It’s March 8th, and that means UK rapper Elson Barbosa is officially dropping his new single and music video “Never Sleep”. He chose this date to honor the birthday of his friend and producer, Lory Beatz, whom Barbosa will be working with in the near future. Barbosa allowed us to preview his single on DimiHub last week, and now the entire track is here, and it is incredible. The song is not only an almost certain hit, Barbosa allows his creativity to truly show in the production of the lyrics and the video.

Barbosa is truly becoming an international rapper. His sound and style could translate to any fan of hip-hop across the globe. With an already strong fan base, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Barbosa continue to grow on an international scale with this track. From Peterborough to the rest of the world, Barbosa will certainly have the chance to become a household name in hip-hop throughout the world, including the United States.
Barbosa still has tons of work to do, but he knows that. Elson will continue to do what he has been doing since age 14, and that’s write lyrics that lead to club bangers and hit songs. “Never Sleep” will certainly help push Barbosa to even greater heights than he’s already hit, but this won’t make him complacent.
Elson Barbosa is hungry and talented, a scary combination for anyone trying to upstage the UK rapper. The track “Never Sleep” is available on iTunes for purchase and Apple Music for streaming.
