Ben Charles wants to seize every moment of this New Year.
He's been planning his next step for a while, stockpiling material that hits that sweet spot between vintage R&B, UK production, and a neat pop touch.
New single 'Take The Lead' is online now, and the bubbling, afrobeats influenced production underpins his finest vocal yet.
Sweet and assured, 'Take The Lead' is the sound of Ben Charles entering his own lane, making his influences connect in a fresh way.
Kirx steers the visuals, and you can check out the results below.
