New Music Video: Fvxk With You – Angel (ft. Rich Homie Quan)

fvxk-with-you-video-clip-angel

Hot on the heels of a huge summer which saw him bring his mesmerising vocals and must-see stage performances to both Wireless and V Festivals, UK R&B singer-songwriter ANGEL has shown no signs of slowing down with the release of his new EP HER earlier this month – which has already been streamed almost 400,000 times in less than two weeks – and now the brand new visual for his track Fvxk With You featuring US rap artist Rich Homie Quan.

Sampling 90s girl-group Jade’s iconic New Jill Swing jam Don’t Walk Away, ANGEL continues  with his unique mix of addictive 90s samples mixed with his distinctive, soulful vocals on the Harmony Samuels produced Fvxk With You. With west London meeting America’s ‘dirty south’, delivered courtesy of an explosive 16 bars from Rich Homie Quan, the Atlanta, Georgia hip-hop artist currently taking the music industry by storm, Fvxk With You has already started to make a huge splash across both sides of the Atlantic and is set to be taken to the new heights with the new visual, filmed in the rapper’s ATL neighbourhood.

HER EP is a collection of six slick and sultry R&B jams produced by Angel and showcasing his incredible songwriting ability and flair for hypnotic hooks and earworm melodies. Seeing him continue to build on the waves he created with his previous releases this year, the EP features two further new tracks, the soon-to-be new favourites Thelma and Louise and the Bobby Brown sampling Me & You. HER also includes Hop On featuring rising UK rapper Stefflon Don and the powerful Rude Boy featuring Haile from WSTRN, which along with the remix – which saw him join forces with JME (Boy Better Know), Wretch 32 and Tally – collectively amassed over 2 million combined streams and garnered support from Radio 1Xtra and Rinse FM.

Signed in the US by Motown records VP, Ezekiel Lewis (also responsible for forming the group The Clutch who have gone on to write and produce hits for Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Neyo and more), alongside Island Records, ANGEL continues to reinforce his position as one of the UK’s hottest R&B talents. With Pop and Oak (known for their work with the likes of Chris Brown, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj), Grammy award-winning producer Swiss Beatz, Neff U and Prince Charlez (who recently collaborated with Rihanna on Anti on the list as just some of the credible names Angel has recently worked with, there is no doubt that his debut album is going to rock both sides of the shores, making 2017 and beyond his for the taking.

HER EP Is out now on Island Records.
