Without a doubt London Grime MC, Meridian Dan, has the biggest tune in the BritHop. The promotion for this single now signed to PMR records is relentless, and the track has just being going from strength-to-strength.
While out and about the BritHopTV team spotted the ‘ #GermanWhip’ posters around south London. They were taken back, as it’s been while since they’ve seen a big campaign for a BritHop track like this in a long a while, so they had take some pictures.
We liked the fact that there were a few a different versions, and colours, using some of the popular lyrics from the track.
It’s good to see the label giving it decent push, and not just riding off the momentum that the track. Coupled with the promotional activity that Meridian Dan has been engaged in, we think that this has definitely one of the best campaigns, that we’ve seen in a long while, and we truly believe that if the scene gets behind this track, and by that we mean fans taken their money out their pockets and buy the single, it can go number one in the UK in the charts.
We’ve have been following the ascent of ‘#GermanWhip’ for a while, and have reported on the original video reaching one million, and two million views on youtube, Tinie Tempah bringing Meridian Dan out on stage to perform ‘#GermanWhip’ at the O2 arena, Meridian Dan getting a Vevo account for the Official video, the all star ‘#GermanWhip’ remix featuring Skepta, Professor Green, Bossman Birdie, and Rizzle Kicks, as well as Meridian Dan interviews and other footage.
