Loyle Carner & Jordan Rakei – ‘Ottolenghi’
Hop on a train from Tower Bridge to South Croydon and you’ll find yourself in this delight’s back garden. Arriving with his first single since 2017’s Yesterday’s Gone, Loyle Carner offers a treat for the ears with ‘Ottolenghi’ alongside antipodean crooner Jordan Rakei.
An ode to the titular celebrity chef, Carner also takes the opportunity to declare his love for the superior public transport that is the train. “Yo, we only caught the train cause you know I hate the bus”, he utters on the beat-heavy track. As always, Carner tells us a story, with Rakei’s delectable chorus successfully carrying it through.
