FLASHBACK TO EARLY 2000s: AARON SOUL – ‘RING RING RING’

Aaron Soul was the first act signed to Def Jam UK back in 2000. The US arm of Def Jam opted to sign a UK artist who had the same singing style as Craig David, and their research when it came to the UK scene back then, stopped there – at Craig David.

The Aaron Soul project ultimately flopped and he was later dropped from the label.

Anyway check out Aaron’s only hit single ‘Ring Ring Ring’

He had a decent voice but was in dire need of some charisma…..

    THE BRITISH COMMERCIAL MUSIC AVANUE IS KILLING BLACK MUSIC DEAD COS EVERYBODY JUST WANTS TO BE SIGNED SO THEY DO WHATEVER THEY FEEL THEY HAVE TO DO TO BE SIGNED..

  2. Ty – this shit was wack!!! It sure was.
    The intro – oh dear why ???
    The lyrical content, ring ring ring – why ???

    It’s all gone Pete Tong badly and the music industry is a mockery. With so much untapped rich talent in the UK – this is what we have to endure.

  3. i barely remembered it until the chorus, then it all came flooding back. Yes Ty, it was/is dry. lol. i dont remember if he was the best we had at the time, but i seriously doubt it.
