New Track: I Need You – Sakyi 4

 SAKYI 4 are back with their fourth official release ‘I Need You’.

For their latest offering, the quartet put a modern stamp on 90s-style after hours R&B, accompanied with a seamless soulful bass, which will undoubtedly strengthen their reputation as one of the most exciting R&B groups from the UK.

‘I Need You’ follows their 2017 R&B/Afrobeat fused single, ‘Simmer Down’ which received support from the likes of R&B Magazine, BRASH! Magazine and New Wave District. The music video for the ‘Simmer Down’ clocked up over 20,000 views, premiered via The Link Up TV.

Since appearing on Britain’s Got Talent in 2015 – where Simon Cowell said they have ‘great potential’ – SAKYI 4 have caught the attention of SBTV founder Jamal Edwards with track ‘Bad As You’ and featured the music video on his platform. To date, the music video for ‘Bad As You’ has generated over 36,000 views.

Exposed to various styles of music from a young age, the North West Londoners turned their hand to song writing, citing Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson as strong influences. With smooth and weak-at-the-knees lyrics featured in ‘I Need You’, these guys are definitely on their way to possess the lyrical standard plus vocal delivery of nineties/noughties R&B favourites Joe, Ne Yo and Chris Brown.

‘I Need You’ is now available on all major digital/streaming platforms – including Spotify and iTunes

New Music Video: Blow: Matt Blvck

After releasing his newest single ‘Blow’ back in May, UK’s next male R&B break-out star, MATT BLVCK has recently dropped the visuals to accompany the catchy classic R&B tune and popular number ‘Nia’ taken from his second EP, ‘After Party’.

Hailing from South London,  MATT BLVCK has received continuous support from official Spotify playlists Spotify & Chill and Slow Jamz for his previous single ‘Nia’, and recent support from the newest Spotify UK RNB playlist for his latest single ‘Blow’

Writing for over three years and recording for over two, the slick soulful contender writes about the build up and breakdown of relationships, love and loss, and his change in focus. ‘Blow’ features a catchy acoustic hook atop a sexy RnB beat paired with Matt’s distinctive vocals which switch from sultry singing to a more urban spoken word.

Creating sexy R&B jams and sitting in a gap that has been missed over the past couple of years, Matt is growing in popularity within the R&B scene whilst paving the way with his own distinctive sound which plays on old school R&B inspired by the likes of Usher, whilst still remaining current and fresh.
