London - She Put It Down
In January of ‘08, DJBooth.net introduced readers to Universal Motown signee London via his Twista-assisted single, One 2 Many. Over the past 20 months, we have featured four additional records, including current single B4 U Go, but none have succeeded in catching on at radio and catapulting the Oakland-born singer to true priority status at his label. Ready to do whatever it takes to grab listeners’ attention, the Atlanta resident has unleashed another potential inclusion on his debut album, Man of My Word. On She Put It Down, a sexy, slowly-winding jam that features production from The Legion (formerly known as The Slapboyz), London acts as a play-by-play announcer, describing the moves of a female who is “working it” on the dance floor. While he isn’t the first (and most certainly will not be the last) to create an R&B cut centered around women dancing at the club, London’s ability to ride the beat should turn a few casual listeners into fans. There is currently no release date for Man of My Word.
