Charley says VIDEO! D1ce – BoyToy

May 21, 2010

Belgium’s bad boy of R&B is back!

Redwan El Bakkali was one of the singles on Flemish Temptation Island 2009. He had hoped the show would launch him as a popstar, but a stay in prison nipped his music career as D1ce in the bud.

There is a debut song called ‘Hold Up‘ online though. There’s several versions and videos out there, but my favourite is the one below. If I remember correctly it’s produced by Serge Ramaekers.

A year later, D1ce is back with ‘BoyToy‘. The video was uploaded a couple of hours ago and it’s good to see a proper slick R&B video coming out of Flanders. We may be responsible for the likes of Hadise and Leki, but the genre still has a lot of catching up to do here.

The song itself fits nicely into the current pop influenced R&B that’s popular around the world these days. I particularly like the start of the chorus which has Redwan pleading “I can be your boytoy, unwrap me in your toy store…”
