WATCH: Akheim Allen-“Memo”

Published

on

Following his critically-acclaimed recent release ‘WAVS DNT DIE’, London rapper Akheim Allen drops a second heavyweight jam with ‘MEMO’.

Continuing to define himself as one of the brightest emerging new UK rap talents, another innovative, glitchy instrumental serves as a jumpy foundation for Akheim’s hard, skilful lyrical content that continues to mix clout with consciousness and wider wokeness.

Speaking on the track, Akheim states: “It’s a reminder to let people know, who I am and where I’ve come from – it’s not just about where I’m currently at but where I’m heading to. Memo consists of what I like to call ‘aspirational ignorance’ – letting people know even without materialistic things you can still be the best you, none of it defines you.”

Another taste of what’s to be expected sonically from his upcoming EP, ‘MEMO’ continues to impress, with the pinball-esque production as much as Akheim’s clear ease of flow and careful wordplay.

Working already with the likes of Dave East, Avelino and Dreamville’s Ari Lennox, as well as writing with Kojey Radical and Maleek Berry, Akheim is rolling with some of the brightest emerging artists right now and deservedly so: this second instalment will serve as a reminder of the kind of innovative talent Akheim possesses, and points of an exciting new body of work.

‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Semi-Finalist Jamie Lee Harrison Releases ‘Powerful’ Single

Published

By

Fast-rising British singer, songwriter and musician JAMIE LEE HARRISON is back with his brand new single titled ‘Powerful’, which is the first taste of a new selection of music from the 24-year old Newcastle-born musician, more of which will be released in 2019. The new single comes on the back of Jamie Lee Harrison’s recent UK tour earlier in the year, and his main stage performance in front of 20,000 people, at this summer’s Newcastle Pride, alongside Alexandra Burke.

You might remember Jamie Lee Harrison from last year’s Britain’s Got Talent, where he captured the nation with his rendition of R.E.M’s ‘Everybody Hurts’, which has now been viewed over 2 million times on YouTube. He went on to the semifinals of that show, but Jamie’s passion for music was evident long before that, and has always been his lifeblood, the singer, songwriter and musician has over 1500 gigs around the world, under his belt, and reached number eight in the official UK independent singles chart with his debut single ‘When We Meet’.

His new single ‘Powerful’ opens up as a strong slow building piano-led ballad, backed by lush string arrangements, before exploding into an infectious guitar and piano-heavy pop soul offering, over which Jamie Lee Harrison delivers a strong and impassioned rallying call for listeners to unlock their inner strengths, overcome their fears and break through boundaries. The song is brought to life and held together excellently, by Jamie’s powerful vocal showing, purposeful songwriting, and heartfelt performance.

Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘Powerful’, Jamie Lee Harrison says, “I wrote the song about overcoming my own personal fears and breaking through boundaries; battling the lack of self-belief that has held me back. I believe that every single person has a fire inside them, a passion and drive to fulfil. Some of us need help to ignite it. The message is that each individual is powerful in their own way. We can take control of that power, whether it’s gaining the courage to achieve our goals or just being comfortable in our own skin”.
