Listen to MPHO "See Me Now" feat. Wale

Mpho-see-me-now-mp3

Listen to a brand-new version of MPHO's excellent "See You Now" that features a cameo from rapper Wale. A previous version of "See Me Now" was released by Parlophone a few months ago, but the label put out this new version last week to warm up the masses for the singer's upcoming debut LP. Also, listen to the Toddla T remix of "See You Now."

You may remember that massively hot track "Box 'N Locks" that first got me to take note of this hot new talent, follow by her stunning rendition of Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill."

MPHO is by far one of the freshest new voices to hit the scene this year. The London based singer  was born in South Africa and raised in a racially mixed family of musicians and political activists in the UK. Suffice to say that her life story is as colourful as her music. A press release describes that the "overriding theme of both [her life and music] has been MPHO's determination to find her own space, to define herself on her own terms." Her debut LP, titled "Pop Art," will be released early 2010 (I hope).

New MPHO! Listen to "See Me Now"

Finally! More MPHO. The London-based, South African born singer premiered her brand-new single on YouTube this week. This hot new little ditty is titled "See Me Now" and has a catchy '60s girl band vibe to it with its kicky backbeat and string section. MPHO is spunky as always. Good stuff.

Watch MPHO Cover Reverend & The Makers

This is so heartfelt. MPHO is a major talent to keep your eye on. Insanely good.

Also, just in case you've missed it, make sure to also check out MPHO's glowing video for her debut single "Box 'N Locks" that features that infectious little guitar riff from Martha and the Muffins' new wave hit "Echo Beach."

The genre-busting singer was born in South Africa and raised in a racially mixed family of musicians and political activists in the UK. Suffice to say that her life story is as colorful as her music. A press release describes that the "overriding theme of both has been MPHO's determination to find her own space, to define herself on her own terms."

Listen to Erik Hassle and MPHO "Don't Bring Me Flowers After I'm Dead"

Brilliant! This has a chorus to die for (not to mention that killer middle eight).

Check out an excellent duet between two incredible, emerging talents, Erik Hassle and MHPO. The unlikely duo duets on Hassle's "Don't Bring Me Flowers After I'm Dead." This is pure pop brilliance all around. More. more, more!

Hassle's original version of "Don't Bring Me Flowers After I'm Dead" is released in the U.K. as his debut single on August 24. The song is a powerful slice of acoustic-synth pop that features the singer's melodramatic lyrics, such as “Don’t bring flowers after I’m dead, save your givings for the living instead," which could be torn from a teenager's diary.

Listen to MPHO "Box N Locks" (Armand Van Helden Remix )

Armand Van Helden adds a whole lot of dirty dancefloor swagger to MPHO's "Box 'N Locks." This is a big, major, fat tune. Have a listen. In the meantime, support MPHO and get the single here.
