Song of the Day: Rico – AD

Following on from his last single, ‘All Of That’, which gained great traction at the beginning of 2020, AD‘s single ‘Rico’, showcases the Portuguese spitter’s versatility on the track which no doubt leaves the listener hyped and wanting more. ‘Rico’ is an up-tempo, gritty, hip hop track where AD slams down a bold storyline, comparing it to the synopses of the hit film “Paid In Full”, where ‘Rico’ isn’t someone to be trusted.

Yvonne went on to independently release her debut EP; ​Eye, The Cauldron of Morning ​ (2018) which feature her previous soul-stirring single, ​’Metamorphosize’, released under ​Yamcog.

Star Song: Positive Change – Bobb Shaw

Bobb Shaw

Today’s song is Positive Change by British indie rocker BOBB SHAW. The single is coming from the EP Stars Will Fall, released in June.

Stars Will Fall has made quite an impact, as the first single from the EP, Whiskey was aired on BBC Introducing Leeds – just  a few hours of its release! Days later, he was approached by the producer of The Voice UK to attend an audition.

No doubt his fruitful journey is set to continue with  Positive Change. This laid-back single, which is topped off by this guy’s soothing  and slightly husky vocals, is perfect  for relaxing on a hot summer’s day.

If you like the sound of Positive Change, it’s worth heading over to his SoundCloud page to check out his EP.
