UK MUSIC: SWAY FT DONAE’O – ‘POP A BOTTLE’

Rapper Sway’s new single featuring Donae’O  Pop A Bottle is your typical “urban” mainstream track designed to infiltrate the UK single chart. It will sell. Donae’O sings he wants a “Coca Cola bottle shape”.   Singing about wanting a woman with a Coca Cola bottle shape is  so Reggae/Dancehall circa ‘1992’. The video – Well it’s not particularly original. Woman dancing in a nightclub, champagne and silhouette shots. Yeah seen it all before. Pop A Bottle will be released July 12th on iTunes. []

UK MUSIC: LIL SIMZ – FALL TO THE FLOOR

Check out 16-year-old singer, rapper and producer Lil Simz (real name Simbi Ajikawo) debut single Fall To The Floor. I wasn’t expecting to like this at all, but the track is really catchy, with an old skool vibe running through it. I can also  see the youngsters really going for this and embracing her. Lil Simz here could have a mainstream hit on her hands. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss? *Am I the only one who thinks she sounds like a []

UK VIDEO: SELAH FT SADIE AMA & MZ BRATT – WOMAN’S WORLD

When I first posted Woman’s World on the site several months ago I said that I liked it, and still do. However I still think that they could have done without the guest rapper on the track. There are songs out there that don’t require a rapper to spit bars. This is one of them. But regardless I think the song will be a hit. The video – They all look beautiful standing in front of the black background, but the other []

UK MUSIC: TINIE TEMPAH – FRISKY

Tinie Tempah’s latest single Frisky sounds pretty good. His style of rapping sounds familiar though. But I can’t quite put my finger on who he reminds me of yet. Anyway I like the track but cannot stand the “chocolate biscuit”  line. It sounds out of place. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

UK MUSIC: CHIPMUNK – SUPERSTAR

Rapper Chipmunk tells us he wants to be a “superstar” in his latest single.  He wants the money, the fame blah blah blah, but “doesn’t want the stress”. Yeah good luck with that Chippy. When I look at Chipmunk and read his posts via Twitter, I can just tell it’s all gone to his head. The guy has one of the biggest ego’s out there. Yes as a rapper you’re supposed to have a certain air of confidence and swagger, but there []

UK NEWS: DOES RICHARD BLACKWOOD STILL WORK FOR CHOICE FM???

It has been brought to my attention that Choice FM host Richard Blackwood has been M.I.A (Missing In Action) for weeks now, and there has been no explanation for his absence. *Note I last tuned in to Choice back in 2006. This is just what I’ve been told. * Fellow blogger and radio host Miss Lala  posted recent video footage of Richard when he appeared on Tim Westwood’s BBC Radio show, and then went on to ask, “do Choice FM allow their []

UK MUSIC: ADAM DEACON AND BASHY FT PALOMA FAITH – KEEP MOVING

The highly anticipated new track Keep Moving from actor Adam Deacon (who up until very recently I didn’t even know rapped) rapper Bashy and Paloma Faith , premiered on the News Of The World website just a couple of minutes ago. Keep Moving is the first single taken from the 4.3.2.1 film soundtrack. I’ve never really paid that much attention to Paloma, but after listening to her on this track I must admit I like her voice. Paloma, Bashy and Adam actually []

UK MUSIC: SHADRACK AND THE MANDEM – GUNS & PORK

These guy’s have made my day! This is hilarious. 😀 “I take pics and I never say cheese. I take food and I never say please. I wear Avirex in 90 degrees. Nah swear down fam I’m hot!” ha ha ha. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss? More Shadrack And The Mandem madness!
