After the last year of chart hits, headline performances, award winning and accolade reaping, Raghav kicks into 2005 with an uptempo, dirtied down, raunchy ragga dancehall tune, inspired by the beaches of Jamaica via the cold, icehockey obsessed streets of Calgary Canada and the tunesmithery of Raghav.
Raghav demonstrates again his musical sorcery on a track featuring a potent blend of ragga rhythm and rhymes, asian beats and bollywood strings all elegantly stitched together by his crystal pure vocal.
Raghav delivers an infectious new song over one of the most famous Dance Hall rhythms of all time originally brought to fame by Chaka Demus & Pliers 90s Worldwide hit ‘Murder She Wrote’. Not wishing to dilute any of the original vibe, Raghav enlisted the originators of this classic piece of Ragga history, the legendary Dancehall dons Sly & Robbie, to re-produce his new single. Raghav is aided and abetted on the track by the UK’s premier Dancehall MCs Frankey Maxx and former 2Play compadre, Jucxi D.
Former S Club star Rachel Stevens, Raghav, Blazin’ Squad, former Savage Garden singer Darren Hayes, Phixx, Clea, V and more recently performed at the Pulse Party In The Park in Bingley, West Yorks last Saturday.

Raghav is gearing up to release his second solo single at the end of August titled Let’s Work It Out. It will be the fourth single featuring him since he arrived on the British scene this year. The other two singles were with producer 2Play.
Let’s Work It Out marks the last single before he releases his debut album out on September 6 this year. It was initially due for July but the date was postponed, most likely to ensure closeness to the release of the album, entitled Storyteller.
The infectious Let’s Work It Out features UK rapper Jahzel also known as Solid Rock and is produced by Mushtaq. Remixes come from well known producers Sly & Robbie and DJ Assad & Jo Jo Yannik.
The video for the single stars British actress, the beautiful Preeya Kalidas. It will be out on August 28 so make sure you guys get it.
Raghav’s debut solo single, the brilliant Can’t Get Enough entered the British charts at number 8 earlier this year, the same spot as the last collaboration single with 2Play It Can’t Be Right, featuring Naila Boss. His first single with 2Play So Confused went as high as number 4 on the British charts.
