Full-timer perfumer and semi-retired popstar Tulisa is back — her new single is called 'Sweet Like Chocolate', yes it's a cover of Shanks & Bigfoot's banger for the ages, and it will be out on September 2, ie this Friday.
According to a press release, the song — which also features Akelle from WSTRNF — fuses pop, hip hop and garage and, addressing the cover issue, the song "reinvigorates Shanks & Bigfoot’s 2000 hit chorus of the same name".
'Reinvigorates' is a good way of putting it, isn't it.
There's a trailer thing for the song and video on the www right now.
Here it is in fact:
Obviously — OBVIOUSLY! — there's a quote for the press release too:
"I’ve taken the chorus of an old school classic and written around it. It’s one of the most loved tracks of the 90s, and one of my favourite songs as a child. It was amazing to remake and rewrite a song like 'Sweet Like Chocolate', it feels like a good way to come back."
So there we are. Welcome back Tulisa.
