WSTRN & Fireboy DML Releases “Be My Guest”

Published

on

The three piece act continue their distinctive streak of smooth releases with a new rhythmic jam, produced by PRGRSHN, which moves with groove tendencies. Effortlessly showcasing their distinctively unique sound, the catchy bounce of the strings laced with the infectious baseline, seamlessly matched with Louis Rei and Akelle’s charm alongside Haile’s melodic vocals on the chorus, gifts us with the Summer banger,  “Be My Guest”. This hot new single is set to be a hit very much in time to welcome in carnival weekend, with an appearance from Lagos’s very own Fireboy DML making the diasporic connection with a hot  guest verse. 

Speaking on the inspiration behind “Be My Guest” WSTRN says: “ It’s a  feel good release for supporters to raise there vibrations before carnival” 

Fused together by influences that span R&B, Hip-Hop and soul with a base of reggae and dancehall, WSTRN’s artistry reaches far beyond their Caribbean roots. The trio’s ear lends itself to experimenting with different soundscapes and their releases so far attest to their worldwide appeal. The group made their mark in 2015 with release ‘IN2’, amassing over 108M streams to date with their debut album WSTRN season 2 following on in August 2019. Ever since, the summer period has been rightfully dubbed as ‘WSTRN Season’ by fans.  

Fast forward to present day and over 300 million worldwide streams later, the trio are steadily crafting their second studio album. “We were born into music, it has always found us. We’re ready to capture more ears and take this to the next level.” As Akelle tells it, expect more to come from WSTRN as over half a decade later, their ‘season’ is proving to be evergreen.

WSTRN’s captivating genre fusion sound continues to define and establish the MOBO award winning trio as one of the UK’s most exciting collectives. With early support from tastemakers Complex, GRM DAILY, The Fader, The Guardian and Clash Magazine positioning them as bonafide mood creators.  If “Be My Guest” is any indication of what’s to come, be sure to keep your eyes and ears open as WSTRN season is coming in thick and fast.

Grammy-nominated Atlanta rapper Deante’ Hitchcock shares his first new single of the year, “U Were Right I Was Wrong,” out now via ByStorm Entertainment/RCA Records.

The slick new single tells the story of Deante’ and his partner in the throes of an argument, cleverly referencing the classic line of “you were right, I was wrong” throughout the song’s chorus. Driven by its sleek, seductive production and Deante’s penchant for clever lyricism, his latest single is a playful ode to the familiar ebbs and flows of a relationship.

Set to release a slew of new music in 2023, “U Were Right I Was Wrong” follows last year’s release of Deante’s single “Alone” and the Valentine’s Day-themed EP Everyday The 14th. Deante’ closed out 2022 with the release of the two-pack project Callin’ All My Children, which showcased a unique blend of Deante’s southern rap roots and retro production influences, with features from Mississippi rapper and producer Big K.R.I.T. and Compton’s Westside Boogie.
