The latest release from Ayo Beatz is his most melodic offering to date—and so damn clever that it is poised to propel the Hackney, London-based producer, rapper & songwriter to critical mass, at last. Offering a clever mélange of samples, a keen chorus and Ayo’s flow, the song immediately raises eyebrows with its unexpected opening operatic snippet of “Alleluia” from Russian soprano Julia Lezhneva. From there, the boyz take over, with a sing-along chorus and Ayo’s rapid-fire rap rhymes. This track is poised for the dancefloor, the airwaves—and the highway, with windows rolled down and volume turned up to 10. Bulls-eye, baby!
