It’s the brand new video from Lemar protoge Effie.
I premiered her debut ‘Into Yellow’ last year and i predicted she was going to blow. Effie is most definitely on track to do exactly that with this pop R&B banger!
There’s an album still in progress and watchout for a killer Dubstep remix of this single courtesy of Stinkahbell.
In the meantime peep this original online exclusive of ‘Lonely’.

I’ve been a supporter of STB since the supa soulful ‘Enjoy Yourself’ which i hammered on my Radio 1xtra R&B show for a long azz time so i’m pleased to see the return of this multi talented artist (Rapper /Singer /Producer) with a refreshing track paying homage to the ‘B Boy’ fraternity.
He deserves recognition for the flava he’s prepared to bring to the game and i’m happy to start the ball rollin on that front.
‘B Boy Beef’ appears on the album Soul Movement vol. 1 released on BBE Records & available on iTunes…so cop it if you like it and enjoy the vid!

Cherri V has paid her dues and emerged with one of my favourite tunez of the minute.
It’s a straight up banger and and i’m very proud to have completed the double…Giving ‘The Show’ a world premiere on my BBC Radio 1xtra R&B show and now bringing you the beautifully shot video as a 24 hour exclusive on RH’s Blogizms.
Cherri V is my ‘One to watch’ right now, with a Roll Deep collaboration round the corner and her album release imminent. Things are hotting up for the firing redhead.
Release Date October 25th 2010…It’s on with ‘The Show’…
Enjoy!

CHERRI V – ‘THE SHOW’ (Release date – October 25th 2010)

At long last the official video has landed!!
I’ve been a long time supporter of Labz since literally playing a demo of an amazing record he penned, produced & performed called ‘Music Box’ back in July 2008. I was super happy when I heard he’d got signed to Simon Cowell’s record label Syco.
Infact Labz is the 1st non X Factor contestant to be signed to the label. That should tell you something about the calibre and genius of the bad boy behind the Tinie Tempah, ‘Pass Out’ & ‘Frisky’ beats.
He is one gifted individual and is definitely ready to set the charts alight with his debut single ‘Let The Sun Shine’ so without further ado.
Enjoy the video.

FAITH EVANS RETALIATES!

BEYONCE…MATTHEW IS STILL THE (MANAGEMENT) DADDY!

If you listen to my BBC Radio 1xtra R&B show you woulda heard me continuously smack Rian’s debut single ‘Getaway’ back in Jan / Feb 2010. It featured the Grime Godfather Wiley and now RP’s back with banger no: 2.
The follow up is called ‘Stereotypes’ due to drop October 25th.
Watch him storm the charts in 2010 and beyond.
