Ramz – Sunday

Record-breaking British rapper Ramz has released new single ‘Sunday’ via Polydor Records.

 ‘Sunday’s the first track to be lifted from Ramz’s forthcoming Blockbuster EPdue for release on 17thMay. Drawing on a broad spectrum of musical influences and featuring a variety of carefully selected guest artists, the Blockbuster EPdocuments Ramz’s journey to date, while showcasing his versatility as an artist.  “The word ‘Block’ refers to where I’ve come from, while ‘Buster’ is a nod to the fact I’ve done so many things I thought I’d only dream of doing.”Says Ramz. “My life felt like a movie in 2018… I couldn’t even begin to put it all into words, until now. I’m from Mitcham, a little talked about South London suburb, and I know I wasn’t doing this just for myself, but also for people like me, from my hometown.”

A little over a year ago Ramone Rochester(aka Ramz) was studying Sports Development at university and working at Sainsbury’s. Then he dropped his debut single, ‘Barking’ and it all changed…

Having amassed over 280 million global streams and 58 million video views, Ramz’s Certified Platinum and Brits 2019 nominatedBarking’, was the most streamed UK Urban track of 2018, the most viewed video of all time on GRM Daily and included in Spotify’s ‘UK Top tracks of 2018’and Capital Xtra’s ‘Best Grime & UK Hip Hop Songs Of 2018’. This followed it reaching #1 on Apple Music UK, #1 on Spotify UK(a world first for a debut single from an artist), #2 on the UK Official Singles chart(crowning Ramz as the highest charting British urban artist since 2015) anda#1 streaming hit in Germany.

The follow-up singles to ‘Barking’ – the Certified Silver‘Family Tree’ and recently released ‘Hold You Down’– have ensured Ram has now notched up 2.2 million+ record sales, 370 million+ streams and 86 million+ YouTube views.

Ramz’s brand new single ‘Sunday’, is produced by Banx & Ranx(Dua Lipa, Sean Paul, Stefflon Don, Lady Leshurr), and was premiered by DJ Target on Radio 1Xtralast night. A feel-good anthem,‘Sunday’ is inspired by Ramz’s girlfriend – his “Monday Tuesday Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday”. The accompanying music video was directed by Kaylum Dennis and shot in Santorini.

Earmarked by The Fader as an artist who “deserves to blow up in 2018” and described by Pigeons & Planes as “poised to make a real impact in 2018”, Ramzhas delivered on the hype, cementing his reputation as the upcoming British artist to watch. With an unprecedented rise to glory that is a testament to an ever-evolving and expanding UK music scene, Ramz’s lyrics provide a time capsule snapshot of the corners of the capital and are as relatable as his success-story is aspirational. While he may be a newcomer to the game, Ramz is holding all the Aces and his ambitions are sky high.
