Tinchy Stryder ft Pixie Lott - 'Bright Lights'

Vapid nonsense we could do without

Far be it from us to bewail grime’s belated moment in the sun, but does it have to sound like this? Tinchy’s been MCing since before his balls dropped and has talent, of course, but this witless R&B crossover fluff (think a Ryanair retread of BoB’s ‘Airplanes’) is the kind of vapid nonsense we could all do without.
