East London Grime MC, Lethal Bizzle has scored another Top 20 hit, with his latest single ‘Rari Work Out Ft. JME and Tempa T’, which entered this weeks (w/c August 31) UK singles chart at No. #11.
Originally scheduled for release some time in June, the track was pushed back to allow more time for promotion, giving Lethal the opportunity to maximise his social media campaign, do the interview rounds (catch his interview with Tim Westood here), and get two videos done for ‘Rari Work Out Ft. JME and Tempa T’, one animated, and the official one.
Released on Sunday August 24, the single immediately began to make a mark on the iTunes Top songs chart hitting No. #7 by Monday. It was always going to be a bit of a struggle to maintain that position throughout the week, and although JME, & Tempa pitched in with the promotion online, and Lethal Bizzle even embarked on his first online Q & A session #AskBizzle to get the momentum going, but unfortunately it wasn’t enough to secure a top ten hit, which it probably deserved.
Although ‘Rari Work Out Ft. JME and Tempa T’, never made it into the top ten, it managed to equal the chart position of Lethal Bizzle‘s naughties anthem ‘Pow! Forward’, and surpassed the chart position of arguably the biggest tune of the year, Meridian Dan – ‘German Whip Ft. Big H & JME’, which charted at No. #13 in April, making it the highest charting single from a Grime MC this year.
Lethal Bizzle we salute you!
