AJ released his first studio album today and it's absolute fire.

I really wasn't expecting to like this one so much, He's really quietly sneaked up to become one of my favourites at the moment. Shame he chose today to release it though because, at least for me, it's going to get massively overshadowed by Ariana.

"Country Star" is amazing - I hope it gets to #1 somehow. wub.gif

Just given a listen to 'Ladbroke Grove' from this album and I'm absolutely loving it, wasn't expecting an all-out UK garage track from him!!

'Psych Out!' has really grown on me as well and 'Butterflies' was also great, he seems very versatile ~

'Psych Out' I appreciate the vibe of this track more and more with every play.

Can we all just appreciate how amazing Ladbroke Grove is. Thank you Bre for recommending it! Conducta's production is stunning.

My fave off the album, along with Nothing But Net and Doing It!
That pitched Jorja Smith sample is beautiful.

Ladbroke Grove video out now

Shame he's left it so late that it's already on ACR now.

Been cycling through Psych Out, Rina and Ladbroke Grove recently! Certainly head and shoulders above most of the UK's rap scene currently and maybe a surprise BRITS nominee?

The label can request it be put back on SCR if they're pushing it as a single though right?

Posted by: lewistgreen May 27 2019, 02:38 PM

Ladbroke Grove is now a single! C List on 1Xtra right now, hope R1 will follow suit. I don't think it's on ACR as it's climbed to #52 this week?

Posted by: Mack. Jun 18 2019, 11:09 AM

'Ladbroke Grove' now on SCR and managed to climb to #26. Really enjoying 'Ladbroke Grove'.

I don't get the hype for Ladbroke Grove. I don't like the female/hook part at all.

Nothing has came close to Butterflies - what an absolute stomper of a song.

Posted by: Mack. Jun 24 2019, 12:39 PM

And 'Ladbroke Grove' continued to climb by 4 places to a new peak of #22.

Posted by: Liаm Jun 24 2019, 12:40 PM

Ladbroke Grove is soooo good omg I didn't expect that! Might have to check out more of his stuff.

Posted by: Mack. Jul 1 2019, 12:20 PM

Next this going Top 20 for him? We'll have to see. Sounding great this.

Posted by: SLlewellyn Jul 1 2019, 10:52 PM

Up to #18 in the mids, so hopefully - crazy to think a post-album single would do so well for him.

Album has not long gone Silver too, which is great going!

And did go Top20 for him. By climbing to #16 in the recent chart.

Posted by: Mack. Jul 18 2019, 04:08 PM

Now climbed to a new peak on Spotify to #11 yesterday. I'm sure this could go Top 10 for him.

Posted by: coi Jul 18 2019, 04:43 PM

Looks very likely that Ladbroke Grove will go top ten this week!

Posted by: Mack. Jul 18 2019, 04:55 PM

We shall see if it does happen in tomorrow's chart. Fingers crossed.

Posted by: coi Jul 19 2019, 04:23 PM

Ladbroke Grove is now #6!

Posted by: Bré Jul 21 2019, 09:40 PM

I thought it had a chance to beat the peak of 'Fashion Week' at the rate it was rising but did not expect that to be as soon as this week considering it was only #9 in the last mids! Easily the best song he's been involved with to date (that I've heard at least) so it's fantastic to see that represented by its chart peak despite how long it took him to get around to promoting it as a single, still rising on Spotify so it might yet go top 5 even.

I can only hope this will lead to a bit more of a UK garage revival rather than just being a one-off hit like 'When The Bassline Drops'.

Posted by: Mack. Jul 22 2019, 02:07 PM

Fantastic to see go Top 10 for him. Yes I would say also this is the best track that he has done.
