Song of the Day: Alive – Yung Fume – Alive (ft. Chanal)

U.S loved Londoner YUNG FUME has partnered up with Chanal from much loved girl group M.O’s for single ‘aLive’.

The smooth ambient smash features the unmistakable tones of Yung Fume. His hazed out, emotive delivery topped with auto-tune is met with the sweet harmonies and soothing edge from Chanal as the pair create an honest and captivating drop, based on their own journey of emotion, reminding us that even on the darker days of life, we’re still ‘aLive’ and nobody is on their own.

Having become one of the UK’s frontrunners in conquering the U.S, Yung Fume has built an impressive profile to date. From reaching an exceptional homegrown audience and performing throughout the UK, the rumble of global exposure quickly developed following remixes of his record ‘Watch Me Flex’ by artists like Wizkid & Ty Dollas Sign. Leading to collaborations with top producer Zaytoven as well as Heavyweights Lil Durk & Young Nudy, Yung Fume has built a solid repertoire, releasing two projects this year including ‘Noughts & Crosses 4’, which saw him work with the likes of Young Adz, Lancey Foux, Fee Gonzales & Zinozee, & solo drop ‘The Other Way’.

Exposing true vulnerability and an insight in to the depths of Yung Fume, ‘aLive’ is an impressive version of the young star that both the UK and U.S are continuing to hail up.

Song of the Day: Too Good – Asha Gold

ASHA GOLD‘s ‘Too Good’ is the product of a time in this young artist’s life when pressures were coming down on her to leave these creative pursuits for more so-called “practical” endeavours.

Following a heated debate, the 19-year-old West Londoner took to her bedroom where she recorded a voice note of the pre-chorus and chorus for ‘Too Good’. The next day, Asha finished up the song in around ten minutes on the piano; this being all the reassurance she needed to stay on track with her music career.

Reflecting on that time, Asha Gold says:

“Although deep down I knew I wanted to pursue music, it was impossible to trust myself because it felt like no one was trusting me. I battled with the pressures and opinions of those close to me who I respected, but in the end I had to pull the trigger and decide for myself.”

It’s understandable why Asha Gold faced this initial backlash, considering that she’s the first in her family to outwardly express these creatives ambitions, with no one on either her Mum’s English side or her Dad’s Indian side setting out the footsteps for her to follow in. That being said, even if you’re not battling with this same decision, Asha believes that…

“Too Good can resonate with people facing any sort of decision – it’s a positive song about backing yourself even when it feels like others don’t. I had to laugh at the situation in the end, and say “I’m too good to be having sleepless nights about this”, it’s going to work out.”

‘Too Good’ was completed with production from Dilush, whose vibrant style accentuates Asha Gold’s intuition for beat-led R&B, electronic and pop lines.
