Jessica Wilde blends old soul with savvy street defiance on new single ‘Out Of My ooo’

Following her debut ‘Cry For Me’, which was premiered as BBC Radio 1xtra’s ‘Record Of The Week’, Brixton raised singer JESSICA WILDE is ready to sweep you off your feet with a sassy new single ‘Out Of My ooo’.

The single bursts with classic soul style blended with street savvy defiance. This creative fusion reflects her multicultural upbringing; brought up on her St Helenian mother’s obsession with jazz and soul, Jessica doused it with hip hop leanings and set it a light.

With its brass, bouncy bass and finger-clicking strut tempo it’s impossible not to get hooked on ‘Out Of My ooo’ and its attitude infused swing. It’s the type of top songwriting that has seen Jessica sign a publishing deal with Sony ATV and work with luminaries such as Ghetts and Tough Love. Another of her self-penned tracks ‘Strangers Love’ was recently released by renowned Korean K-pop label SM Entertainment and her recent co-write with Rudimental, ‘More Than Anything’ featured vocals from Emile Sande and made their album.

The session at Ne-Yo’s Hollywood studio, with producer Kizzo (Ne-Yo, Afrojack) was a defining moment for Jessica – not only because she survived a bizarre, high speed LA crash moments before the recording began, but because her own project was borne and the basis of her upcoming singles took form. Three months in LA, and several purposefully missed flights later, Jessica returned to London, ready to showcase herself and her music to the world…

With its festive glow and stylish addictive refrain ‘Out Of My ooo’ is set to put Jessica Wilde firmly on the map this winter as an unmissable diverse artist who embraces the best of classic songwriting and instills it with bite.

22-year-old singer RYAN DE LA CRUZ returns with a trap tinged, R&B joint ‘Stubborn’, the second single off his forthcoming EP ‘Syko’

Originally launched into the spotlight in 2017 with single ‘Know About Me’, which quickly surpassed one million views and was crowned ’the best rap video of 2017′ by DJ Semtex, Ryan has been a tearing up the scene for a while. He is now back in full force following the success of his collaboration with Ghetts and S Wavey on ‘Player’ and critically acclaimed single ’Syko’ earlier this year.

He injects soulful R&B feels into his fruitful plethora of inspiration, while making it an aim to sing about real-life, important issues.

This upcoming EP is a true testament to this and highlights Ryan’s unique way of thinking. ‘Syko’ is a conceptual body of work, playing on the different facets of his personality with singles like ‘Stubborn’, ‘Crazy’, ‘Rockstar’ and of course, ‘Syko’. The project is an ode to being accepting of who you are, and as Ryan states: “We’ve all got a sense of craziness, be cool with that, it’s ok to be syko”. Using his passion for playing on the juxtaposition of emotion and concept, each track and video really highlight his undeniable eye for fashion and art that has forever been setting him apart from the rest.

With ‘Stubborn’ as a somewhat warm up for what’s he has under his sleeve – so brace yourself for his conceptual greatness! This young artist has truly up’ed the ante this year and this is only the beginning.
