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.
Zane Lowe played the Sigma remix of the track on his show on Radio 1 on Wednesday night (he played the original mix in a previous show). Initial Radio 1 support for the single came from Toddla T and Rob Da Bank. Choice FM has been hammering it for weeks, so has Rinse FM.
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.
If you still haven’t seen the video take a look.

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.
