Jason Fubar and Lee Watson, who have been hosting weekly digital isolation sessions for music lovers and home revellers in lockdown have collaborated with chart hitter, singer and songwriter Daniel Pearce, who also lent his vocals to UK number one single "Nobody to Love"from DJs Sigma.

Lee said the track was an ambition for the pair at the start of lockdown and they were excited to share the project with Daniel, who has worked with many artists, including Dizee Rascal and shares their music publishers Notting Hill Music.

Lee said: "It has been a bit of a creative ambition of ours for a while and we set about it at the beginning of lockdown, each of us in the studio, sharing ideas.

"We wrote it about mental health which was before everything going on at the minute but then fed in to that perfectly. It's three very simple words which pretty much sums up the start of every conversation for everyone right now. We're so proud of it and the response has been amazing.

"We have hit the main UK I-Tunes chart, which is just fantastic."

High Wycombe born Wade, who switched from Premiership Rugby to play American football as a running back for the Buffalo Bills in the NFL, is a friend of Daniel and shared the track and a self-made video on Instagram earlier this week, in light of American protests.

He posted to his 114,000 followers: "My friend @danielpearcemusic wrote this great song. I meant to post this video at the start of the global lockdown but the lyrics are actually more relevant now."

See Christian Wade's post here: track is already garnering a huge response online and is now sat at number seven in the I-Tunes dance chart.

Lee added: " Jason and I are so happy with the response. Perfect Havoc is one of the UK's hottest labels right now, having Top10 Chart hits so we are with the best team to be releasing our music."
