Electrofunk phenom GRiZ continues to turn heads with his energetic blend of saxophone and production, and today he’s returned with a brand new track. The new offering sees GRiZ partner with soul singer and pianist Leo Napier, who wrote the new original tune “Before I Go.” Though the song deals with the heavy subject of addiction, its an infectious groove that showcases the stripped down style of Napier with the hyped-up energy that only GRiZ can bring to the table.GRiZ describes the track in his social media post, saying: “This song is about addiction and letting go. Leo did an amazing job writing and I’m happy I was able to bring this to life. It really hits home to me. I hope you enjoy it as much as it has helped me.”Listen to the new jam below.

I lost to one of the best fighters in the world. He (Rigondeaux) is so strong and brave. Rigondeaux is a succesive boxer and i took a risk to fight him because many boxers ran away from him. I am not bothered with what people say, i’ll train hard and bounce back,” Agbeko told Joy Sports.Agbeko, a native of Ghana, was a two-time IBF bantamweight champ who made the jump from 118 pounds to 122 for the first time Saturday night.The King Kong lost his IBF and WBC Silver Bantamweight bout to Abner Mares in 2011 and has since struggled to get a shot at the International stage.
