One more step to achieving a UK Number 1 single for Ram…’Barking’ is up to number 2 this week.
UK Urban couldn’t have been in a much better position right now. A year ago, no one envisaged the scene being in the Top 10 or Top 20 of the official charts more often but it has become a norm in the last few months.
A look at the Official Charts top 10 single, you would see Ramz single ‘Barking’ at number 2 – climbing up 2 places from last weeks number 4.
It still feels surreal for the Mitcham rapper who has thanking those who’s supporting him –
“I honestly have to thank my mum, Gran, sister, uncle, Aunty and friends that helped me with actually doing the barking video I struggled for a long time when I think about it, not having a job was very tough but I was speaking to the man upstairs (GOD) everyday”
“If I look back to last year February I put my first song out I’m On My Grind and now I look at what I have achieved it is actually crazy whoever said your life can change in a year it actually can”
“You actually wouldn’t believe you if I told you where I have worked before I dropped Barking and decided not to go back to work”
“Primark, sainsburys, coaching children, Mayday hospital (Porter), arsenal steward, Waitrose (left after a day couldn’t manage it because the night shift was peak I started at 00:00 ended at 05:00 and then I had no cab money so I had to wait a hour for the bus) sports assistant” – He tweeted.
Back to charts, Raye’s single with Mr Eazi ‘Decline’ has finally crawled into the Top 20 at number 15, thanks to attention drawn to it following the remix with Ramz. Other notable singles in the Top 20 this week are Not3s ‘My Lover‘, Big Shaq’s ‘Man’s Not Hot‘ and Dave’s ‘NoWords‘.
A quick look the Album Chart, and J Hus’ debut album is close to getting back to the Top 20, thanks to his performance at the Brits Nomination ceremony.
That’t it for this week, be sure to check back next week to see if Ramz can finally get that Number 1 single.
