Jaykae Covers Cameo’s ‘Candy’ In 1Xtra Live Lounge

The Birmingham rapper touched base at the home of the refix, BBC Live Lounge, for a cover of Cameo’s Candy. A classic track by the funk band released in the 80s, Jaykae lays his Brum tones down to create a distinct entry to BBC 1Xtra’s long list of covers.

With a live band in support that parallel the original perfectly, the rapper, known for Moscow from his 2017 album Where Have You Been?, never misses a chance to rep the Midlands as he spits why life is sweet. The only part missing from this hybrid of funk and UK Rap is an electric slide.
