LEO NAPIER — Dime

American blue-eyed R&B-infused soul singer LEO NAPIER [born to British parents, so he spent time in London during his childhood ] worked with New York DJ/Producers Gramatik and GRiZ [and many others] from 2014 till relatively recently.

Now he finds his way with a debut single ‘Dime’ produced by the legendary hit-man producer  Richard Gotterher.

"Dime" - articulate contemporary lyrics about breaking/losing/getting back a dime...
“Dime” – articulate contemporary lyrics about breaking/losing/getting back a dime…

We had an early listen:

Jessie’ J’s “Price Tag” first comes to mind when you hear this single crack along on its jaunty pace.

The percussion-riff on that number so perfectly matched Black Heat’s “Zimba Ku” that it still causes a grumble.

Anyhoo, expect — on this too — a thick rubbery reggae bass and narrow chips of guitar.

On “Dime” we also get articulate contemporary lyrics about breaking/losing/getting back a dime

You might know that a dime is worth ten cents  [if you live in London, maybe not] but you almost certainly don’t know the other definition  :
A gorgeous, sexy woman.

With an absurdly attractive voice and twinkly-smiling rhythm, this one stands out.
