Lethal Bizzle’s 2011 version of his classic anthem,’Pow! (Forward)‘ has hit seven million views on YouTube, and at the time of writing this article, as can be seen above had hit 7004,924 views. Uploaded to YouTube on December 24, 2010, the Carly Cussen directed-video has racked up this number of views in just over three years.
The track is an updated version of the original posse cut released in December 2004, ‘Pow 2011’ was produced by Teddy who gave the new version his own little twist, and features some of the top MCs in Grime; JME, Wiley, Chipmunk, Face, P-Money, Ghetts, and Kano.
Officially released February 6, 2011, the second coming of ‘Pow! Forward’ managed to peak at No. #33 in the UK Single charts, not quite achieving the success of its predecessor which went to no.#11 on January 2005.
December 20, 2014 will be the 10th anniversary of the release of the original ‘Pow! Forward’, and up to this moment there hasn’t been a Grime track to surpass it, although it’s possible that Meridian Dan’s, ‘German Whip’ may be the one to do it.
So will there be a ‘Pow 2015′ to mark the 10 year anniversary’? I guess we will just have to wait and see.
