After playing second fiddle to the likes of Bashy, Chipmunk and Sway for the past few years, Loick Essien finally gets a chance to step out of the shadows with his first solo single Love Drunk.
Loick was recently snapped up by Sony and was quickly signed on a development deal. Since then he has spent much of his time travellingÂ between LA and Sweden working on writing and recording his debut album.
Love Drunk is a Labrinth produced electro/R&B crossover track that should place highly in the UK charts if he gets sufficient backing from Sony. Labrinth of course is signed to Sony’s umbrella record label Syco, so I’d expect to his name appear frequently on the album’s final tracklist.
