Reggie 'N' Bollie leave Cowell and release new track

NEW LABEL: Reggie 'N' Bollie

POP AFROBEATS and dancehall lovers Reggie ‘N' Bollie are back with an infectious, unabashed summery vibe of a single Bumaye, on their very-own fresh new label F.R.O.D (stands for 'fearlessly ruling our destinies) Music Ltd.

Reggie ‘N’ Bollie moved to the UK from Ghana in 2010 after having successful solo careers in their homeland. They rose to fame after their appearance on The X Factor in 2015 where they were first runners-up and their instant popularity with viewers and audiences allowed them to launch a successful career in the UK.

Among their most ardent fans was their X Factor mentor Cheryl, who continued to support them in the months after the show.

Their energetic performances and infectious style convinced Simon Cowell to sign them to his Syco Music label.

Five months after their appearance on the reality show, Reggie ‘N' Bollie released their first single, New Girl which was an instant summer hit charting at #8 in the Scottish Charts and #5 on UK iTunes Charts. Their second single, Link Up sampled Peter Andre's hit single, Mysterious Girl.

The past two years have certainly been a crazy rollercoaster ride for Reggie ‘N’ Bollie. This upward trajectory is set to continue as the duo take full control of their musical careers. Early this year they announced their amicable departure from Syco Music and delighted their fans by announcing their newly established Independent label named F.R.O.D Music Ltd.

Bumaye is the second single released on the new label and is a celebration - a cheer or 'hurrah' for life. It is also a fantastic excuse to show off your Bumaye dance moves, whatever they may be! The track is a fun song- perfect for summer celebration, but in all seriousness, it also signals a new and exciting style for Reggie ‘N ‘Bollie. As the duo say:

Bumaye is a summation of the cultural mix and our development as songwriters and artists. It takes us away from the stereotypical Reggie ‘N’ Bollie style and it means a lot to us as it is the last track we recorded for the album. We all love it and we hope our fans love it too.”

With over 6 million YouTube views and counting, the two friends are in good stead with fans as they prepare to release their debut album.
