Approved: Katy B & Ms Dynamite – Lights On
Katy B’s back again with yet song about a night out in the club. Okay, that’s not what all her tracks are about, but she does have a fair few on the subject (and she tackles it with smarter lyrics than most). While on her last single, ‘Katy On A Mission’, she was erupting into the room, this time around she’s being forcibly ejected. Well, she will be if she carries on demanding the DJ plays one more song and refusing to leave. Luckily, she’s got Ms Dynamite with her, who has a reasoned and forceful argument for the bouncers.
After being given the grimey dubstep treatment by Benga on ‘Katy On A Mission’, funky producer and Rinse FM stalwart Geeneus (who also produced her great cover of Inner City’s ‘Good Life’) gives ‘Lights On’ a slicker touch, giving it the potential to be an even bigger hit than its predecessor – though, with a 13 Dec release date, it may get caught up in the Christmas number one rush. Whatever, I don’t think there’s any doubt that it will be hit. Or that Katy B will be a big name in 2011.
