‘Prince of Grime’, Tinchy Stryder returns with ‘Allow Me’ featuring JME, the first track to be lifted from his forthcoming, fourth studio album ‘360º/The Cloud 9‘ LP.
Released as an instant grat and available for streaming across all platforms, ‘Allow Me’ received its first spin on Charlie Sloth’s Radio 1Xtra show yesterday. Featuring JME, the track is produced by Davinche, who initially collaborated with Tinchy on his formidable debut album ‘Star In The Hood’ and produced Kano’s grime classic ‘Ps & Qs’.
“‘Allow Me’ came about cos at the time, I felt like a lot of people were always being so personal, asking me questions and getting into my business as if they knew me that well, when they really didn’t.” says Tinchy of the track. “Also the feeling of people wondering why I hadn’t released any new music and suggestions of what I should do next or not do, what I should have or shouldn’t have done. I found myself thinking ‘leave me alone, drop me out of your gossip and give me my space’ really a lot of the time lol… So obviously I had to give my bruvas Davinche and JME a call and drop a banger on them!”
Shot in Croydon, the video for ‘Allow Me’ is directed by upcoming South London duo, Dman and Capes, who have been hand-picked by Tinchy to creatively direct all the videos from his forthcoming album.
Due for the release in April, ‘360º / The Cloud 9 LP’ stars a slew of big name collaborators, featuring guest appearances from the likes of Jme, D Double E and Giggs, and production from Davinche, Rapid, Dirty Danger, Sir Spyro, Show’N’Prove, Pinky & The Brain and Rymez.
Tinchy Stryder’s ‘Allow Me’ featuring JME will be released as an album instant grat via Cloud 9 Records on Friday March 4th.
