MNEK has some fun with new sound on ‘Tongue’
We had to wait a while to hear new solo material by pop star and hit producer MNEK. The 24-year-old Londoner took a little break to find out where he is at in his career after writing and producing for big stars including Madonna and Kylie Minogue. He has big plans for the coming months as he shared on social media that new single ‘Tongue’ is just the beginning. The most important goal for his new music was to have fun with his sound and that is exactly what he did here!
MNEK sometimes found himself chasing trends with upbeat electronic pop, but he decided to take matters into his own hands. ‘Tongue’ is an exquisitely produced banger with a deep beat and a smart change of pace in the chorus. As the tempo slows down slightly, MNEK starts to seductively whisper how he is trying to contain himself, but the words just have to come out: he thinks he is in love! The production and song construction is out of the box and this might make it even more hit worthy than any of his previous material. This might be the best MNEK single to date!
