Rising UK Artist & Songwriter James Smith New Single ‘Rely On Me’

Following his triumphant, sold-out performance at London’s Omeara, rising UK artist and songwriter James Smith releases his gorgeous new track “Rely On Me”. A self-produced powerful ballad that will continue the growing hype around one of the UK’s most exciting young singer/songwriters.

An expansive, vulnerable track that marks a new benchmark for the young artist able to balance huge sounds with vivid, emotive storytelling, “Rely On Me” follows on from a string of releases and Smith’s debut EP “Little Love” last year.

Continuing to blaze a path through the pop landscape in 2019, James has raced to over 126M total streams, achieving eyebrow-raising numbers for his recent releases “Tell Me That You Love Me” (68M+ streams) and “T-shirts” (33M).

Born in Upton Park and just turned 20 years old with European tour dates and his first EP in the bag, James continues his precocious, self-made reputation as a young star in waiting. Critical support has also been swift across tastemakers including NOTION and CLASH MAGAZINE as well as significant blog hype.

James is emerging as one of the year’s most reactive homegrown talents – mark as a definite One to Watch for 2020.

Emerging British Artist Amelia Carey Returns With Her Latest Single ‘Love Is Love’.

Helmed by buzzing producers AZTX and written by Amelia with AZTX and Push Baby’s Danny Wilkin, ‘Love Is Love’ is a heart wrenching open letter to Amelia’s parents to accept her as an openly gay young woman. The track depicts a struggle that millions of LGBT+ people around the world will know all too well, yet the track proudly offers comfort and support to the LGBT+ community. 

With her parents asking “will you ever be normal?” Amelia’s profoundly heartfelt lyrics advocate for the normalisation of homosexuality: “Are you finding it tough because I’m growing up / And I want to be touched by the woman I love?” she solemnly asks them over deep synths and an infectious pop-trap beat, before declaring “I’m still gonna love her tomorrow / I know it’s a hard pill to swallow”.

Amelia’s authentically raw first two singles – 2018’s ‘Over You’ and 2019’s ‘Happy Tears’ – made waves with critics, achieving high praise from the likes of CLASH and Alfitude thanks to her unflinching refusal to bow down to heteronormative ideals.

‘Love Is Love’ is the perfect encapsulation of Amelia’s admirable strength of character and proves Amelia has a great future not just in music, but as a vital role model in the LGBT+ community who is unafraid to speak her truths.

Egypt’s pre kai ro Is Going Global As He Drops DEBUT Visual & Single “Ten Outa Ten”

With PartyNextDoor and Drake dropping some new music, pre kai ro decides he wanted to join in on the fun as well. Today the rising star from Egypt officially delivers his powerful debut video & single “Ten Outa Ten”.

Having offered an exploration into the more vulnerable sides of his persona with his last 2 singles ‘Baby Boy’ and ‘Mercy,’ pre kai ro’s latest offering in the single ‘Ten Outa Ten’ is one that revolves mainly around a showcasing of his newly unhinged levels of bravado. 

The singer/songwriter seamlessly blends elements of Hip Hop, R&B and Trap music as he successfully revisits his mood in his late 2018 single ‘Blink Twice’ – a more aggressive stance regarding his relationship with love, lust and his position in the music game (Blink Twice is now approaching 1 million streams on Spotify). More prominently focusing on an obviously interested female figure, kai ro makes it clear he wants nothing to do with her emotionally and goes on to disrespect both her and her significant other. Ten Outa Ten is an aggressive, emotional retaliation within a trap-infused R&B record made with the purpose of provoking those pre kai ro has taken aim at.

The Egypt native is a must listen! pre kai ro continues to grow a cult like following as he drops a new single every 24th of the month. With his numbers and fan base rising daily, pre kai ro is displaying just why he is forming into a global superstar. Don’t sleep on pre kai ro for too much longer, 2020 will be a brilliant year for the young artist.

#InTheTrap : SwooshGod Discuss On 1st Ever show Supporting Nipsey, Creative Nike Collabs, IG Reset, Embraced In UK vs US With Sarah Harrison

Long Island artist SwooshGod is in his comfort zone in the streets of West London, citing W10 (Ladbroke Grove) as his second home thanks to UK artist AJ Tracey whom he cites as showing him love more than his own city, which he feels somewhat let down by. The pair have enough music recorded to put out a joint project.  

He narrates a special pivotal point in his life, around the time he was playing basketball in high school (2014), when he got the opportunity to open for Nipsey Hussle in North Carolina alongside his brother who inspired the artist name “Hots” which he used to go by. Eventually wanting to divorce from the name, he landed on SwooshGod for his proficiency in Nike products during his days of employment with the brand, a time he reminisces on further explaining certain limitations.
