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. I love Gorgon City’s version but I’m a sucker for stripped back vocals so I know which version I prefer…
…Introducing to you, #MyNewFavouriteThing 🙂
I have to thank @Bimadew for this one; there I was this morning minding my business, in the Twittersphere, just chilling, browsing, seeing what my timeline had for me when she tweeted this little gem into it:
And all at once I fell in love. The words, the music, the video, the way the singer’s love interest looks at her from 1:57 – 2:00 (yes it’s that deep) I love it all….
*sings* “If it wasn’t for you I’d be on my own” *lovehearts*
You all can thank me later.
