Despite his debut single not getting the chart recognition is truly deserved, Talay Riley (read about how amazing he is here) is following up his fantastic debut single ‘Humanoid’ with the equally epic ‘Sergeant Smash’.
Not too dissimilar from the likes of Usher, ‘Sergeant Smash’ is a drum-heavy urban banger that is so brilliant it’s been added to the BBC Radio 1xtra playlist an awesome 12 weeks up front. Released in the UK on 31st January through Jive Records, the track is a fresh, sexy and addictive TUNE with a smooth catchy chorus and sick urban pop beats, not a lot different from the Justin Timberlake and Timbaland style production sound.
Talay’s debut album will be released in 2011 and he is currently working in the studio in the UK and LA with a host of producers including Inflo 1st (One Republic), Harmony aka H-Money (a member of Darkchild Productions in LA responsible for Lady Gaga’s ‘Telephone’ amongst others) and Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins himself (easily one of our favourite producers here at Popseeker).
You can really see the talent of this incredible singer with the acoustic version he’s done here:
