Another song i’ve been hearing a lot on the radios is by Rita Ora called ‘Shine Ya Light’ from her number one album ‘Ora.
Personally i think Rita has really made a name for herself since featuring in DJ Fresh’s song where i found the music had overpowered her voice. You really can’t escape this girl she seems to be all over our screens.
She had also guest judged this years X Factor which is still at its Live Shows.
The video to this song isn’t as crazy to her previous single ‘How We Do’ its is more of a crowd gathering with lots of bikes following her to her spot, which is high above the crowd giving them a performance.
This would have been perfect if it had been released during the 2012 London Olympics it would suit the athletes to the T. Well better late than never, maybe we will be hearing this song as a soundtrack for future shows.
A song that has been getting a lot of airplay recently is a song by British rapper K Koke called ‘Turn Back’ featuring singer Maverick Sabre. The video dropped a couple of weeks ago and it pretty much sums up the London “street” life in 4 minutes.
Koke is part of UK’s most popular underground rap crews U.S.G. He first became known to Grime and HIp HOp fans when he featured on radio DJ, Charlie Sloth’s segment ‘Fire In The Booth’ 2 years ago.
He has now joined his fellow British singer Rita Ora, and recently been signed to Jay-Z’s record label Roc Nation, slowly but surely making his way up.
Some may have heard this song featuring Wale called ‘Roc For Life’ a few months ago…
The video to ‘Turn Back’ is deep, portrayed by a young girl living in a council estate in London; her life “shotting” (selling drugs) because that’s what she was taught by her mum.
I have to say this song is different from Koke’s previous songs which were mainly grime, whereas this single has a more mass appeal. It’s catchy but he still hasn’t lost his roots so big up to him!
Swami Baracus is back with his latest single ‘Hyper’ which is available to download from iTunes now!
Burban artist Swami has teamed up with producer Kami K well known for his production on the ‘Streets Of Bollywood Vol 1′ album, bringing you a song that’s a fusion of East and West. With Kami K’s Asian beats and Swami’s Hip Hop vibes this is a banger!
Swami’s fast flow matches the beat perfectly and it’s sure going to get you HYPER. The video is pretty simple with only Swami spitting his bars to the camera in different locations, it’s mostly the editing that has brought this video to life.
Jay Sean has dropped the music video for his single ‘Sex 101′ off his ‘The Mistress’ Mixtape released last year. This song and video also features his fellow YMCMB member Tyga.
As expected the video is full of some very hot ladies dressed in their finest lingerie in pretty much every room you can think of.
I was expecting a video like Jeremih’s ‘Birthday Sex’ but this black and white video is nothing like that although it is sensual. Definitely a video for the guys but Jay Sean isn’t any less of an eye candy for the ladies.
Raxstar has dropped another music video to his track ‘ The Secret’ featuring an up and coming Burban rapper Seminar who also produced this single. It’s from Raxstar’s latest free mixtape ‘Late On Time’.
Seminar has also sampled the Bollywood song ‘Chappa Chappa Charkha Chale’ from the 1996 movie ‘Maachis’.
Although this song is short it’s nice to see that there’s an official video for it. I’m looking forward to hearing more from Seminar as it’s the first i’ve heard of him.
The Truth is back with another single ‘You Think You Know Me’ featuring BBK’s very own Jammer on the track produced by The Truth’s right hand man Bobby Wonda.
This song is to the haters and to the people assuming they know someone by reading whats in the press. The video makes you think how much do we really know these artists we read about. We also get to see Jammer spitting his bars.
I like how even with a Grime artist on the track The Truth hasn’t given up the asian vibe to his song. Tum Kya Jaano translates to what do you know? which fits perfectly with this song.
Scorcher has brought his fellow MC’s along for the remix to his single ‘It’s All Love’ featuring Kano, Bashy, Wretch 32 and Talay Riley on the chorus.
This single is from his It’s All Love’ EP which is available to download from iTunes now for various remixes.
I heard this remix a good few weeks ago and was just waiting for the video, although it’s not much it’s nice to see the boys have fun on their own without any girls in sight.
Rappers turned actors Kano and Bashy have been in and out of the music scene for a while because of various movie and drama roles but I think we will be hearing more from them soon they went in hard! No doubt Wretch 32 is one of the UK’s finest lyricists and he proves it. Thanks to Scorcher we can finally see them together again.
