BBC Radio 1Xtra's Hot 4 2011: Talay Riley - Money Rules Everything
Talay Riley has been singled out for the mainstream in 2011 by 1Xtra DJs and staff. As a boy growing up in East London, music was always around him, and he was first exposed to the pop music of the early 1990s by his older brother and sister. He was signed by Jive Records while studying for a university degree in Law and Business and worked with his friend and producer Inflo 1st and H-Money, part of Darkchild Productions in LA (Destiny’s Child and Lady Gaga) on his debut album. Talay went to school with Tinchy Stryder, sang on the Chipmunk single Look For Me and recently toured with N-Dubz. His recent singles Humanoid and Sergeant Smash were both playlisted on 1Xtra in 2010.
