Taking over from AJ Tracey as host of Agenda is none other than Ms Banks. For four shows she is taking over Apple Music’s Agenda radio show and every week she will be playing the biggest and best tracks from the playlist, celebrating her favourite UK legends and chatting with the best of British talent. In the first episode Ms Banks catches up with North London-born artist Tion Wayne about life in lockdown and his new track ‘I Dunno’. Ms Banks also pays homage to UK legends Ms Dynamite and D Block Europe.
Agenda on Apple Music’s Beats 1 brings Apple Music's Agenda playlist to life. It represents the authentic voices in the UK scene, without forgetting international rap, R&B and Afrobeats. Ms Banks follows AJ Tracey, who hosted the show for four episodes and interviewed guests including Aitch, Not3s, Yung Fume and MoStack.
Tion Wayne on life in lockdown…
'I’ve just been writing a lot of music. Obviously, I’ve just released something but I’ve been writing a lot of music outside of that. Promoting my tunes. I’m still working. Working from home, you know. I’ve been relaxing and getting the break that I needed. And then working out a little bit and writing music, you feel me?'
Tion Wayne on releasing ‘I Dunno’...
'I just appreciate the love. I’m happy to be where I am. Before I released it, I was excited for it to come out and I’m just glad that the people felt how I felt about it.'
