Amazing connecting with the legendary Emeli via my brother Nana Rogues….this is a great cultural moment
‘More of You’, released on new record label,Manchester based ‘Sengge Zangbo, captures the moment of falling in love in a joyous, energetic song infused with a beautiful new wave of afro soul.
Emeli wrote the song in LA after she met up with Nana Rogues and he left her with some beats, which she describes as ‘sunshine inspired’.
“I was falling in love,” she explains, “and I wanted to sum up the feeling that creeps up on you and catches you by surprise.
“First the feelings are subtle, a strange sensation of missing someone you consider a friend which starts to build. In this song I wanted to capture the crossover moment when you realise the subtle feelings you once perhaps denied have now been realised into something undeniable you want to shout from the rooftops.
“You can’t get enough, you can’t share their love and want the whole world to know how beautiful they are to you.”
Stonebwoy adds; “’More of You’ is a big record!
“Amazing connecting with the legendary Emeli via my brother Nana Rogues….this is a great cultural moment with three super-sonic creatives on one masterpiece.”
