Black Saint + Rationale – Ante Up | New Music
Infectious London trio Black Saint have struck relentlessly with new fast-paced banger, “Ante Up“. The compelling new joint also features Zimbabwe-born British singer-songwriter Rationale and acts as a follow-up to the soulful house cut “Never Did This Before” which confirmed Black Saint as staples for any self-respecting dance party.
Their brilliant new music displays their effortless ability to blend sounds and influences from all over. “Ante Up” is a melting pot of urgent-feeling afro-esque rhythms and soulful house and finished off with a passionate hook from R&B artist Rationale who adds a dynamic to the single that makes the track stand out emphatically.
On the inspiration behind the single the boys say: “The song draws on the experience of being in a relationship where you know you’ve messed up, she’s the girl for you, the one that got away. “Ante Up” means to up the stakes and go all in, without holding anything back. The concept for the song came from Rationale’s personal experience”
Storming onto the international music landscape in 2016, the trio have ascended quickly, amassing over 15 million streams and gaining plaudits from the likes of Complex, Earmilk, MTV amongst many others, a testament to their dynamic approach. This song is without a doubt the group’s next dancefloor smash so don’t hesitate to press play.
