After wowing the general public on the 2013 series of The X Factor with their smooth vocals, fun personalities and street style, Rough Copy are set to burst onto the music scene with their debut single, Street Love!
The London trio made up of Kazeem, Joey and Sterling, now signed to Epic Records, offer a re-working of 80s classic ‘Sweet Love’ by Anita Baker, with a twist in the verses showcasing their new musical style and a lot of personality.
Street Love is instantly catchy and offers a great opening tune, which is extremely memorable, especially if you know the original track – it quickly builds to produce an energetic, party vibe.
However, it seems to fall flat from the initial build and the chorus leaves us feeling underwhelmed compared to that of the catchy verses.
The video, teamed with the song, show the three lads chasing a beautiful woman down the street to no avail, which is completely cliche. However, the lads ensure to show their personalities and the track fits the video perfectly with it’s R’n’B, urban feel.
Overall, this song is bound to achieve success and is easy on the ears, especially with the 80s vibe and has left us singing along with the track on repeat. We do, however, hope that the lads have some more tracks on their way with some of those incredible harmonies that featured during their time on the X Factor.
Watch the Street Love video below and let us know what you think!
