Still flying from the success of his last album Wretchrospective, North London’s Wretch 32 returns with the first single from his forthcoming album ‘Black & White’, the track is entitled ‘Superhero‘ and although the concept may not be new, the style and deliverance of the track most definitely is.
Produced by and featuring the talented Thy Maryan of Frsh entertainment, Superhero is an up-tempo track capable to sound just as good through your headphones as it will through your favourite clubs speakers (So start requesting).
Thy Maryan fuses deep toned synths with heavy kicks for this banger, similar to the producers previous hit with G-Frsh – Do It, the tune is powerful in feeling, perfect for one of the UK’s premier emcees to deliver his fast flowing rhymes. Wretch 32 does not dissapoint, “Look babe, I can make it thunder, might save the day if I save your number, might hate to wait babe wayne can wonder..and I ain’t like him, no..cah I’m nuttin’ like ya ex man, I’m suttin’ like an X Man, so assume I’m a mutant, I’m immune to the nuisance..”
The success of Wretchrospective brought him greater respect and acknowledgement as an artist, therefore allowing him to try something different, and linking up with Thy Maryan has given Wretch 32 just that.
The video, Directed by fellow emcee Scorcher and Staplehouse productions, offers a good visual for the track, personally I would have liked to have seen more, as both the track and the artist possess that mainstream quality, at the same time I feel that this video manages to capture the song in a mainstream light as well as having a street feel which is essential for urban artists.
As a whole this is a really good track from Wretch 32 and Thy Maryan, definitely one to push both higher and further into the deserved spotlight.
