Music Review: Mary J Blige – Right Now

mary-j-blige-right-nowMary J Blige the Queen of Hip Hop Soul is on a mission to spread her love of London City around the world as she dedicates an entire album to the home of Buckingham Palace and Notting Hill Carnival.

The London Sessions by Mary J Blige looks set to put the singer back on the music map in genre defying style as her soon to be released single ‘Right Now’ captures the new wave of electronic dance music surging through the charts courtesy of producers Disclosure.

Mary J Blige has caught house fever, and this laidback beat thumping number displays Disclosure’s signature sound that has been sweeping London Groove Soul Saturdays parties. Right Now is not only written by Disclosure but also Sam Smith, and Jimmy Napes, as they tell the classic tale of a woman finding the strength to walk away from a man that’s been doing her wrong.

Lyrics include: ‘I’m telling you right now, no I wont play this game with you, im taking it back now, im turning it right around my love wont be the same for you no more.’ Vocally Mary sings with a more subdued style in the theme of a woman scorned creating a very classy R&B performance over this chilled out synth filled groove.

Right Now wont be filling any big room raves not without a few remixes however this mellow but funky dance track will get you head nodding and wet your appetite to hear what else Mary’s dream team of Emile Sande, Naughty Boy, Sam Smith and Disclosure have in store on the London Sessions.

Music Review: Kid Ink – Body Language Ft. Usher & Tinashe

kid-ink-body-languageKid Ink returns to the clubs with his follow up to the massive club anthem ‘Show Me’, which is still dominating dance floors and charts worldwide.

The 28-year old rapper has stayed in the charts thanks to being featured on the no.1 selling Chris Brown single ‘Loyal’ which is still one of the hottest London Groove party anthems played at The Anthologist every weekend.. Now the tattoo loving Kid Ink is back with his new single: ‘Body Language’ featuring the legendary Usher and new artist Tinashe.

Body Language is produced by the up and coming DJ Cashmere Cat whose credits currently include Charli XCX, Wiz Khalifa, Jeremih, and the award winning Arianda Grande. He’s known for his genre bending use of electronic xylophones, bass heavy beats and quirky melodies which Kid ink rhymes over with effortless finesse.

Usher’s vocals are perfect for ‘Body Language’ as he sings about his love interest speaking volumes with her physique. The song was premiered on September 9th and has generated over 20,000 listens via the YouTube audio video, you can expect another high quality video, which will hopefully include both Usher and newcomer Tinashe.

Kid Ink will certainly be rocking parties and clubs with the catchy chorus ‘can we talk about it, you can ain’t gotta say too much, I can read your body language’, which is perfect for the current climate of R&B, so expect to hear this mid-tempo club banger across radio’s everywhere and watch out for the video coming soon.
