REGGIE ‘N’ BOLLIE: New Single ‘BUMAYE’ out now!
Pop/Afrobeats/Dancehall duo Reggie ‘N' Bollie are back with an infectious, unabashed summery vibe of a single ‘Bumaye’ on their very own fresh new label F.R.O.D MUSIC Ltd!
Reggie ‘N’ Bollie moved to the UK from Ghana in 2010 after having successful solo careers in their homeland. They rose to fame after their appearance on The X Factor in 2015 where they were 1st Runners Up and their instant popularity with viewers and audiences allowed them to launch a successful career in UK. Among their most ardent fans was their X Factor mentor Cheryl, who continued to support them in the months after the show. Their energetic performances and infectious style convinced Simon Cowell to sign them to his Syco Music label. Five months after their appearance on the reality show, Reggie ‘N' Bollie released their first single, ‘New Girl’ which was an instant summer hit charting at #8 in the Scottish Charts and #5 on UK iTunes Charts. Their second single, ‘Link Up’ sampled Peter Andre's hit single, ‘Mysterious Girl’.
The past two years have certainly been a crazy rollercoaster ride for Reggie ‘N’ Bollie. And this upward trajectory is set to continue as the duo take full control of their musical careers. Early this year they announced their amicable departure from Syco Music and delighted their fans by announcing their newly established Independent label named F.R.O.D MUSIC Ltd.
‘Bumaye’ is the second single released on the new label and is a celebration: a cheer or hurrah call for life. It is also a fantastic excuse to show off your ‘Bumaye’ dance moves, whatever they may be! The track is a fun song- perfect for summer celebration, but in all seriousness, it also signals a new and exciting style for Reggie ‘N ‘Bollie. As the duo say:
"Bumaye is a summation of the cultural mix and our development as songwriters and Artists. It takes us away from the stereotypical Reggie ‘N’ Bollie style and it means a lot to us as it is the last track we recorded for the album. We all love it and we hope our fans love it too."
Exciting times for an enduring duo who have the energy, style and commitment to take their future confidently into their own hands. As their slogan goes, they are "Fearlessly Ruling Their Destinies". With almost 6 and a half MILLION views on Youtube they already have a fantastic start as they prepare for the release of their debut album. All together now: “Won’t you show me the Bumaye!”
