New Music | Hunny Madu & Radio3000 Team Up For "Get Money" : aforadio.com

Local hip-hop singer-songwriter and entrepreneur, Hunny Madu teamed up with American rap star Radio3000 for "Get Money". This infectious vibe took two sessions for the rappers to work on and after previewing it with producers in the States (Jay Tablet & Bennett), it is delivered back to home ground. Both armed with their own power verses, the duo spits bars on how difficult it has been to get to where they are; just like how the track has gone through some hard labor. On this fresh track, Hunny and Radio speaks for the ordinary working heroes, and how they struggle to make a living.“It’s not a flashy song saying ‘Look at what I have, look at how much money I make.’ but it’s more about ‘Look, I’m here, you’re here. Let’s all get money together.” Hunny expresses. She adds “I’m all about chasing happiness and loving what I do for work, but realistically, money matters and we gotta get it.””I feel like we’re both artists on the rise and we’re beyond just chasing fame - we also have to get the money to support our dreams.” - Radio3000

New Music | Lyric Video | Cash Cash - All My Love ft. Conor Maynard : aforadio.com

DJ/producer/multi-instrumentalist trio Cash Cash returns with another collaboration on "All My Love" featuring UK singer-songwriter, Conor Maynard.For Cash Cash (comprised of Sam Frisch and brothers JP and Alex Makhlouf), working with Maynard came quite easily: “Making ‘All My Love’ with Conor was a very natural collaboration,” they explain. “He’s one of those singers that can just throw it down the first time and make it sound finished…so we knew it would come together easy. We attached the production with a hyped energetic feel to give some contrast to the lyrics and we’re very pleased with the way they complimented each other. The emotion in his voice really brought out the concept of the song and gave us chills when we first listened back.” Maynard had a similar experience working with the trio on the track: "When I first heard the song, I instantly knew it was something I wanted to be a part of. The Cash Cash guys absolutely killed it with the production - I remember playing it to my friends in the car for the first time and they didn't tell me to turn it off after the first ten seconds, which is always a great sign...haha. I'm excited for this song - so happy it's finally being released."
