this is the new single from Skepta, one of the main members of Boy Better Know, a London based UK Grime collective. the hook is delivered by Jay Sean, a British Asian singer who is two albums into his career but whose last release struck gold presenting him with a UK top 10 album and a record deal stateside with New Orleans rapper Lil’ Wayne‘s Cash Money Records. this should be the 3rd or 4th release from Skepta‘s sophomore album Microphone Champion
surprisingly the hook is enjoyable and the verses provide what is expected of them. the video and even to some extent the backing track do seem to be influenced by 50 Cent‘s Ayo Technology unfortunately. plus the length is rather short
but my main fault with this is…why…WHY is it seemingly impossible for a dark skinned sista to be teamed up with a dark skinned or ‘Black’ male artist in UK Black music videos?
however this is for another day
