So many reasons that this has just taken over (already) as #MyNewFavouriteThing (sorry Jazmine!):
(1) Have a listen
(2) listen again
(3) And again
(5) I know…!
The end vocals get me every time…
Emerging UK artist MNEK (pr: Em-En-Ee-Kay) singing here like his vocal chords have been kissed by angels is only 19 years old, can you imagine? 19!
As a singer, song-writer AND producer this young (Igbo) man is so talented and inevitably his star is now definitely on the ascent in the UK.
He first came to my attention on Soundcloud with his ‘refix’ of Disclosure’s “White Noise”, as soon as I heard his version I fell in love with his voice and had the track on hardcore repeat for weeks; MNEK currently features in the UK charts on Gorgon City’s “Ready for Your Love” which the Soundcloud track is the stripped back version of.

*pauses to sip tea*
Anyhoooo here’s the footage…

Is it just me or does Beyoncé’s response or LACK THEREOF seem a bit off considering what’s going on???
Let me know your thoughts in the comments below… Oh and keep it #bougie 😉
