Single Review: Professor Green – ‘I Need You Tonight’2 min read
Professor Green, is a rapper that has come a long way in the the last 3 years. He was signed to Mike Skinners (of the The Streets fame) record label The Beats for a short period before winning the Jump Off MySpace rap battle tournemount in 2009 and in that time has even managed to survive his very own stabbing.
All dramas aside he has come out on top with a song that is bound for the top of the charts and destined to become one of the summer anthems of 2010.
I Need You Tonight borrows probably one of the most loved and recognizable antipodean tunes of the past 30 years – INXS’ 1987 hit, I Need You Tonight. From the second that iconic guitar riff comes blaring from your stereo speakers you cant help but love the song.
Though the rapping leaves a lot to be desired – often sounding quite lagged and paced with a chav overture – the production of the track and the choice of sample is what makes this a cracker. With the help of special guest Ed Drewett, the tracks chorus is also worth a sing-a-long and is a great follow up hook.
