Man’s Not Hot was the British breakout track of 2017, from British comedian Michael Dapaah performing as the character Big Shaq. It hit no 3 in the UK charts, went gold and saw over 210 million views on YouTube.
Well, it may be about to get a few more. At the Black Panther premiere at Hammersmith, London last night, they had DJs performing in the cinema before the movie began. And with the cast and crew lined up along the right side of the auditorium waiting to go on stage, DJ Semtex played Man’s Not Hot. And everyone, frankly, got down to it. But notably, as seen in this exclusive video for Bleeding Cool, Daniel Kaluuya and Letitia Wright have all the lyrics down pat. Pat pat pat!
Could this be what it takes for Man’s Not Hot to break the USA properly?
Here’s the video.
And the session that kicked it off…
