New Music: MNEK – Every Little Word

MNEK - Every Little Word 500x500

Uzoechi Osisioma Emenike professionally known as MNEK, is a Grammy-nominated British singer, songwriter and producer of Nigerian descent, signed to Virgin EMI Records. His featured vocal on Gorgon City’s “Ready For Your Love” helped the song reach No. 4 on the UK Singles Chart, and now the rising artist is making us pay attention with his brand new single “Every Little Word.”

Every little bit funky as hell, the progressive pop/soul jam makes it impossible not to rock along with the 19-year-old’s every word.

“I’m hanging on to every fire, I’m hanging on to every dream / I’m hanging on to everything that I want, just so I know what I need,” he professes on the opening verse.

A flight of sounds, the experimental ups and downs make for an exciting debut from another UK based artist.
