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.
