Marcel Somerville, aka Dr Marcel from this year’s Love Island, aka Rocky B from early ’00s hip-hop sensation Blazin’ Squad, is finally giving the people what they want – a solo single.
‘Someone’, a track written and produced by Marcel, will drop this Friday (August 11), he announced on Twitter earlier today.
Anyone else willing to bet that ‘Someone’ might refer to Marcel’s Love Island villa-mate and ‘real world’ girlfriend Gabby Allen?
Fans who can’t wait that long for a taste of Marcel’s post-Love Island tunes can hear a preview tomorrow (August 10) on his Instagram account, where he recently teased us by posting a photo of himself back in the studio.
Marcel’s been pretty busy since coming out of the villa. As well as his solo music venture, he’s releasing a book of dating advice and he’ll be doing a one-off reunion concert with Blazin’ Squad in November this year.
The group, who reunited for the Love Island: Aftersun show (sort of), will perform at KoKo in Camden on November 26. If you want to meet Marcel at the ‘Crossroads’, you can buy a ticket for the gig from tomorrow.
Marcel’s solo career seems to be the most pressing thing on his mind at the moment, however. Here’s hoping there are a few Love Island references thrown into ‘Someone’ when it debuts on iTunes later this week.
