Raghav – “Can’t Get Enough” (Featuring Iceberg Slimm)

Bhangra, Hip Hop, Pop, R&B, Soul, UK Asian

Following the undoubted success of Raghav’s features on 2Play’s hit singles, he drops his official debut from his forthcoming album, this single being called “Can’t Get Enough.” If you can move past his feet-in-cement dancing, his lack of on-screen charisma and the unnecessary Iceberg Slimm verse, you’ll recognise that Raghav is a singer of pure quality: he has a voice of pure gold. Whilst Jay Sean has the star quality, Raghav has the song-writing talent, the ear for a melody, the story-telling ability and THAT voice. What that means for the rest of the decade is uncertain – we seem to be moving towards an era of style over substance, so we’d still back Jay Sean to be the main man in five years time. But “Can’t Get Enough” is a superb start for Raghav’s album: a brilliant Mushtaq beat, an unexpected breakdown and playful lyrics all help to make this a top-class offering from the Canadian. A simmering classic.
