The Radar: One Time – Prido ft. Tabitha Jade
What happens when a Liverpool based soul singer collaborates with a Manchester based rapper? Planet Slop finds out.
Tabitha Jade is name we have heard a lot over the last few months.
She has received great acclaim, particularly for her live performances, where she has played on stages big and small up and down the country.
Now Jade has collaborated with Manchester-based rapper Prido on brand new track One Time.
Prido hails from the North West of England, but is of Zambian origin. He made waves with his track 2011 which was featured in heavy rotation on Channel Aka and Flava TV back in 2013, and Skip 2 The Dance, a funky Grime tune, continues to capture the masses.
Their collaboration, One Time, is a glorious mesh of their two individual styles.
Jade has always had a soulful vibe, her formative years devouring R&B, dance, reggae, jazz, pop and hip hop records, all of this comes out in her music. Prido meanwhile considers his primary influences to be Tinchy Stryder, Tinie Tempah, Lil Wayne and Kano. Both artists put their own stamp on the song, which suggests true collaboration and has already been picked up by BBC Introducing.
The song is about a relationship the cycle; heart break, knowing you can’t be together, then after a night of intoxication the inevitable happens. The next morning, they wake up regretting their dalliance.
One Time is available to stream and download now.
