Song of the Day: Know Your Worth – 91′ Thompson

91′ THOMPSON‘s latest track well deserves a place on NEW LEASE MUSIC’s Song of Day hotspot for its ambient combo of hip-hop and R&B, which works perfectly in unison with Thompson’s slick flow – who tells all the ladies out there (in around about way) to know their worth.

New Track: Black Crow – Louis Baker

LOUIS BAKER has been under the radar since the release of his single ‘Addict’ a year ago…however his the newest release ‘Black Crow’ makes up for his absence from the scene.

Written and produced in Sydney in just six hours, the soul-fuelled groover  sounds like alchemy freed from an artist’s DNA, rather than the chiseled result of time and toil. Produced by Grammy-nominated Steve Rusch (Solange, Miguel, Rhianna), the deeply organic production bears a strong message of exorcising those demons and leaving the past behind in order to gain wisdom through experience.

Prior to ‘Black Crow’, the New Zealand singer/songwriter has earned ten million Spotify plays worldwide for songs including ‘Rainbow’ (4.7 million) and ‘Addict’ (over 850,000). ‘Addict’ also reached number six on the Radioscope Alt Charts and was premiered on MTV.

LOUIS BAKER proves that good things comes in time…when you hit play on ‘Black Crow’, you’ll hear why…

New track: He Ain’t Me – Ricardo Williams

Produced by Sillkey (Wiley, Jacob Banks, Vanessa White) ‘He Ain’t Me’ takes you through a real journey with Ricardo’s mellifluous vocal. The peak is reached at the bridge where his effortless harmonies demand the attention of anyone who is listening. Sillkey’s contemporary beats balance perfectly with Ricardo’s naturally nostalgic vocal style and the song truly displays him as arguably one of the brightest current R&B artists from the UK.

Talking about the meaning behind the song, Ricardo says “I wanted to write a song specifically for the ladies. I’m not going to lie, women have it hard. A lot of the time it’s us men that do not make it easy, so I wanted to write something to remind women that there are good guys out there. I want women to know that they are special, beautiful, valued and more than enough, despite their past experiences and what they’ve been told or shown!”

‘He Ain’t Me’ follows Ricardo’s last single ‘Come Over’ which was featured as DJ Ace’s Track of The Week on BBC 1Xtra. He partnered with fellow R&B peers J Warner, Jordan King and Mark Asari for the remix which premiered on BBC 1Xtra. Support was also received from Manny Norte on Capital Xtra, The Beat London, Pulse88 Radio, Reprezent, Westside FM, Mi-Soul and more.

Overall 2018 is going to be a big year with the release of new music and performances as Ricardo looks forward to supporting Faith Evans on her upcoming London, Birmingham and Manchester tour dates on 20th-22nd July.

The big man is back with some serious force…check out ‘He Ain’t Me’.
