Avelino drops fan-favourite ‘U Can Stand Up’ ft. Dave


Avelino drops ‘U Can Stand Up’, featuring fellow lyricist and rap heavyweight, Dave, and taken from his acclaimed debut 12-track playlist, ‘No Bullshit’ – and you can listen to it now on the Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.

Set against the backdrop of London’s Barbican Estate, the video – directed by Kaylum Dennis (Stormzy, J Hus, Lady Leshurr, Not3s, Mo Stack) – follows Avelino as he delivers a fiery, impassioned performance direct to-camera with his trademark flow.

Fresh from being asked to join Dave on his 10-date ‘Game Over’ UK tour at the end of 2017, that culminated in two sold-out dates at London’s KOKO; Avelino continues to affirm his status as one the finest, genuine and versatile MC’s to grace the scene.

His deserved, unburdened belief in his ability, has seen the prolific 24-year-old gain accolades from peers, media and fans alike, including most recently VEVO’s Artist to Watch for 2018 and a nomination for ‘Best Mixtape’ for ‘No Bullshit’, at this year’s NME Awards.

‘U Can Stand Up’ – which is also a new addition to the Fantasy Premier League and Soccer AM: New Music playlists – comes hot-on-the-heels of his standout single ‘1 In A Million‘, which recently amassed over 1 million streams on Spotify alongside support from BBC Radio 1 playlist.

Avelino will perform his first live date of 2018 to a sold-out show at London’s Jazz Café on February 8, as part of Annie Mac’s AMP: Sounds residency, alongside Tom Grennan and Mo Stack.
