My new single of the week is the brilliant 'Cheerleader' by OMI (the Felix Jaehn Remix).
Apparently this was first released back in 2012, but its this latest remixed version that's lit up the charts giving it a number 1 spot in the UK singles chart, amongst others!
OMI is a Jamaican singer - real name Omar Samuel Pasley. This song definitely has more than a subtle hint of reggae to it. Its a really summer vibe - think relaxing by the beach, gently swaying to the beat.
The video is equally summer time. Blue seas, blue skies - pretty girls, and dancing. Its totally chillaxed this song.
This is not just a great summer song, its also a love song. The lyrics are so lovely 'She gives me love and affection, baby did I mention, you're the only girl for me, no I don't need a next one'. Then it finishes with 'Now all that's left to do is just for me to pop the question'.
All in all this is a real feel good song. Its already a huge hit, but I can see this getting plenty more airplay over the summer months. If you haven't heard it, go take a listen and let me know what you think.
