New Track: Day Ones – Ms Banks

Showing no signs of slowing down and continuing to prove why she is worthy of all the attention since first bursting onto the scene with her 2014 mixtape ‘Once Upon A Grind’, UK hip-hop artist MS BANKS returns with her new track ‘Day Ones’.

Produced by Donae’O and ProducerWez, ‘Day Ones’ is the addictive, future hit set to extend the summer vibes with its infectious beats and MS BANKS’ inimitable flow. Launched with the must-see visuals shot in south London, the track is available to stream and download everywhere on Friday.

‘Day Ones’ is the follow-up to MS BANKS’ explosive tracks ‘’Get Loose’, ‘OMG’ and ‘Vibes’ which were released earlier this year and saw her causing a stir with her potent lyrical skills and unmatched, deadly delivery which she recently took to the stage with fiery performances at Glastonbury Festival, the Boy Better Know Takeover show at The O2.

With MS BANKS building on the hysteria she has caused over the past year and sharing more new music and electric live performances throughout the rest of 2017 and already garnering support from outlets such as Dazed, Noisey, Dummy, The FADER, The Source, BBC 1Xtra, SBTV, GRM Daily and Link UP TV, there’s no doubt that she is ready to take her crown as the queen of UK hip-hop.

The Intent – A gritty thriller, packed with an incredible cast of UK actors and music artists made its debut in selected UK cinemas last Wednesday. BIG TOBZ has just dropped Expensive, taken from the incredible soundtrack that is loaded with exclusive records written specifically for the film, Ghetts, Scorcher, Stormzy, Fekky and Ms Banks all feature on the 18-track album that will be released to accompany the film.

The Big Tobz track and video give an insight to the world that is uncovered and the bold and eerie tale that is about to unfold in The Intent.

In a groundbreaking move that merges the world of UK film and music, co-directors Nicky Slimting Walker and Femi Oyeniran present an equally thrilling soundtrack that sets the tone and propels the audience throughout.

Set in the heart of London, the chilling tale of gang warfare, greed and drugs unfolds. Newfound infamy for the TIC crew affords the gang members the fast life, which catches the attention of all the wrong people and trust starts to become an issue, ultimately leading to their downfall. Infiltration, dishonour and ego are key to the plot but the key question is, what is “The Intent” of each player.

Featuring a cast of celebrated acting talent, The Intent also debuts a stellar line up of musicians in their first on-screen roles. MOBO nominated and former Topboy actor/musician Scorcher takes the lead as ‘Gunz’ and stars alongside Ashley Chin (Starred Up, Plastic), award-winning Hip Hop Duo Krept & Konan, Femi Oyeniran (Kidulthood), Jade Asha (As Bad as Me), Nicky Slimting Walker (It’s a Lot), Dylan Duffus (1 Day), Shone Romulus (Topboy), Sarah Akokhia (Hallows Eve) and rap royalty Fekky.

Inspired by great British vocalists such as Sam Smith, Kwabs and Lemar, AEO showcases his own brilliant vocals and songwriting dexterities, on this new offering, underpinned by a rich musical backdrop of piercing piano and guitar arrangements, minimalist drum patterns and thrilling choral melodies.

Speaking about the inspiration behind his  single, the powerhouse said: “the lyrics to Fight are inspired by my pursuit of a career in music, which has spanned five years so far. I’ve had to fight for what I believe is my first love and passion – music. This song tells that story, and it’s a personal note to myself, telling me not to give up”.
