Save a few glorious exceptions, I'm not a big fan of intros in songs. Not even in R&B and hip hop, where some considerate producers have kindly started to export them into whole separate tracks in the early 1990s already. However, only yesterday Starrene Rhett introduced new British artist MYM (short for her first name Maryam). At 23, she managed to become the first female her producers Double AK featured, so hooray for that! If you like the clip below, listen to more of Maryam's story in this video, where she also performs her first single Hold Me Down unplugged.
To skip the intro here, just fast forward to around a minute - shortly thereafter, the beat sets in.
