Today’s spotlight is on Brooklyn via Memphis native, LOLO. Her new single, ‘Gangsters‘ features rapper Giggs and is out on February 10th incase you wanted to know. What is quite a big deal for this fresh face is that she will be supporting John Newman on his upcoming sold-out UK tour. He has been quite popular this year and she will get a ton of exposure form supporting him on tour.
LOLO’s forthcoming album ‘Weapon For Saturday‘ is said to be a powerful one and it appears that the strength of these songs was what landed her the support slot on Newman’s tour. So maybe it is all about the music after all! In addition to the Newman dates, LOLO is also playing in the UK early this year.
Tracks like ‘Weapon For Saturday‘, ‘Heard it from a Friend‘, and ‘Year Round Summer of Love‘ all went to the top of the HypeMachine chart and subsequently made a bit of a noise across the Internet and radio. She is a soulful singer with a fair dose of attitude and power thrown in for good measure. Take a listen to Gangsters below and see what you think and if you are going to the John Newman tour, be happy you have a great support act to enjoy as well!
