Not a lot is known about Hudson East, but luckily there are only two things you need to really know about the up-and-coming R&B artist from London.

First, his debut EP Eastway is fire. Released last year, it runs for just 38 minutes and features a murderers' row of alternative-R&B producers, including Syk Sense (Drake, Bryson Tiller), OZ (Travis $cott, Lil Durk, Little Simz) and FrancisGotHeat (Roy Wood$) amongst others. Basically – 'it bumps in the whip'.

Second, East could be a future OVO prospect. As the saying goes, where there's smoke, there's Drake, and the 21-year-old singer-songwriter has already drawn comparisons to PartyNextDoor and the 6 God himself for his brooding trap-soul melodies. On the track 'Intro', East also gives a shout out to his ones from the "6 side, show me more love than over this side.: Is East headed for an OVO co-sign? Decide for yourself.

Ahead of the May 19th release of his highly-anticipated project East Ave, the North London artist gives us 'Fuego' and it's the perfect introduction to East's brand of dark, aggressive R&B.

Check out standout tracks 'M.I.T.M', 'Woman's Intuition' and 'Dark Knight (Remix)' off East's breakthrough EP Eastway out now on iTunes and Spotify.
