Baby Blue’s “Bump” Playlisted By Radio 1

3Beat137 Baby Blue - Bump (Blog Packshot)

It’s been a busy couple of days for 3 Beat’s top girl Baby Blue!

Her brilliant new single “Bump” has just been added to the BBC Radio 1 playlist and has taken the Number 1 spot on the Music Week Urban Club Chart. It’s also number 7 on the Shazam new release chart and number 29 on Shazam’s UK Top 200 (up from number 98 last week!). Great news for Blue and British female rappers.

“Bump” has been well supported over at 1Xtra too – Mistajam premiered the track and DJ Target and Charlie Sloth are both big fans. The single was play listed by 1Xtra, Kiss Fresh and Choice FM back in June. Early spins on Choice came from Firin Squad and from KC who has been championing “Bump” ever since! And the love is building over at Kiss FM. The Kiss Twitter feed was buzzing after  Justin Wilkes played it on his daytime show. It’s also had a play on Live@Kiss and evening spins from Jez Welham and AJ.

“Bump” is out on August 11th, but you can pre-order your copy on iTunes now.

The official video for “Bump” has had more than 420 thousand views on Vevo, did you see it yet?

3Beat136 Stylo G - Soundbwoy (Packshot)

It might be raining outside but there’s no damping down the appetite for Stylo G’s new single “Soundbwoy”. Last night Kiss FM’s DJ Hype played the massive Sigma remix of the track. If you haven’t heard it yet have a listen here.

Today Stylo’s interview with The Voice Online went live. In it he talks to Dionne Grant about why he wants to celebrate the term ‘Yardie’ and opens up about his father, Jamaican dancehall star Poison Chang, who died when Stylo was just 13.

The day ended with People’s Prince Charlie Sloth playing “Soundbwoy” yet again on his drivetime show on 1Xtra. Thanks for all the support Charlie!

Definitely a good day at the office…

“Soapbox” is Charlie Sloth’s Record of the Week

People’s Prince Charlie Sloth has chosen “Soapbox” – the new single from “Magnetic Eyes” star Baby Blue – to be his Record of The Week!   The track will play out every day this week on Charlie’s 1Xtra drivetime show between 4 and 7pm. Baby Blue will join him live in the 1Xtra studio on Thursday, April 4th.

Best known for her recent chart smash with Matrix & Futurebound, the London based singer, rapper, songwriter and all round superstar returns to her rap roots with “Soapbox”. The tough-talking street track has Blue throwing out punchline after punchline and features the production skills of hot new talent Diztortion (currently grabbing attention for his work on Stylo G’s “Soundbwoy” and Lethal Bizzle’s “They Got It Wrong” featuring Wiley).

If you didn’t already see the video for “Soapbox”, made by SBTV, you can check it out here.

Charlie Sloth debuted the track in March and Blue joined him on the phone…jokes! If you missed it the first time round you can listen back here.

Since then it’s been getting spins across 1Xtra (DJ Target, Viz, Nick Bright), Choice FM (Woody, Manny Norte, Firin Squad, Ras Kwame) and Rinse FM.

Sway Unveils New Single “Still Sway & Kane”

1Xtra listeners got a treat on Friday when legendary UK rapper Sway joined Charlie Sloth for a full 30 minutes of chat and banter.

Listen back here.

Sway also treated Charlie to an exclusive first play of his brilliant new single “Still Sway & Kane”. The track features the lyrical talents of seminal East London rapper and star of Channel 4’s “Top Boy” Kano, along with upcoming talent Tigger Da Author (who joined Sway and Charlie on the show). The single got a lot of love from Charlie and his listeners!

Inspired by Sway’s  favourite producer – hip-hop superstar Dr Dre – the track samples the Dre classic “Still D.R.E”. “Still Sway & Kane” had existed in demo form for some time but a chance meeting with Dre prompted Sway to release it as a single, putting a sharp UK spin on one of the most recognised songs in rap history.

The teaser video for the “Still Sway & Kane” went live on Vevo this weekend. If you didn’t see it already you can watch it here. AND there’s a behind the scenes video too.

Sway was on the road all weekend supporting Trey Songz in Leeds and Birmingham. If you missed him, you can still catch him live in the next couple of months.

Sway will headline Proud Galleries in London this Friday, February 1st – info AND he’s appearing with Example later in the month – dates.
