federica Carta, which will be showcased during the pre and post-match coverage of the 36th day of the Serie A TIM championship on DAZN.
