Frank Addai Covers Naughty Boy’s Running (Lose It All)

Frank Addai reworks Naughty Boy’s Beyonce and Arrow Benjamin collaboration “Running (Lose It All)” into a smoother R&B version. The East London musician worked with producer/composer Ian Green (Michael Jackson, Madonna) on the cover and said this about the record:

“It speaks to where I’m at in life and in my musical journey right now. I’ve tried hard to supress the desire to do music as a career, because I convinced myself that other career interest were more worthwhile. However, towards the back end of last year, I came to a final conclusion, that music is what I should be doing.”

Addai is working with Green on his debut album to follow-up his 2013 The Intro EP.
