Room 2: Urban Classics is a great playlist full of my favourite urban tunes. It contain Hip-Hop, R&B and UK garage songs from artists including Snoop Dogg, Missy Elliot, Nina Sky and Sisqo. What I love about this playlist is that it includes some of my favourite dancehall jams like Gimme the Light by Sean Paul, No Letting Go by Wayne Wonder and Turn Me On by Kevin Lyttle. The blend of UK garage and mainstream Hip-Hop makes this playlist unique and refreshing, mostly beacuse UK garage is not as popular as it used to be however, it’s still a great genre of music. Enjoy this playlist below:

This weeks songs are:
1) Aaliyah – Rock The Boat
Aaliyah is one of the greatest R&B vocalists of all time and Rock The Boat is one of my favourite songs by her. This is the third single from her self-titled album, Aaliyah (2001), but it was released as a single in January 2002 in the US. This song is mostly about Aaliyah telling her partner how to please her sexually and she wants to spice things up in their love life. I love the groovy and hypnotic rhythm of this song which is complementary with Aaliyah’s soothing voice. The music video features Aaliyah walking on a beach and dancing on a yacht with her backup dancers. It saddens me to know that Aaliyah and her dancers died a few days later, in a plane crash, after filming the music video for Rock The Boat, R.I.P Aaliyah! Check out this beautiful song below:

2) Wilkinson – Half Light ft. Tom Cane
Wilkinson is a drum and bass artist from London but his real name is Mark Wilkinson. He first rose to fame with his single Afterglow which entered the UK charts in October 2013 and it features the uncredited vocals of Becky Hill. Half Light is the sixth single from his debut studio album, Lazers Not Included (2013). This song was released in June 2014 not only to digitally download but it is also available on vinyl. The lyrics from this song portrays someone who wants to live forever in the moment with the person he loves. What I like most about this song is the beat drop and I like the “What we felt tonight” lyric in the chorus. Check out this great song below:

3) Big Boi – Shutterbugg ft. Cutty
Shutterbugg is a Hip-Hop single by the American rapper, Big Boi, released in June 2012 in the UK. This song appeared on his debut album Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty (2010). ‘Shutterbugg’ in this song means the paparazzi and he’s telling people to flash a a peace sign when they see the paparazzi to look cool. I love the beat in this song and this is what catches your attention when you first listen to this song. This crazy song is reflected in the music video which features a mountain of sneakers, a wall of red cups and other weird settings so, please check out this awesome song below:
