After the success of his summer hit ‘Leyla’ featuring afrobeat sensation Fuse ODG, unapologetically R&B singer Angel is set to be the talk of the town again with his trail-blazing track ‘Rudeboy’ featuring WSTRN band member Haile.
Over an airy beat accompanied by subtle 808’s providing just enough bass to get your heads bopping, West London native Angel reminds us all that despite his mesmerising voice and charming looks, he is very much still a ‘rudeboy from the corner’ and we better not forget it. With Haile lending his vocals on the track, the pair are a perfect musical match with their top- tier delivery, making it an instant club banger.
Signed by Motown Records VP, Ezekiel Lewis (also responsible for forming the group ‘The Clutch’ who have gone on to write and produce hits for Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, Ne-Yo and more) Angel reinforces his position as one of the UK’s most successful R&B singers of our time. With Pop & Oak (known for their work with the likes of Chris Brown, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj) and Grammy award winning producer Swizz Beatz and Neff-U on the list as just some of the credible names Angel has recently worked with, there is no doubt that his debut album is going to rock both sides of the shores, making 2016 his for the taking.
“Putting this remix together was really organic, Tally was there when I made the original song, Wretch hit me up about getting on the song when I put a clip up on Instagram sometime last year and JME was showing mad love for the original on Twitter so I reached out to him about getting involved. All good vibes and good people” – Angel
