“Soundbwoy” Fires Up

3Beat136 Stylo G - Soundbwoy (Packshot)

Things are hotting up for UK dancehall star Stylo G as excitement about his latest single “Soundbwoy” continues to build.

The single was added to the BBC Radio 1Xtra playlist last week. And this week “Soundbwoy” burst into the Music Week Urban Club Chart at number 7 – the week’s highest new entry.

Zane Lowe played the Sigma remix of the track on his show on Radio 1 on Wednesday night (he played the original mix in a previous show). Initial Radio 1 support for the single came from Toddla T and Rob Da Bank. Choice FM has been hammering it for weeks, so has Rinse FM.

And on Saturday “Soundbwoy” was the soundbed for the ‘Showboat’ feature on Sky Sport’s popular magazine show Soccer AM.  

That sent the single shooting to Number 2 on the iTunes Reggae chart!

“Soundbwoy” is released on May 26th but is available to pre-order on iTunes now with remixes from DiGenius, Sigma and Ross Couch.

If you still haven’t seen the video take a look.

“Charge” – It’s a Wrap!

Sway & the MINI…

There was major excitement at 3Beat HQ today when the video for Sway’s brand new banger “Charge” landed.

Filmed in East London last week, the video is a beautifully shot call to follow your dreams. We especially love the rooftop shots, featured vocalist Mr Hudson’s close ups and Sway’s leather jacket! What do you think? Take a look here.

Sway video shoots are notorious for attracting famous faces who want to show their support to the UK’s premier lyricist. And the “Charge” shoot was no exception. Ed Sheeran came along for a cameo and brought a mate with him – One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles!

Earlier in the week, the single was added to BBC Radio 1Xtra’s C-list (a massive six weeks ahead of release). It was also Twin B’s record of the week on the 1Xtra breakfast show.

Sway popped in to chat to Twin B on Friday. Listen back here

Zane Lowe, MistaJam and Target have also been showing their support.

“Charge” is the third cut to be taken from Sway’s forthcoming album ‘The Deliverance’. It’s out on December 2nd.
