Rag’N’Bone Man – “Hell Yeah” feat. Vince Staples

23 Oct

Rag'N'Bone Man

Stop whatever it is you are doing, grab a pair of headphones, plug in and prepare to be blown away by one of the biggest, most polished and chart ready tunes we’ve heard all year.


Hearing this gave us one of those rare and so exciting ‘holy fuck this is just amazing’ moments.

On “Hell Yeah” Brighton’s Rag’N’Bone Man has bottled soulful-hip-pop lightning and the result is quite remarkable. The vocals are raw and powerful, full of soul and heart, yet still manage to rise up into a little Bond theme-esque moment or two. The use of choral backing vocals to supplement the hook gives it an ever richer, deeper sound that fills every nook and cranny of your cranium. It adds an uplifting element to the darkness and world-weariness that runs throughout the song.

It feels a bit like the aural equivalent of watching The Wire, which as we all know is one of the best TV shows ever created. It’s dirty, rundown and desperate, but there’s hope, there’s light at the end of the tunnel and there’s an incredible and surprising soundtrack.

It is, frankly, huge and if, like us, you can’t get enough of it, check out his free EP, Wolves as well.
