Single Review: Talay Riley – ‘Sergeant Smash’

2 min read

Already having scored a number one smash after penning Chipmunks monster single, Oopsey Daisy, RnB’s smooth operator Talay Riley is paving the way to stardom with the release of his second single, Sergeant Smash, which sees its release on February 14th through Jive Records.

TalayRileySergeantSmashThe rapper is already on his way to replicate the success of fellow hip hop masters Taio Cruz and Tinie Tempah with his brand of addictive, hip hop pop splendor which was first delivered on his debut single Humanoid.

Beginning with a drilling and industrially militant approach the track erupts into a cool, RnB groove monster with some rolling drums that welcome Riley’s laid back rhyming. Sergeant Smash is a slow-jam for the hip hop star who is perfectly fitting among the genres rising league of urban princes including Taio Cruz, Flo Rida and current UK favorite, Tinie Tempah, who have all become masters of successfully combining electro-pop with the grime heavy slamming of the hip hop scene.

Sergeant Smash is a meaty release for Riley proving to be not only a fantastic showcase following Humanoid’s successes but also evidence of the rappers abilities that will see the vocalist’s rise as one of the UK’s finest stars and one that will see Riley slotting into the league of the UK’s finest in RnB chart successes in no time.
