Fire Tune Of The Day: Dave – Tequila

by Olu

Today’s FTOD is by super santan Dave! He’s back again with his brand new single Tequila, which dropped an hour ago. Anyone who keeps tabs on this blog knows that I’m a huge fan of his artistry & I’ve already featured him twice on here. The record showcases everything I love about the Streatham MC’s music from his cadence to his catchy metaphors & I especially love the football references in his music, which make his songs feel even more authentically British. My standout bar on the record is a nod to Jose Mourinho & goes:

I told my baby “Don’t worry what a hoe say” ’cause me and you both know you’re the special one
And if I can’t get a ring for your hand, you can leave Chelsea and fly into Milan

Now that’s one hell of a footy reference & any football lovers should get it immediately. The record was produced by frequent collaborator Fraser T Smith & 169. I have a strong feeling that a Dave project is right around the corner but in the meantime, peep the visuals directed by Director LX below.
