British rapper Chipmunk has been hard at work on his second album and recently he unveiled the warm up single from the album – along with a new video for the track. It’s called Flying High and was released on iTunes the very same night which was an interesting move. Chip releases the new album in early 2011 and it’s titled “Transition”.
After premiering the track on DJ Mistajam’s show on 1xtra, and Zane Lowe’s show on Radio1 simultaneously,Chipmunk unveiled the video to his new single “Flying High”. I love the video production and the Safari theme.
This track grew on me a lot , I’m impressed with the hook, and its good news to hear the young rapper deviating from his recent pop releases. It’s refreshing to see him switching up the styles and bringing in a transition in his music!!
Chipmunk is one of those guys that people love to hate but secretly admire at the same time. The talk about him ‘selling out’ and becoming shit is ever-present; in fact I’m pretty sure it will never end! However, at the end of the day, people need to realise that this guy has done very well in a very short space of time. And with the news that Chris Brown , (yes you read that right) is set to feature on his new single , then you have to applaud Chip! He knows what he wants and he will strive to get it. He knows that by getting Breezy on his single then it’s gonna open a lot of doors in the future for him. A VERY SMART MOVE!
A very good effort here, one that’s bound to be a big massive mainstream hit and a hit with the radio play lists too!, as well as one that Chris Brown fans will love as he brings his A-game for the hook.
