SFPL’s Artist Spotlight: From The UK To ATL, Angel Debuts New Visual “Fvxk With You” feat. Rich Homie Quan, EP ‘HER’ Out Now!

Today on our ‘Artist Spotlight,’ rising UK R&B singer/songwriter Angel recently released his debut EP Her. To support the special project, the talented artist also premiered the visual for “Fvxk With You” featuring Rich Homie Quan, which is the official single.

In the video, Angel makes his way over to the southern streets of ATL as he and Quan link up for a local block party.

Check it out above. ‘

The EP is a pre-cursor to a debut album due next year on Motown/Capitol in the US. He’s worked with the likes of Swizz Beatz (who is a mentor of his), Ed Sheeran, Jeremih, Jason Derulo, Dizzee Rascal, Stormzy, and more, and has recently been in the studio with the likes of Kehlani, Prince Charlez (worked on Rihanna’s Anti), and Pop and Oak (Nicki Minaj).

He’s also penned songs for UK staples like Pixie Lott and Cheryl Cole (of Girls Aloud), and wrote the UK #1 single, “Green Light” by grime music collective Roll Deep. Angel got his start singing at home, growing up in West London. His father is Tenadi Charles, a popular figure in the UK reggae scene, who’s played with Bob Marley, Dennis Brown, Kaya and more.

Angel (real name Sirach Charles) formed a band with his siblings growing up, The Charles Family and ended up touring across the UK, before starting to make a name for himself in the studio. He released his solo debut single in 2012, which reached the top 10 of the UK charts. Already a festival mainstay in Europe, with ‘HER’ and his upcoming debut, he is shaping up to become a household name across both sides of the atlantic.

SFPL Music: Tory Lanez Drops Two New Mixtapes: ‘Chixtape 3’ & ‘The New Toronto’

tory-lanez-chixtape-toronto

On the heels of Christmas Day and new music steadily coming out of the woodworks, buzzing artist Tory Lanez drops not one but two mixtapes for your gifting pleasure.

Today, he releases Part 3 of his series Chixtape paired with The New Toronto hosted by DJ Drama and executive produced by Play Picasso.

Lanez keeps the throwback sampling spirit going on the ‘Chixtape’ portion, as he includes past hit songs along with his current tracks like: Juvenile‘s “Slow Motion”, Alicia Keys‘ “You Don’t Know My Name”, Destiny’s Child “Say My Name”, Usher‘s “You Got It Bad” which he re-titled “You Got It Worse”, Jagged Edge‘s “Walked Outta Heaven” and more.

On the title-cut “Save It”, Tory adds Ed Sheeran‘s cover of his Brownstone-inspired single “Say It” as he flips the song-title yet again. The samples on this project are pretty genius, adding such smooth transitions throughout the course of the entire project.

Moving over to ‘The New Toronto’, the talented artist intros us into his BARS session with “Makaveli”, as he declares his state of remembrance through the solidified name of the late Tupac. Next up, Tory carries over into the song-cut “The New Toronto” claiming his new status while repping his city to the fullest. The song speaks on old & new haters, his consistent moves to make it to the top, and new money.

Other standout tracks include: “Other Side”, “One Day”, “Round Here” feat. Brittney Taylor, “Kids From The West”, and “Lord Knows Pt. 2”.

Collectively, TL just delivered one of the best mixtapes of the year, ending 2015 off with a bang.
