Reece, Carl, Aaron and Eden Sakyi – aka Sakyi 4 – have been very busy over the last few years, churning out new material to appease fans that miss some good old-fashioned afterhours R&B and to fill that void, the guys unveiled their fourth official release ‘I Need You’.
Their latest GKID-produced single is sure to strengthen their reputation as one of the promising and exciting R&B groups coming from the UK. The quartet puts their modern stamp on 90s-style after hours R&B accompanied with a seamless soulful bass which already received a massive thumbs up from the likes of The Hype Magazine, Conversations About Her and Niji Magazine as well as earning a spot on Discover Nu’s playlist on iTunes and Spotify.
‘I Need You’ follows their 2017 R&B/Afrobeat fused single, ‘Simmer Down’ which received support from the likes of R&B Magazine, BRASH! Magazine and New Wave District. The music video for the ‘Simmer Down’ clocked up over 20,000 views, premiered via The Link Up TV.
Since appearing on Britain’s Got Talent in 2015 – where Simon Cowell said they have ‘great potential’ – Sakyi 4 have caught the attention of SBTV founder Jamal Edwards with track ‘Bad As You’ and featured the music video on his platform. To date, the music video for ‘Bad As You’ has generated over 36,000 views.
Exposed to various styles of music from an early age, the North West Londoners turned their hand to song writing, citing Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson as strong influences. With smooth and weak-at-the-knees lyrics featured in ‘I Need You’, these guys are definitely on their way to possess the lyrical standard of nineties/noughties R&B favourites Joe, Ne Yo and Chris Brown.
‘I Need You’ is available now on all major digital/streaming platforms, including iTunes and Spotify.
