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.

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.
