RAY BLK WINNER OF BBC MUSIC SOUND 2017
Congratulations to Ray Blk. We all know how much I like her music and Ray for me personally brings something thats missing for UK R&B/ Soul. I really hope that the team around her truly look after and have her best interest beyond music.

ED SHEERAN IS BACK
Ed Sheeran announced at the beginning of the week that he has new music coming out Friday 6th January 2017. Castle On The Hill is the 2nd song off the album with a rock/pop sound. Ed describes “Castle On Hill” as the love letter to the UK town Suffolk.
Shape of you is the “Urban” track that almost sounds dancehall influenced with sexy lyrics. Ed mentions that he wrote this song for Rihanna and then realised that it wouldn’t of worked for her. The lyrics took me by surprise if im honest as I could not imagine Ed writing lyrics like
“Girl you know I want your love
Your love was handmade for somebody like me
Come on now follow my lead
I may be crazy don’t mind me
Say boy let’s not talk too much
Grab on my waist and put that body on me
Come on now follow my lead
Come come on now follow my lead”
How raunchy and different for Ed, as he says that this track was random and last-minute.
