The UK really does seem to be on the come up on the R&B front. Eurovision hopeful and Geffen Records artist Jade Ewen premiered the debut single ‘My Man’ from her forthcoming as-yet-titled album on Trevor Nelson’s BBC 1Xtra show. A very US-friendly club banger, I was pleasantly surprised hearing this, as I expected everything other than an uptempo cut in this vein as her lead single. While bordering on ‘heard it all before’ territory, the song definitely goes hard, with it’s thumping production, catchy hooks, and Jade’s powerful vocal delivery. With Ms. Ewen being quite the competent performer (as evidenced on the BBC’s Your Country Needs You” ), I’m anticipating the single’s video and live performance. Good stuff.
