‘Eastenders’ is a dark track that has Ambush spitting bars about drama on the streets, sending a clear message out, that fights and wars are just not worth it especially over a girl. Ambush adds a catchy bar that repeats throughout the track ‘Beef over gyal is mad’ over a cold, melancholy, polished beat.
The video is more like a movie, telling three different stories with Ambush as the narrator and some famous faces acting such as Scorcher, Paigey Cakey, Vic Santoro and Jasmine Jobson.
Ambush says “The song is named Eastenders in comparison to the drama that happens on the soap which usually stems from matters of the heart. The story is actually a compilation of three different stories where people I know found themselves in between pride, jealousy, love and hate; and the consequences of their heated actions turned out extreme”.
‘Eastenders’ gives fans a little taster of what they can expect from the brand-new mixtape, setting the bar high, whilst giving fans a taster of what’s to come from the full-length project which they have been eagerly anticipating for a while.
Ambush arrived onto the scene in 2017 with his ‘Sauce Freestyle’, followed by ‘Already’. These tracks built him recognition and more singles followed including ‘Jumpy’, the remix to this track features Skepta & Chip and ‘My Size’ featuring Ms Banks. He has also recently featured on Poundz remix track ‘Opp Thot’ along with Snap Capone & Yxng Bane.
You just have to look at his streaming numbers to see his progression -the Jumpy Remix and Man Can’t tracks have both amassed over ten millions streams on DSP’s.
