Music star Reece J hopes Theresa-inspired single May catch on
BRITISH urban music star Reece J is set to release his catchy dance single inspired by the Prime Minister’s awkward moves.
The songwriter debuts his new record ‘Dance Theresa’ to the public on iTunes, Google Play and other platforms, on October 1.
Since the UK ban of drill music – whose lyrics often describe gang warfare or threats against named groups – the songwriter, while not involved in these groups himself, found he was no longer able to produce this type of genre for others.
In May, YouTube took down around 30 music videos following a request from the Met Police.
But since seeing Theresa May’s awkward embrace of African music on her recent state visit, Reece J was inspired to take a fresh approach.
He said: “I’m trying to take the positive out of the drill situation. I don’t want the British youth to give up on making music. They should embrace their talents in a new way – like Theresa. She can’t dance but she just went up there and did her own thing. Music should be about having a good time.”
As he sings the lyrics, “I love the way you dance Theresa…Theresa… May”, the PM can be seen giving it everything she’s got in the new video.
Since Reece posted it on the Staylit.tv on Instagram, he’s had almost 45,000 views and expects to reach the million mark by next week.
Reece J, who hails from West London, was a resident DJ and host at a number of well-known London nightclubs. A former member of Official HTZ, he regularly attends the Grammy awards ceremony held in America.
Reece is a close friend of Ali Tennant, a British songwriter who has worked with One Direction, JLS, Emeli Sande, Jessie J and David Guetta, he’s also worked behind the scenes with Lady Leshurr.
