Let’s just get this out of the way now: Beyonce’s sister is not the only Solange in the music industry. Solange Hilário, who was born in Portugal, has her first single dropping on July 20. “Tick Tock” is a bubbly cut, throwing a bit of a throwback flex on this beautiful pop track, and Wickaman steps up and gives it new life via this smashing drum & bass take. It’s a vocal that works well over an upfront dancefloor vibe, and actually makes me yearn for the 2000/2001 vibe where so many proper vocal tunes got reworked for the dnb scene. Hate to attach “anthem” to this, or “ladies tune,” primarily because I’m not an MC, but this one could work very well for both the radio and the rave.
