GoldKay has been making waves both here in the UK and West Africa with his unique spin on mixing elements of UK rap and R&B and into how own style. To accompany his latest single “Like That”, the London based artist has dropped this fun animation music video, which mirrors the holiday feels that the track is based around.
The single, which has already garnered 25000 streams on Spotify, is centred around a laid back afrobeat rhythm, with GoldKay’s melody-rich vocal delivery punctuated with chorus hooks from the aptly named Captain Hook – resulting in a smooth, radio friendly jam nicely timed for these sunnier times. The love song and visuals were inspired by a memorable holiday before recent events took hold across the world.
Harking back to those times, GoldKay explains, “As we are approaching summer, the afroswing vibe gives it that holiday feel, lifting spirits during this difficult time. It gives the listener room to imagine or place themselves in this holiday story”.
This month, he went in to BBC London Radio to talk about his numerous TV appearances as part of the acclaimed gospel choir Gospel Singers Incognito as well as the transition to being a solo artist.
Earlier this year he took part in BBC 2’s The Choir show hosted by Gareth Malone – on the show, he helped coach inmates at Aylesbury Young Offenders Institute in forming the prison’s first choir and the show’s finale performance.
Prior to his solo career, as part of Gospel Singers Incognito, he took part in various TV shows such as BBC’s All Together Now, Channel 4’s Celebrity Come Dine With Me, ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent, A League Of Their Own on Sky One, and has also provided backing vocals for the likes of Dappy, Jaz Ellington (The Voice), Crazy Cousins and more.
