Labrinth - Let It Be

Posted about 2 years ago
Producer:
Labrinth
Album:
None (Promo Single)

It takes some serious stones to give your record the same name as one of the most popular songs by the most famous rock band ever to walk this earth. With that said, I’m not gonna do anything crazy like call Labrinth the next Paul McCartney, but I managed to listen to Let It Be without the chorus of that other jam running through my head, so I think that counts as a smashing success. The singer and emcee’s first Booth feature (though he previously made an appearance on Tinie Tempah‘s Lover Not a Fighter), this joint finds the Hackney, London repper showcasing his powerful vocal presence as he paints a dramatic picture of his own struggle to succeed. Labrinth’s eponymous backing band provides the cut’s bold, brass-laced instrumental backdrop, and an unknown director’s cinematic visuals round out the package. Let It Be isn’t part of a larger project, but fans can cop the record now as a single on iTunes.
