Making one of the most notable returns of 2017 with the release of his first album in nearly ten years, Ironik continues to elevate and spar alongside the new generation of UK sound creators with his new single ‘Watch Nuttin’ featuring Ayo Beatz, premiering with DJ Target on BBC Radio 1Xtra.
Featuring twice on the ‘Truth Be Told’ album, providing both production and vocals on new party track ‘Watch Nuttin’, and again on the final track of the album ‘Mercy’, Ayo Beatz, who has recently gained over 1.6 million hit on his video for ‘Big Man Ting’, clearly has an undeniable chemistry in the studio with Ironik, making them quite the dynamic duo.
The album received an exceptional response with heavy support across BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra, the Capital network and Kiss FM all jumping on board, resulting in album streams of over 200k to date with still another 4 singles to come, adding to his lengthy list of previous achievements that include a number 5 official chart position, a top 5 single, one top 10 single, a top 10 album and over a million record sales. Ironik has also received support from the likes of PAPER Mag and The Hype Magazine as well as GRM Daily and Link Up TV who recently interviewed him about the album and his return.
Talking on his album, Ironik says: “Truth Be Told’ is only my second studio album since my first ‘No Point In Wasting Tears’ and it’s definitely my best work to date. I’ve been all over the world in the last two years DJ’ing in countries like Dubai, Japan and all over Europe and its undoubtedly inspired my music but there’s no place like home and whilst I reflect the influences I’ve had, the album remains a testament to being UK and homegrown.”
