Weren't our stateside friends always meant to be the hip-hop superiors? Well, with the likes of Estelle, Dizzee Rascal and Wiley all gracing the upper reaches of the charts these days, it's fair to say that the tables are turning in our favour. Now, when you put two of London's hottest urban acts in a studio together, the results are bound to be pretty exciting.
Combining Tinchy "Prince of Grime" Stryder's 'innit' London style with Taio Cruz's enviable songwriting skills and distinctive voice, 'Take Me Back' is a real treat. With its twirling, fresh-sounding synths and bouncy beat, this has definite crossover potential and should teach the Akons of this world a thing or two about making credible, catchy urban pop music.> Click here to watch the 'Take Me Back' video
