From winning The Hot Press Big Break competition in 2014 to releasing his EP Show Off What You Got this time last year, Andre Bangala aka Rocstrong has become one of the most popular names in Irish hip hop and funk.
His latest track ‘Be Cool’ is the third of his monthly release project and is a lively, funky-pop tune which takes inspiration from Anderson Paak and Lupe Fiasco. It follows the success of his two previous singles ‘Vibes’ and ‘I Gotcha’, and is set to be another hit for the Dublin based musician.
The song is currently available exclusively on Soundcloud and will be released on iTunes, Spotify and all other streaming and download platforms from tomorrow, 07 July 2017.
