The Streets - "OMG"


The wait is almost over. Mike Skinner's forthcoming "final" record as The Streets comes out in a month. In the meanwhile, the prolific songwriter has been releasing song after song in anticipation, most recently premiering “OMG” on Zane Lowe's popular show on BBC Radio 1. The song is indicative of the ongoing Facebook age, Skinner singing: “In a relationship, your status had changed....the words on the screen.” It's assuredly the most radio friendly pop anthem he's released thus far, housing a beat that starts slow, and is intensified during the chorus. Computers And Blues comes out February 7th; the end of an era comes on April 18th when the “OMG” single sees its official release.
