Breaking Through: @MNEK with “Every Little Word” and a Cool Cover Tune

MNEK, “Every Little Word” and “Never Leave You”

It’s been about a year and a half since I last wrote about British singer/producer/remixer MNEK being someone to watch for, and 2014 could see that breakthrough given the quality of his new single “Every Single Word”.  Back in 2011 he was somewhat of a whiz kid on the scene at only 17.  Now at 19 and signed to Virgin, it looks like his own recordings and performances could be poised for great things.  “Every Little Word”, supported by a colourful Lamar & Nik video, has a really 80’s new jack swing retro vibe but with a vocal quality that will put him in the same leagues as fellow Brit Sam Smith, but with more rhythmic songs.  An equal joy to listen to, and as a free download available below, is his ‘refix’ of a song that would be considered now as a guilty pleasure to some – Lumidee’s 2003 Top 5 hit “Never Leave You”.  But the singer nails it and brings out a convincingly fun vibe to make the song his own.  You can get “Every Little Word” on iTunes now.
