The X Factor champs Rak-Su are back with new EP Rome, which is available to stream and download today.
Taking the four-piece back to their signature sound fusing reggaeton, rap and R&B, the EP kicks off with lead track Into It. Fans will appreciate the throwback sound that will remind them why they fell in love with the group in the first place.
Listen to the Rome EP below:
Rome draws from Rak-Su’s own musical tastes and reflects their individual life experiences. Jamaal grew up singing gospel, Mustafa spent years winning beatboxing contests, and Ashley and Myles made grime and trap together as teenagers.
Rak-Su said, ‘People don’t realise that before X Factor we were together as a band making music we loved & were inspired by. This EP allowed us to show some of the other sides to us… you get R&B, electronic, Afro-Caribbean Rak-Su. Fun, emotional, honest, party Rak-Su. We feel it’s a well-rounded snap shot into who we are both musically and as people.’
The track listing for the Rome EP is:
1. Into It
3. Stick Around
4. Blood Ties
Rak-Su will be hitting the road with Olly Murs on the popstar’s huge arena tour later this year.
