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.

Our very own Sway joined Brit Award winning folk-rapper Ed Sheeran as part of his incredible show at London’s Roundhouse venue last night.
Sway contributed his vocal talents to an epic finale of ‘You Need Me’ during which Devlin, Chip and Wretch 32 also took to the stage with Sheeran.
Sway posted this pic on his instagram page.
The show ended a big week for Sway which saw him named “Ledge of the Week” by 1Xtra veteran Trevor Nelson…making him officially a superstar! Previous legends chosen by Trevor for this honour include Mos Def, JLo, D’Angelo, Chaka Khan, and Nas.
