A-List – Midnight Lover

If you have not heard already, A-List is the new UK ‘super’ group created by and featuring Wiley, along side Mz Bratt, J2K, Wrigley, Shola Ama, Brazen, Kivanc & Sadie Ama.

There is a lot of hype surrounding the project, Wiley himself has high hopes and tipped the group for huge success in the coming future, here is the first single from their project:

A-List – Midnight Lover:

After a few listens, I still have the same opinion, i reckon with the right video and marketing this could meet the expectations set by Wiley himself, the stand out for me is the chorus, Wiley creates the perfect urban-mainstream cross over chorus, it has an urban foundation with its lyrics and delivery, however its layout and tone offers a mainstream impact, incredibly infectious, it is the single’s strongest point. In all honesty, the verses did not impress me amazingly, however Wrigley’s verse has already caught on, as will the rest i’m sure, another strong point is the variation in vocals, delivery and styles, it offers the song much needed depth. With the right support this could be the start of something special.

I respect Wiley’s initiative to create something new and refreshing amonst the scene, as somebody who thrives on breaking stereotypes and pushing quality music to a larger audience that it deserves, I can see the benefits of this project if executed correctly.

Expect a lot more from Wiley & A-List as the UK urban scene continues to elevate to newer hights.

Mz Bratt – I Like You ft. Sadie Ama

The highly anticipated video for her second release is finally here:

Mz Bratt returns to our screen with another good track and video to go with it.

I Like You, featuring Sadie Ama (who proves that looks and talent run in the family), is another anthem for the ladies, so many songs about the ‘girl next door’ have been made, by women too, so here is a fresh new twist with this ‘boy next door’ number, the boy being played by everyone’s favourite bad boy (no not Diddy) rising emcee (or I should say artist) Griminal. This song has a lot of substance, Mz Bratt is being herself and it shows through her music, many female emcees feel the need to approach their music similar to the men and that leads them away from their real audience, this is not the case with Mz Bratt, this is one of the reasons (out of the long list of many) why she is so likeable. With Sadie on the feature, plus cameos by Tulisa (Ndubz) and Lady Ny, there is a strong sense of female unity, not to mention that they all are highly talented, as a whole this video has such a good vibe, it is surprisingly not just for the girls, I reckon the guys (who are not afraid) can watch and enjoy this too, plus the song is catchy and most of all, clean and light-hearted (Unlike many female emcees in the past).

Mz Bratt has impressed me so much in such a short space of time, more so because I know that she is capable of lyrically stepping up to the male emcees, however she is more about the music and fans and has been real and honest with her music, her mixtape was a good insight and I am looking forward to the album.

A truly Special woman and artist.

I Like Her..I mean, I Like You ..out soon!!
