At long last we have a hip hop/R&B track that isn’t churning out the same old recycled lyrics about ‘making love in da clubs’. D-Boy’s laid back new solo single ‘Loveless’ narrates a story about forbidden love, the struggles and racism that two people in love from different cultures can face. The smooth single features So Solid/Reelist R&B singer Sef and UK rapper A G Dolla and de livers a slice of the UK’s finest on top form.
The single is taken from D-Boy’s album ‘Playback’ and is the second single to be released. Since releasing the first single ‘Nach Ke [Bhangra Bounce] featuring Swiss & VdublE, D-Boy has done a BBC Introducing session and has found champions on Radio 1, Kiss, Asian Network to name a few.
‘'D-boy never lets me down, from underground street bangers to dance floor anthems, he’s always on point. I can’t wait to drop his productions in my set’’ DJ NIHAL [Radio 1]
D-Boy [aka Daniel Naqui] has already notched up hits and produced for The Reelists, won the British Academy of Songwriters and Composers ‘Overall Best Song’ in 2005 and second place for best song with the Songwriters Academy. D-Boy was also behind the development of artist Bruce Boniface who is now signed to Sony and who recently penned ‘Lie About Us’ for Avant featuring Nicole Scherzinger.
Earlier this year, he produced ‘Look 4 Me’ for British female artist Hard Kaur. The single has gone on to become anthemic in India and remained in the top 5 position in the Indian charts for 8 weeks.
The new album ‘Playback’, features experimental tabla meets grime, classical meets electro tracks featuring Baby Blue, Pyrelli, Selah, Sharifa Shi, Des-C and more.
