Hidden Gem: Charles Hamilton feat Rita Ora “New York Raining”

Sammy Younan

Girth Radio Presents…

Heard this track on Sirius and was engaged; easily digestible non-threatening pop with hip hop flourishes. Reminds me of Estelle’s American Boy.

New York Raining can be found on the Empire soundtrack…I don’t watch Empire but soundtrack seems decent. Wonder if there are any additional Hidden Gems on that soundtrack?

Fun Facts

  • Hamilton is the cousin of fellow rapper MC Lyte.
  • Charles is from New York City…Rita’s from UK
  • From Empire: Original Soundtrack from Season 1
