Expected the unexpected, when the unlikely trio of feather-voiced Nu Soul chanteuse Jhene Aiko, British boy-band Rixton and vocal powerhouse Jessie J join forces for a brand new single.
‘Sorry To Interrupt‘ – the trio’s just-released new effort – is an original song for Kellogg’s Pop-Tart’s ‘Crazy Good Summer’ campaign, and this one’s a smooth and sassy R’n’B/Pop jam that’s bound to get you grooving!
Produced by DJ Mustard, who seems to have the Midas touch when it comes to creating bona fide summer smashes, the song unexpectedly does not sound odd at all! The vocals are on point – it’s rather amazing how Jessie’s stellar pipes harmonize so well with Jhene’s laid back and haunting vocals. Rixton’s Jake Roche oozes enough soul on his own verse to stand his ground, while blending in seamlessly with the ladies on the insanely addictive chorus (the ‘Louder (uuh), Louder (uhh)‘ part gets me flailing violently)!
As unusual as the combination is – they have a winner at hand. And possibly a repeat of Miss J’s success last year when she teamed up with Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj for the global smash ‘Bang Bang‘.
