Serena Kern turns to grime for new single ‘Drop Top’ ft. Ms Banks

Indian singer-songwriter, Serena Kern has strayed from her early roots in music for her new single ‘Drop Top’ which sees her head down an increasingly urban route, with help from underground artist and collaborator, Ms Banks.

The new single, ‘Drop Top’, produced by Ayo Beatz, also employs the talents of underground rapper Ms Banks, a frequent collaborator with big artists such as Tinie Tempah and JME, who put her stamp on the rap scene after appearing on Radio 1Xtra’s ‘Fire in the Booth’ show with Charlie Sloth. The video for ‘Drop Top’ also features a cameo from independent artist and founder of State of Mind Records, Loick Essien.

Serena commented that: ‘The track is very different from what I’ve done before. Chris, from Music Matters, played the beat of Drop Top to me and said it would sound amazing with my vocals. We recorded the track and everything just clicked. Ms Banks then decided to jump on it too, adding an extra edge!

Taking inspiration from the likes of Rihanna, Sia and Clean Bandit, Serena’s music appeals to a wide audience due to its encapsulating crossover style. Although she has taken a new direction with her music, her fans certainly won’t be alienated by the new urban sound, which still features Serena’s signature vocals and sultry style.
