Starboy Nathan – “Dark Room” | New Music

UK R&B singer Starboy Nathan has been causing quite a ruckus online with his unexpected audition for the UK’s well renowned (but heavily criticised) X Factor talent show.

The singer has worked with the likes of Wretch 32 and US artist Flo-Rida to name a few, but made his difficulties known to an audience of thousands detailing the uphill struggles of being an independent artist whilst still trying to gain mass recognition.

To the surprise of many of his existing fans, he did not make it to the live stages of the competition but the brief exposure has definitely led him in the right direction; within minutes of his X Factor departure, his new freestyle “Dark Room”surfaced online. 

A four minute monologue of deep reflection with moody instrumentation and crisp vocal delivery, Starboy Nathan alternates between rap and singing recalling the pain of having lost his father in the midst of pursuing his musical dreams. Listen and download below.
