It’s the first #FlashbackFriday for December and as party season is upon us with companies treating their staff to a night of fun over the Christmas season, its only right that kick start the fun with Flo Rida’s 2007 anthem ‘Low’ taken from the Step Up 2 soundtrack.
People often forget that ‘Low’ was Flo Rida’s debut single which was destined to be a huge hit thanks to collaborating with the award winning T-Pain who had helped the likes of Jamie Foxx, Chris Brown and Lil Mama to dominate dance floors and the rapper from Florida, USA was next in line for success.
Low was produced by not only T-Pain but also DJ Montay who is Grammy nominated for having worked with Akon, Ne-Yo plus contributing to movies ‘Step UP 3D’, ‘Stomp Up The Yard’, and Eddie Murphies ‘Norbit’. Upon first hearing T-Pain singing the infamous chorus many believed it was actually his song until they realized he was only featured with Flo Rida dominating the lead vocals.
However it really is the chorus that sells the songs “Shawty had them Apple Bottom Jeans (jeans), Boots with the fur (with the fur), The whole club was lookin' at her, She hit the floor (she hit the floor), Next thing you know, Shawty got low low low low low low low low”. The mention of Apple Bottom jeans helped enhance the sales of the denim brand to which fellow rapper Nelly was part owner and very thankful for all the extra attention.
Other fashion brands that enjoyed getting a shout out by T-Pain was Reebok who also saw a surge in sails thanks to the club anthem that had everyone dancing throughout the end of 2007 and continuing through to 2008 with ladies and gents getting ‘low low low low low low low low low’. The video features Flo Rida partying hard in a club with the usual trimmings of beautiful women and hungry fellas getting their groove on across R&B clubs in London city.
Low went on to receive MTV nominations for Best Male Video, and Best Hip Hop video, however lost out to Lil Wayne’s Lollipop’, but that didn’t stop the song from holding the no.1 spot on the Billboard hot 100 for a whopping 10 weeks selling over 10million copies worldwide with x8 platinum in the USA, platinum in the UK, Switzerland, Australia, Canada plus Gold in Denmark, and Germany.
The Christmas countdown has begun, with less than 4weeks till the big day, so this is our final #MondayMotivation for November and today we are getting frisky with the electronic hit by Neiked “Sexual”.
To many chart observers it feels as if both the song and artist have just dropped out of the sky as never before has we heard of the act Neiked, however the Swedish producer is no stranger to the music scene in that part of Europe having released a couple of singles over there in the past, but it seems as if ‘Sexual’ is his most successful creation which is dominating charts and DJ playlists worldwide.
Sexual is laid back dance-pop track that almost has a soulful edge thanks to the featured English vocalist Dyo who is like a breathe of fresh air she seductively builds the song up in the verses singing about finding that special someone you’ve searching for who has ‘that thing’ along with a heart full of gold. The pre chorus gets stuck in your head as the song continues to build ‘you are you are, you are, you are, you are, everything that I dreamed of, now we can paint a picture, you are, you are, you are, you are, you are, making my life much greener”.
At this moment the full backing track kicks in with that smooth groove complimenting the chorus ‘just say you feel the way that I feel, I’m feeling sexual, we should be sexual”, those simple words are very effective which is exactly why the song has been climbing up the UK Charts top 10, and in heavy rotation on commercial radio. Neiked originally released the song in Sweden over the summer with a Facebook message to fans “I hereby wish everyone a happy sexual summer” in June 2016.
Sexual generated over 2million streams within it’s first month which lead to interest across Europe, now the song is in the top 10 of charts in Australia, Ireland, Scotland, to name only a few with 35,000 Scottish sales cementing as Gold, and over 200,000 in the UK achieving silver certification.
It looks like big things will be happening for the producer Neiked now his name is lighting up charts, plus the singer Dyo formerly known as Ms D can expect to be even more in demand having previously sung on tracks for Chipmunk, Iggy Azalea, and Wiley, so watch this space and expect to hear ‘Sexual’ across the festive season at all those Christmas office and New Years Eve parties in London town too..
It’s the final #FlashbackFriday of November and once again we are jumping in our time machine to pay homage to Trey Songz 2009 party anthem ‘Say Aah’.
Trey wanted to make a song that helps the ladies to celebrate their birthdays, and he truly achieved his mission with ladies and gents raising their glasses in the clubs saying ‘Aah’ partying and feeling good because it’s their birthday.
Trigga called upon the talents of his good friend Fabolous to spit a dope verse over the track produced by Don Corell, Young Yonny, and Troy Taylor all of whom have produced for the likes of B2K, Tyrese, and many more. ‘Say Ash’ is mid tempo party banger which reflects the sound of R&B during the period of 2009 and 2010 when songs by Jamie Foxx ‘Blame It’ were dominating the charts.
As soon ‘Say Aah’ gets played and Trey Songz can be heard talking saying ‘aye when I give you these keys homeboy, don’t move my car man, I ride in the front ya dig, don’t move my sh*t man, oh! Oh baby what’s your name’. Instantly the whole club can be heard singing ‘Go girl it’s your birthday, Open wide I know your thirsty Say aah (say aah) we don’t buy no drinks at the bar, we pop champagne cause we got that dough let me hear you say aah (say aah).
Say Aah video features both Trey and Fabolous having fun in a party with beautiful ladies and homeboys dancing like at London Groove R&B Parties in the city. Party people love this song and the video is perfect to get you warmed up with over 40million views on YouTube. Say Aah was nominated for ‘Viewers Choice’ award and ‘Best Collaboration at the 2010 BET Awards.
Taken from his 3rd studio album ‘Ready’ 2009, Say Aah was the last single released from the album and became one of the biggest club anthems of 2010 with every DJ spinning the single, along with radio and club domination. Trey Songz achieved chart positions across the globe with top 10 status on the US Billboard top 100, top 40 in Canada, top 20 in Belgium plus over 2,000,000 sales in the USA achieving double platinum status.
Say Aah will continue to be played across RnB clubs in London town with birthday people across the clubs singing ‘Aah’!
It's #ThrowbackThursday and today we are jumping in our time machine and transporting ourselves back to the year of 1994 when TLC released their smooth R&B anthem ‘Creep’ played across London Groove parties.
Taken from their award winning second album ‘CrazySexyCool’ and created by their long-term producer Dallas Austin, together they gave Atlanta even more music to be proud of. Dallas Austin had made a huge name for himself thanks to his work with TLC and having worked with everyone from Pink, Monica, Gwen Stefani, Boyz II Men, Janet Jackson, Kelis, Madonna to name only a few.
Dallas decided to sample from Slick Rick’s ‘Hey Young World’ and wrote the ladies a song from their perspective about cheating and keeping things on the downlow when things aren’t going so well with her man. Rather than allowing both T-Boz and Chilli to share vocals, the lead throughout the song is performed by T-Boz showcasing her unique low tone.
The video features the ladies wearing their trademark silk pajamas and was the best result after failed attempts of two other versions however finally Lionel C Martin got the job done and the ladies were happy. Creep won a Grammy for best R&B performance along with Billboard awards and many more.
We can’t seem to go anywhere without people being obsessed with doing the #MannequinChallenge in workplaces, family gatherings, and across London parties and clubland, so we had to salute the No.1 song in America responsible for this viral craze: ‘Black Beatles’ by the hit making rap duo Rae Sremmurd feat Gucci Mane who is enjoying chart success again.
Taken from their second album SremmLife 2 the lads called upon the talents of Mike Will Made It, which unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock, then you would’ve heard many of his club bangers from ‘Pour It Up’ by Rihanna, ‘Formation’ by Beyonce, ‘Mercy’ by Kanye and far too many to mention.
This trap infused single finds the lads rapping ‘that girl is a real crowd pleaser, small world, all her friends know of me, young bull living like an old geezer, quick release the cash, watch it fall slowly, they lose it when the DJ drops the needle’. Its crazy to amazing these young lads bragging about having the fame of the 60s group ‘I’m a fcuking Black Beatle, cream seats in the Regal, rockin John Lennon lenses like to see ‘em spead eagle’.
Black Beatle in no way is song about Mannequin’s but yet it has become the song of choice to create the viral challenge which involves filming a crowd of people standing frozen where ever they are holding a variety of poses whilst the cameraman or woman captures different angles of the mannequins. This craze has now pushed Rae Sremmurd’s song to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 and its climbing up the UK charts top 5 with similar chart positions in Sweden, Norway New Zealand, Canada, Australia to name only a few.
The video directed by the Motion Family sees Rae Sremmurd living life in the fast lane of being rock stars, performing on stage and on a roof, playing guitars, shaking their dreads, rehearsing at home with a house full of groupies, and friends and generally being international superstars, cruising the streets and causing mayhem where they go. So far it’s generated almost 100 million views on YouTube with people flocking to view it due to the Mannequin Challenge viral craze.
You can be sure to hear ‘Black Beatles’ across London Groove R&B parties in the city and more than likely we will be doing our very own Mannequin Challenge so watch this space!
