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.
