No, Michael O’s latest single it isn’t a cover of Rihanna’s iconic hit. Umbrella is a sweetly styled hit inspired by African beats which attacks romanticism in one of the aurally flavoursome ways that you could possibly devour. Summer may nearly be over, but with sun-soaked, high-vibe beats such as Umbrella you’ll get all of the viscerally resonant warmth that will ever possibly need. The beat is accessibly simplistic and stripped back to let the sentimentality behind the track to truly shine through. With such a charismatic style it’s easy to see why urban beats fans have fallen under the adoration of Umbrella, as love songs go, you really couldn’t ask for more.
You can check out the video to Michael O’s latest single Umbrella which was released July 20th for yourselves on YouTube now and find out for yourselves why Umbrella has already collectively received over 85,000 streams.
