After a decade of separation – and consequently a sharp drop in the quality of British hip hop – Love Island’s Marcel Somerville has finally reunited the whole of Blazin’ Squad.
All ten members of the Squad met up for reunion drinks…
And, yes, we are going to list the names of every band member, because they’re just too good not to.
Marcel AKA Rocky B AKA Plat’num is joined by Kenzie, Ollie ‘Freek’ Georgiou, Chris ‘Melo-d’ McKeckney, Stuart ‘Reepa’ Baker, Lee ‘Krazy’ Bailey, Sam ‘Spike-e’ Foulkes, James ‘Flava’ Murray, Tom ‘Tommy-B’ Beasley and Mustafa ‘Strider’ Omer.
And if that hasn’t already brightened up your morning, then you should know that the Squad are thinking about recording some new music.
Streams of their hits – including Crossroads, of course – went up 2,500% on Spotify when Marcel joined the villa and told anyone who’d listen that he was a member of the Squad.
And now they’re booked to perform at Now That’s A Festival on 12th August. Blue, B*Witched and S Club are also on the bill.
Blazin’ Squad member Ollie ‘Freek’ Georgiou recently told Metro that a full on reunion tour could be on the cards.
Meanwhile, Love Island winner Kem Cetinay has been hitting up Stormzy for a collaboration.
