Daley feat. Jessie J - Remember Me

Could Daley finally be about to break into the mainstream?

After coming to prominence as a nominee in the BBC Sound of 2011 list and releasing his 'Those Who Wait' EP last year, Daley has remained underground.  This collaboration with Jessie J is sure to boost his career into the charts.

Remember Me is a disappointment though.  Sampling Blueboy's 1997 hit of the same name, the chorus is catchy if already familiar and the squelching bassline adds a funk edge to Daley's RnB-soul sound.  Even a quick look at his YouTube channel, though, reveals a multitude of other tracks that show off Daley's vocal far more than here.  And, although her participation is minimal, the inclusion of Jessie J is a rather cynical way of injecting some pop appeal.

Remember Me is a funky pop track from a talented vocalist - it's just far from his best work.  Undoubtedly, there'll be an album on the way soon to showcase more of Daley's talents.


Listen: Remember Me is released soon.
