Chipmunk's Oopsy Daisy is out October 5th

Chipmunk's Oopsy Daisy is out October 5th


On Thursday the 27th of August Chipmunk, one of the UK’s most exciting and fresh Urban artists, came down to the Orange RockCorps Community Youth Limited GIVE project in Deptford to get stuck in helping volunteers paint a recording studio, and to bosh out a bit of an impromptu performance for the Orange RockCorps massive.

At just 18 years of age, and having  just received his A-level results, Chipmunk has already achieved so much, including scooping the Best Newcomer Award at the 2008 MOBO Awards, collaborations with Ironik and Tinchy Stryder, and a hit single, Diamond Rings, which peaked at number 6 in the UK charts. However, it could just be that latest single Oopsy Daisy, due for release in early October, from debut album I Am Chipmunk (release date October 12th), will be the track that propels Chip into megastardom in the UK Urban / Pop scene.

With a banging 2/4 Dance beat, a simple piano chord ostinato, retro pop-hook synth lines, a potentially massive chorus hook, and a mellow and sombre tone dealing with relationship issues, Oopsy Daisy is the perfect follow up to the massive Diamond Rings. Catchy, poignant, lyrically brilliant and full of signature cheeky Chipmunk charm, Ooopsy Daisy is another rung on one hell of a career ladder for this rising star.

Chipmunk is hitting the festival circuit hard this summer, and will be touring with Tinchy Stryder and Robot Boy in September so check him out at a venue near you.
