Man, I miss Lady Sovereign! She’s been off the scene since about 2009 now, but she had some awesome songs, so this one’s for SOV!

In 2005, Lady Sov released her second single, ‘9 To 5’, which gained her much popularity on certain TV channels, even though it reached only Number 33 in the UK charts. It was also taken from her debut album, ‘Public Warning’ which was released on Def Jam. The song also contains a sample from the British film, Time Bandits and went on to be remixed by the British indie band, The Ordinary Boys – which went on to reach Number 6 in the UK charts!

It was then in 2006 that Lady Sovereign released her fourth single from Public Warning‘Love Me Or Hate Me’, which was another big song for her! It was featured in the US television series’, The O.C. and Ugly Betty as well as in the video game, Need For Speed: Carbon.

The video for the song sees Sov appearing in Tetris-style blocks and acting out certain lyrics to the song.

The last song I’m featuring today, was actually the first official single release for Lady Sovereign, from her debut album Public Warning and saw her sign to Def Jam Recordings shortly after. Similarly to ‘Love Me Or Hate Me’ it too was featured on The O.C. and CSI: NY and in the video game Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition.

This song is just good, fun grime and doesn’t take itself too seriously, and that’s what makes it great!
