Song of the Day: Belinda – Moh (ft. Mr Eazi)

Featuring one of Africa’s finest Mr Eazi, MOH’s debut single,‘Belinda’, leans to the soft, smooth and romantic side of Afrobeats, both artists proclaim their love for ‘Belinda’.

With a chilled-out beat produced by Lexyz that has a percussive drum pattern softly cantering through the heart of it, ‘Belinda’ sees MOH and Mr Eazi soulfully dance across the record creating a modern-day love song.

Although a new artist for 2020, MOH has been changing the Ghanaian soundscape with his refreshing sound, establishing himself as a cultural icon, both within the UK and Africa. With a unique style and being a Ghanaian of Middle Eastern and British decent, he combines musical influences from his myriad of colourful cultures into his music. Having started writing and performing music whilst in secondary school, MOH went on to record music and partner with other top artists from Ghana to continue perfecting his initial sound.

Following his completion of higher education and achieving a BSC in construction technology and management, music is now taking the stand for the rising star. Making a long-awaited debut in the Afrobeats scene, Moh gives us fresh new track ‘Belinda’.

Jeffrey James Shares ‘Aftermath’ Video

Nashville-based musician JEFFREY JAMES unveils the official music video for his new single, ‘Aftermath’. Working within the creative confines of lockdown, Jeffrey pieced together home footage of himself and his wife in Trouville-sur-Mer in Normandy, France. A sweet, authentic glimpse into James’ own love story, the video brings the romance of the piano-driven ballad to new heights.

The new video comes on the heels of Jeffrey James’ appearance on NBC’s Songland, where Jeffrey worked with Ryan Tedder on an original track titled ‘We Could Be Heroes’ for Country legend Martina McBride.

Earlier this year, Jeffrey released his ‘East London’ EP. Recorded in London with engineer Geoff Swan (Charli XCX, Ed Sheeran, Coldplay) and producers Jackson Dimiglio-Wood (Shawn Mendes), Dan Weller (SikTh), and Dan McDougal (Liam Gallagher), the 5-track record beautifully fuses Jeffrey’s Nashville influences with the UK’s blue-eyed soul sounds.
