Song of the Day: So Weak – Ama Louise

North London songstress AMA LOUISE gives us the infectious ‘So Weak’, her highly anticipated follow up to previous hit ‘No Angel’.

Ama teams up once again with producer AntiWave to deliver yet another flawless offering, laced with her signature sweet vocals.

Bearing an unmistakable 90’s influenced vibe, ‘So Weak’ comes accompanied with stunning visuals shot by DON Productions. Both the audio and video are poignantly reminiscent of classic R&B anthems that went before, a refreshing UK take on an US inspired sound.

Born in Paris and raised in Tottenham, Ama Louise is steady rising as one of the UK’s most promising R&B talents. Growing up listening to a plethora of different genres such as Jazz, with Alicia Keys also a huge inspiration for her, Ama is undoubtedly proving that UK R&B is here to stay.

Ama Louise’s music has been supported on notable UK radio stations such as KISS FM, Capital Xtra, No Signal and Pulse 88, with plans to further make her mark within the R&B scene across the UK and beyond. Have a listen to Ama Louise’s track below..

Song of the Day: Reggie Rocket – SPRTYK

The Bronx, New York, is home to many mythical rap figures. From Fat Joe and KRS-One, down to Grandmaster Flash, Slick Rick and Big Pun — it’s no secret the concrete-bound borough is home to some generational talent. SPRTYK is no exception.

The NY rap queen is the embodiment of a renaissance artist, turning her hand to any instrumental and tackling it head-on. For confirmation, look no further than SPRTYK’s latest offering, ‘Reggie Rocket’.

‘Reggie Rocket’ pulls heavily from the hard-cut New York rap delivery reminiscent of The LOX, Mobb Deep, Remy Ma and Method Man. With a legendary crop of inspiration and boatloads of style, SPRTYK conjures up a trap-flavoured street anthem. Don’t let the track’s two-minute length fool you: producer Michael Mattice II scatters bellowing 808 drum kicks, a thick, bouncy bassline and quotable ad-libs throughout.

Before ‘Reggie Rocket’, SPRTYK dropped the Nephew Hesh-produced heater ‘Project Heat’. With a colour-bursting, left-field video companion video to match, SPRTYK’s recent output stands as a meteoric comeback for the Bronx poet.

Song of the Day: Smoke Castles – Amy Steele

With sultry vocals and a distinctive tone, London based Singer Songwriter AMY STEELE presents her latest single, ‘Smoke Castles’, a mix Kate Bush and Sade with alternative tapestries of soul.

‘Smoke Castles’ is about the distance created between two people when the foundations they built, were not strong enough to sustain the weight of the relationship. It’s about a lack of clarity in communication, and the discomfort of uncertainty that brings. As Amy sings out: ‘Speaking smoke, you’re so unclear, white ribbons have tied up the air.’

With Amy recently signing a deal with EMPIRE, this is set to be an exciting new chapter for the young starlet. Have a listen to her below…

‘Peter Pan’ encapsulates Louyah’s ambition to live a life where you are unapologetically yourself. He states, “Peter Pan is honestly a shot at the labels. I’ve been ducked/pushed and always set back as an artist. I’ll never let anyone judge me for what I am and who I’m supposed to be. It’s fine they don’t want the music now. I’ll keep pushing and making my dreams come true!”

“My influences are the ones who surround me” states Louyah, however Young Pwavy, Kevin Boris, Gervs, Dakun and Nick Zullo are up there when it comes to musical inspiration.
