A song with a strange melody about a song with a strange melody.
How meta and, at the same time, how amazing.
One of the things we like about MNEK is that his first big single for Virgin, released earlier this year, came with artwork that had a person on it.
If you look through the current Top 40 singles a lot of the releases at the housier end of the pop spectrum are borderline anonymous, yet here's MNEK going "YES THANKS I'M A POPSTAR".
Mind you, you can hear as much in the tune (which just premiered on Annie Mac's Radio 1 show), right? Ambition, talent, a refreshing songwriting sensibility and a working knowledge of dance music that sounds like pop music as well as pop music that sounds like dance music.
There aren't many artists you can say that about.
