He’s been rather busy in the studio, writing tracks for other artists (incl. ex-girlfriend and colleague Tulisa), taking his time but fans will be pleased to hear Fazer’s completely set for the release of ‘Killer’ on August 26.
‘Killer’ itself sounds like a mix of Taio Cruz and the genre DubStep, making it sound very current for the charts, yet the questions remains whether it will be enough to follow into the footsteps of ‘Number One’ and ‘Young’ to reach the number 1 spot in the charts. While the track itself is worked out cleverly, on a first listen we get the impression there’s that catchy hook missing, which is quite necessary for an upbeat track. The track is building towards a bang, which doesn’t seem to happen.
Having said that, give it a bunch of good remixes, and a lot of radio airplay and the chances are high solo Fazer might give each N-Dubz member its first UK number one hit to fall back on. In reality however, three out of three is very unlikely. Stick to song writing and producing Fazer.
‘Killer’ is out on August 26 and available via pre-order.
