Clement Marfo & The Frontline feat Ghetts - 'Champion'
A seamless and worthy track
That said, Clement Marfo formed his cross-genre Frontline partly inspired by Linkin Park and Jay-Z’s Collision Course project. Bands that adopt the explicit aim of straddling a range of sounds rather than just doing it without thinking run the risk of sounding forced (see: Mongrel). ‘Champion’, though, has smooth seams, a feisty, brass-lit attack and an air-punchy chorus that’s anything but worthy.
