A couple of months ago one of my favourite R&B singers out of UK released an EP.
Whose this UK Singer
His real name is Cole Basta but he goes by Col3trane. His born of American and Egyptian parents. Col3trane is one of those artists who I think are putting London R&B music scene on the map. The other ones being Ebenezer whom I mentioned in R&B to look out for in 2018 and Little Simz whom I mentioned in Females Rappers Flying Under The Radar.
Now on to the EP
His latest EP was released in August on the 17th. It’s named BOOT, it has seven tracks. On that EP I think the best track is track 2 called Britney. If you already know Col3trane I also don’t know what’s up with him and naming songs after girls but yeah that’s what’s up. Britney goes along the lines of what he did Penelope from his first project Tsarina. Before we move away from Penelope I have to say that has to be his greatest hit so far and I am not alone as Penelope is currently at more than 7 million listens on Spotify at the time of writing and it’s ranked as his most played song.
Above is the album cover which goes nicely with the name of the EP and below you will find the handwritten track list which he shared on the day the EP was released via Instagram. For some reason, I find the tracklist a nice personal touch to the whole thing.
I will leave you with his performance of Penelope on Color.
