Benga ft BeBe Black - 'Icon'

A build-up to nothing

Benga’s first single from his second solo album is a bit of a tease. You spend the whole song waiting for the mental, hands-in-the-air, throw your drink in some girl’s hair all-going-off bit, and it just doesn’t happen, leaving you unsatisfied and having to finish yourself off (with the good bit of the Cheryl single).
