Kaleem Taylor – “Interlude” | Music Video

This time last week I had no idea who Kaleem Taylor was – I discovered him on Monday via a Google search prompted by seeing him on the flyer as a support act for Miguel at the singer’s forthcoming London show. At that point I didn’t even check out Kaleem’s music, instead following him on Twitter, and figuring he’d either impress me or otherwise in his own time. (Yes, I’m one of those people who follows cheaply on Twitter, as evidenced by the amount of cleavage on my “following” list. Just kidding… kinda.) Fortunately it didn’t take long for my all-or-nothing Twitter gamble to pay off. Earlier today the 20-year-old dropped these visuals for track “Interlude.”

Hearing that was enough to prompt me to go exploring, so I headed to his Soundcloud where he’s uploaded a couple more cuts – “Never” and “Blow Out”. It turns out “Blow Out” was also featured on DJ Target’s Homegrown show on BBC Radio 1Xtra as the “Homegrown Download” last month too. This kid’s a real R&B talent with a bright future ahead of him. Keep an eye on him, I reckon he’s going places.
