For their latest offering, the quartet put a modern stamp on 90s-style after hours R&B, accompanied with a seamless soulful bass, which will undoubtedly strengthen their reputation as one of the most exciting R&B groups from the UK.
‘I Need You’ follows their 2017 R&B/Afrobeat fused single, ‘Simmer Down’ which received support from the likes of R&B Magazine, BRASH! Magazine and New Wave District. The music video for the ‘Simmer Down’ clocked up over 20,000 views, premiered via The Link Up TV.
Since appearing on Britain’s Got Talent in 2015 – where Simon Cowell said they have ‘great potential’ – Sakyi 4 have caught the attention of SBTV founder Jamal Edwards with track ‘Bad As You’ and featured the music video on his platform. To date, the music video for ‘Bad As You’ has generated over 36,000 views.
Exposed to various styles of music from a young age, the North West Londoners turned their hand to song writing, citing Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson as strong influences. With smooth and weak-at-the-knees lyrics featured in ‘I Need You’, these guys are definitely on their way to possess the lyrical standard plus vocal delivery of nineties/noughties R&B favourites Joe, Ne Yo and Chris Brown.
‘I Need You’ is available on all major digital/streaming platforms – including Spotify andiTunes – today (18th October) from 6pm GMT
