Stylo G talks Touch Down Success, UK Dancehall Top 4, Nicki Minaj, Dumpling + MORE

2019 has been a fruitful year for Stylo G. With arguably one of the biggest remix songs of the year Touch Down has kept the UK dancehall artist very busy.

Although the recent hit featuring Nicki Minaj and Vybz Kartel has seen Stylo G travel to multiple countries this year he is by no means new to music.

In 2007 his popular release ‘My Yute’ announced Stylo G as a UK dancehall flag barer. Infusion his style with the young Grime MCs Sickman and Ice Kid gave a fresh flavour to UK music.

Fully embracing his heritage a few years on came the smash ‘Call Me A Yardie’ a song which still plays to this day.

In 2013 Stylo G reached number 18 in the charts with his song Soundbwoy, a top 20 position that back then was not too easy to attain.

Through the years he has constantly dropped music to varying levels of success, bringing a riddim feel to his tracks. Of recent times the first hit in a run of bangers came through ‘Yu Zimme’. With a line of artists cueing up for the remix we saw Chip, Lisa Mercedes and Ms Banks all add their own little flavour to the song.

Stylo G’s Touch Down is arguably one of the biggest UK Dancehall tracks of all time. Entering into 2019 with a remix from Nicki Minaj and Vybz Kartel definitely had an impact.

‘For the last 2 3 weeks, I’ve been to Jamaica, Antigua, Canada, Bahamas, I was in Germany the other day doing a festival’

This year has been all about catching flights and shelling shows, literally speaking Just Touched Down into existence.

And just when I thought it was time to slow down ,Stylo G dropped another banger. The new responded really well to his latest track Dumplin, and in our interview he broke down how the song came about.
