Wretch 32 - Doing OK feat. Jacob Banks
True to form, ‘Doing OK’ once again sees Wretch showing his support for new home-grown talent as he calls on the dulcet tones of Birmingham’s finest, Jacob Banks who recently supported Alicia Keys on her UK tour. Bank’s velvety vocal melts over a flowing piano melody that is blanketed by the sound of a rolling snare drum cushioned with a cruising bassline and soaring tribal vocal sounds that set the scene of rolling African plains.
Lyrically showcasing Wretch’s effortless flow, this is a reminiscent track recalling memories of life before fame and the unconditional need to keep grating and to build a better life for his family. ‘Doing OK’ is a humbling retrospective of the recent journey Wretch has embarked upon in becoming a bona fide artist, musician and role model. Both ‘Doing OK’ & ‘Blackout’ capture the mood and the essence Wretch has created on the forthcoming album.
