This takes me right back to the live show. It seriously doesn't get any better than this! Actually, it probably does because each release Baker Boy brings is packed full of fire. It's no surprise anymore! Danzal you are the magic. And Dallas - you are incredible.

Long time collaborators Dallas and Danzel coming together closer than ever on this behemoth. Having seen this one live, let me tell you, it's a total bumper. Featuring one of my favourite lyrics "If you don't wanna close the gap then close your yap"
