My Heart Skips a Beat – Olly Murs and the Rizzle Kicks

Posted on July 08, 2012

The Rizzle Kicks have been a bit of slow burn for me, every time I have seen them performing I have warmed to them a little more. Then when they did this collaboration with Olly Murs I started to think ‘yes I get them a bit’. Might be because I share a common surname with one half of the pair, Jordan “Rizzle” Stephens, but I doubt it. Don’t get me wrong, I am not about to turn into a hip hop granddad wearing lots of bling and talking funny. I am just saying, actually they are not bad and I can see why a lot of kids are into them.

They got noticed by taking their productions to Youtube and after going down a bit of a storm they were picked up by the Islands Records record label. It is the collaboration with Olly Murs that got them a number 1 spot in the UK and their own track ‘Down with the Trumpets’ made it to number 8 and stayed in the top 40 for 13 weeks. So not so shabby and probably only a matter of time before they have their very own stand alone number 1.

This is their Stereo Typical album.
