The Weekly Roundup 10.06.22

Welcome everyone! Here’s to another week and another brand-new roundup!  

Let’s dive in…  

Track 1 (Hip Hop/Rap) 

Sophie DeMasi, Double C, S-Town, MsBambii, 23Trill & G2 Slime – “West Side Story” (One Vibes’ Grenfell Tribute) 

The Weekly Roundup 10.06.22 

Starting off this week’s roundup we present to you West London’s up and coming artists Sophie DeMasi, Double C, S-Town, MsBambii, 23Trill & G2 Slime with their powerful track produced by platinum selling producer Toddla T, that is backed with emotional yet melodious violins, flutes & trumpets from the talented youthful orchestras (The Nucleo Project & The Mangrove Steelband). This has everything you would want in a passionate track bringing forward their poetic wisdom with descriptions of what it is like to be raised in the local area of Ladbroke Grove, West London. Sweet singing from Sophie DeMasi with her heartfelt chorus as the impressive and euphonious flows from Double C, S-Town, MsBambii, 23Trill & G2 Slime add to the bittersweet vibe. A beautiful tribute for the 72 people that sadly passed away during the tragedy of Grenfell tower, on 14 June 2017. As we approach the 5-year mark it is a reminder to appreciate our time and take a moment to pay respects to the ones less fortunate. Despite the subject surrounding this track, it’s all about positivity, unity and enjoying the music. A catchy song with good intentions and a positive cause behind the scenes, as all proceeds made from this single will be donated to One Vibe, a charity which aims to unite and support the young people of North Kensington post-Grenfell. If you want to support this worthy listen, it is available to stream on Spotify, Apple & YouTube!

Track 2 (Afrobeat) 

Burna Boy Last Last

The Weekly Roundup 10.06.22 

In at track number two we have Nigerian singer-songwriter Burna Boy, with his latest single “Last Last”. Burna Boy has previously shown he can always deliver a fantastic performance with his distinct voice and getting straight into the track, some may notice it brilliantly samples 2000s hit, Toni Braxton – Wasn’t Man Enough. The sample goes too well with the afro sound! An instant banger that gets your shoulders spinning. On this song we listen to Burna Boy talk about his conflicted feelings, with a steady subject of heartbreak throughout the song. We quickly learn his mindset as he begins verse one bragging, telling his competition that they will be amazed by his accomplishments and the conversations on his status isn’t worth his time to talk, for he determines himself as a winner by default and won’t take any insult from anyone. However, his flourishing success can’t heal his heart as he tells the consumer he feels troubled because “she manipulates my love ooh, hmm”. Following up, the catchy chorus indicates how he is dealing with his love issues, saying he is not holy so therefore he will not try to hide his discomfort given how much he has cried already. The tuneful hook finalizes with “I need Igbo and shayo” (Weed and Alcohol), spoken in the language of Yoruba. Wrapping up, he states that no matter your position in life, your feelings are always going to be like a rollercoaster (Jangolova) and despite still holding on to some feelings from his heartbreak, he must let it go and have some igbo and shayo. His melodic sorrow oxymorons the immaculate vibe, as Burna Boy has another hit on his hands with “Last Last” and it won’t be the last time hearing that. available to listen on Spotify, Apple, Deezer & YouTube!
