FUSE-ODG-BlogIt’s OFFICIAL – Fuse ODG’s massive summer smash “Antenna” is in the UK Top Ten!! The track was a new entry at number 7 on the Official Chart, the second highest new entry just behind Union J who charted at number 6 with their new single  “Carry You”.

“Soundbwoy” Fires Up

3Beat136 Stylo G - Soundbwoy (Packshot)

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.
