'Check Your Balance' ft. Tomie Boy is the first-ever release from South London's Curtis J. In a matter of weeks, the Jalen Gravesande and James Agbona directed visual has racked up an impressive 250,000+ YouTube views, marking a great start to the year for the newcomer.
Distinctive and vibrant in his style, it is clear that Curtis proudly embraces his Nigerian roots and has perfected how to carry this over into the UK music scene. 'Check Your Balance' is as loud a debut as they come and if it is anything to go by, we're in for a treat this year.
