Tough Love has been on a tear with huge string of releases. Their bouncy house sound is infectious to say the least, and their latest tune continues the trend. Premiered with Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1, “So Freakin’ Tight” is a certified dance floor destroyer. The ode-to-90s-R&B vocals jump double dutch with the steel drum and bass arrangements, and actually align to form a really nicely unified track. This UK duo shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon — you can stream and pre-order the track below in the wake of it’s world release on March 16.
