South London songstress, CHERYLL unveils her last video from her debut EP, ‘Transition’, which possesses a theme of relationships and love interests.
Bearing the EP’s theme, ‘What About Us?’ has the making of a 90s R&B slow-jam classic, which provides a dynamic experience, thanks to her sing-rap performance.
Cheryll has started off 2021 on strong note with the EP and the video is sure to keep the momentum going well into the summer. Expect more singles for this promising newcomer throughout the year…but for now, check out the video for ‘What About Us?’, shot and edited by videography duo Tory and Jolloff.
Artist/producer Callie Reiff and singer-songwriter Kaeyra have teamed up to deliver single, ‘Heart Ain’t Safe’.
The track represents another bold progression for multi-hyphenate act Callie Reiff who has been making waves this year with a string of impressive singles. On ‘Heart Ain’t Safe,’ her soaring soundscapes and hypnotizing beats provide a cinematic base for Kaeyra’s soulful vocals — it’s the perfect example of Callie’s signature ‘indie-club’ sound, which she describes as a fusion of “pop/indie-forward vocals and New York club energy production.”
“‘Heart Ain’t Safe’ is about that one person who is always in the back of your mind. Wherever you are at, you know if they were there you would ditch the party to be with them,” Callie says. “I tried to mimic the lyrics with a somewhat dark feeling bassline, intense drums, and an energy that makes you want to be in the middle of a dark rave dancing with all of your friends.”
Her debut single ‘Helpless’ produced by ENZ Sounds amassed over 170,000 views on YouTube and over 68,000 streams on Spotify with no mainstream push, and now 17 year old V’NESSA returns with another stunning single ’Trust In You’. Centered around mistrust, she opens up a three minute dialogue addressing the struggles young people face during the course of a relationship.
Born in Italy, but raised in South London this exceptional young woman grew up as one of five siblings with a passion for singing and remembers practising every day to perfect her craft. V’Nessa’s ability to sing, write and produce her own music inspired her to study at BCE college where she has been able to enhance her knowledge of music and skills. A prolific songwriter, V’Nessa pens mesmerising R&B songs about lost love, broken trust and youthful ambitions sitting somewhere between Rihanna, Jhene Aiko and Summer Walker with a distinctly London vibe.
Look out for her debut EP dropping this Summer. For now, check out the official video for the single below…
BENNY BIZZIE eases into the summer months with a new exotic sound produced by Victizzle (Ghetts, Chip, Ms Banks) and Cez Presents. ‘Headroom’ is perfect for summer nights and warm escapes with a liquid-chilled groove and Afro-inspired elements.
A song about building trust in a relationship without any misconceptions and over-bearing pressure, Bizzie holds steady and stands his ground when met with accusations and distrust at the early stages of a new relationship.
Bizzie’s recent E-Motion EP has gained over 500k views on YouTube and over 200k streams on Spotify with support from Link up TV and Sentric Music and regional radio.

JESSICA WILDE lands a surprise A/B side release, ‘Cruel P2’/ ‘Drugs Don’t Work’, as a 2nd part to her latest single ‘Cruel’ which landed her a feature on the official UK ‘Pride’ Spotify Playlist.
‘Cruel’ see’s Wilde delving back into a relationship that enabled her to come out as bisexual but also led her into addiction – a subject she’s tackling on her debut forthcoming album.
‘Drug’s Don’t work’ dives deeper into this toxic love story, a brutally honest description of what went down and how a relationship was controlled by addiction. This song takes on a raw, stripped back sound with gritty guitars and Wilde’s rap to tell the story, ‘When the Drugs don’t work, we just get hurt’.
The track comes with a one take visual, Wilde boldly telling the story to camera as she walks through the streets with onlookers caught off guard as she belts out the lyrics.
‘Cruel P2’, keeps the original ‘Cruel’ beat produced by Jay Nebula and Grammy award winning producer Kiris Houston (The Disciples, Little Mix). It embodies a summer haze 90’s classic hip hop and R&B vibe, layered with Jessica’s sultry, pleading vocals. This version has a twist, on the second verse we hear rising RnB star Laville who has collaborated with the likes of Big Narstie, Foreign Beggars, opened the O2 stage for John Legend and racked up over 500,000 streams for his latest album ‘The Wanderer’. His powerful and soulful vocals intwined with Wilde’s silky tones take the track into a whole new world.
Coming off the back of impressive Double A side release explicitly titled ‘Wasted’ / ‘F*ck U I’m Sober Now’, ’Body’ and ‘Cruel’, all part of her forthcoming album, a ride through mad parties, drunken nights, toxic relationships, love, regret, self-loathing, self-empowerment, self-love and going sober. Wilde opens a doorway into her past, returning full circle to her South London roots.
