Rapper Avelino chats to Goal.com about his love for the beautiful game, music and Manchester United as part of the leading football website’s new Goal Playlist series.
An ardent United fan, Avelino gives his thoughts on how the Red Devils have performed this season. He also touches on the pressure Jose Mourinho is under at Old Trafford, being part in the FIFA franchise and much more.
The Tottenham-born musician is charting a steady rise following an explosive 2017 which saw the release of his acclaimed debut 12-track playlist, ‘No Bulls**t’ and seminal single ‘Energy’ – which soundtracked the launch trailer for the FIFA ’18 edition of the popular video game franchise – featuring grime heavyweights Skepta and Stormzy.
He has continued to take the rap game by storm in 2018 with a plethora of stand-out singles, including his most recent single, ‘Boasy’, undeniably one of the most anticipated collaborations of the year featuring fellow breakthrough rapper NOT3S.
The 25-year old’s most recent track is a lilting, sun-soaked anthem that sees Avelino command bars with his familiar, distinguished dexterity alongside NOT3S’s buoyantly infectious chorus.
‘Boasy’ has been streamed over nine million times, and you can listen to it now on the Goal Music playlist on Spotify.
