Skepta reigns supreme and commands us all to dance, with his new single ‘Make Peace Not War’, which incorporates the electrifying hook of “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)” by C+C Music Factory featuring the vocals from legendary soul singer Martha Walsh of The Weather Girls. ‘Make Peace Not War’ is the follow up to Skepta’s New Years Day release ‘Hold On’ taken from his forthcoming album ‘The Honeymoon’ due out summer 2012.
A high-energy infectious party jam, Skepta’s fast flow and upbeat energy drives the track, while the thunderous vocals of Martha Walsh implore the listener join the party like an edict being passed from on high. Recently premiered on Mistajam’s show, the new single is gearing up nicely, with the video due for release next week!
