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?
