WES NELSON RELEASES NEW SINGLE  “NICE TO MEET YA” F.T YXNG BANE

Published

on

Following his massive breakthrough debut single last year, Wes Nelson returns with another monster hitthe hugely anticipated follow up, Nice To Meet Ya featuring rap star, Yxng Bane.

With its moody blend of Afrobeatssmooth R&B production and Wes’ infectious melodies, Nice To Meet Ya feels like an instant classicconfident, effortless and ridiculously catchy. Written by Wes and produced once again by rising beatmaker, Ayo Beatz (Fredo, Young M.A.), the track delivers on Wes’s promise both as a talented songwriter and vocalist. Featuring Yxng Bane, the East London star had written and recorded his parts within a day of hearing the track.

Wes says“I wanted people to sing Nice To Meet Ya and just feel good about themselves, like 3 minutes of escapism! Especially with lockdowns we’re all feeling a bit trapped and people are down, I just want people to get up and feel good.”

One of 2020’s biggest singles, ‘See Nobody’ was written and produced during lockdown from Wes’ makeshift bedroom studio.  A Gold-certified hit in the UK and double Platinum in Ireland, the top 3 debut single has accumulated over 70 million streams globallywith over 38 million streams on Spotify and over 13 million video viewsIt also became an instant favourite amongst cultural commentators, musicians and attracted notable fans such as the likes of Anthony Joshua, Idris Elba, Stevo The Madman, Chip, Krept & Konan, Jay1, S1mba, Jae5, SL and many more.

A former undefeated champion Muay Thai kickboxer, semi-professional footballer and Nuclear System Design Engineermusic has always been Wes’ first love and his greatest ambition. After being gifted with a red plastic karaoke machine aged 3, he would perform to his family every Friday night and sing along to the Top Of The Pops’ hits of the day. As he grew into his teen years, he lacked the confidence to be open about his passion for music and instead focused on other interests. Last year, quarantine became an opportunity for Wes to return to his artistic craving: while others baked banana bread and binge-watched Selling Sunset, he took the discipline he learnt from Muay Thai and applied it to music. 

With his focus now fully on music who knows where the next chapter could lead. He has the desire – and potential to be one of the UKs most successful R&B/Pop artistsWes not only has the talent, but the focus, drive and discipline that such ambition takes,

I know its not going to happen overnight, but consistency is key. The best artists are the ones who stay true to themselves; authenticity is everything to me and thats what will take me all the way.

As the summer draws to a close, East London’s break-through act TiZ EAST is determined to end it on a bang; calling on the likes of BOJ and hit-maker Donae’O, they’ve created the ultimate wheel-up worthy riddim!

Knocking those fall blues away, ‘Hello’ encapsulates his African roots with no trouble. Welcomed with an energized and percussive production courtesy of Bayoz Muzik, who also lends his vocals to the hook, TiZ EAST bursts through with his hard-hitting verse. Continuing to boast his versatility and authentic flare, he uses this release to display his money-making schemes, and fun-filled spirit.

The assisting verses from both BOJ and Donae’O play into the strength of the track as their passion, fire, and spirit collide in one vibrant delivery. Infusing elements of Amapiano and Trap in one sound, ‘Hello’ is a swift trip from London to Lagos! The collaborative single ‘Hello’ is paired with a set of Suave-directed visuals which follow TiZ as he whips around his ends in London; from his barber shop to a small link up filled with dancers, good food and energy, we are taken on a motive to remember! Speaking on the single TiZ EAST commented, “This track is a special one for me and we’re about to have it lit from London to Lagos, The Only Way Is Up!”. Being released via Donae’O’ label ‘Movin Anti’, this further solidifies TiZ EAST’s growth as he climbs further up the ranks.

Adding to his already-successful year with gained recognition from global tastemakers (Complex, Audiomack, BBC Radio 1, Capital XTRA, etc), the Nigeria-born and Newham residing force proves his potential to become a staple name. Housing a varied catalogue going back as far as 2018, from ‘Unsigned’, ‘One Dollar’, and ‘Trappy’ – not to mention the ‘Bad Habits (Remix)’ alongside Moelogo and Nadia Rose, TiZ EAST is a name to remember.

Tellaman Releases A Brand New Love Ballad, Titled Love Again

Published

on

By

Since the successful debut of God Decides, Tellaman has experienced musical milestones, collaborated with artists around the world, and featured on the highly anticipated Coming 2 America soundtrack. Following the success of “Overdue” featuring Sha Sha and Oxlade, as well as the release of his first solo single of the year, “Superstar”, Tellaman presents a new solo single, “Love Again”.

With the year drawing to a close, most of us are reflecting on the good, bad, and ugly, Tellaman muses over relationships where one partner has yet to get over their ex. Drawing instrumental inspiration from Chris Brown’s “Back To Sleep”, Tellaman lulls audiences into his mind’s working, where he questions a lover’s inability to reciprocate love. The good book suggests, “Love is patient, love is kind”. At the same time, while there may be love, and it may be patient and kind, the love in a relationship must be mutual.

“Love Again” embodies the age-old adage of “Once burned, twice shy” as it relates to a lover who was once disillusioned in love and subsequently questions the validity of any other love to come. “How you gon’ win if you don’t take a chance on love”, Tellaman questions. Granted, he’s clear in noting that while he may not be perfect, he acknowledges the fallibility of his human nature. At the same time, to be asked to make up for heart pains he didn’t cause isn’t exactly a relationship that can be sustained.

In the voice that made him a beloved of South Africa, Tellaman begs the question, even after love gone wrong, can one experience love again?
