Richard Blackwood - Mama (Who Da Man?)The 'British Will Smith' (sick of that comparison yet?) releases his debut single, a rap/R&B flavoured cover of his uncle Junior's 80s hit. You can see where the Will Smith comparisons come from (they're both black, they rap, er...) but with remixes by Stargate, this song looks set to provide a future for Mr Blackwood when his TV career dries up.

The debut single from this popular comedian, MTV presenter and now rapper is a sure-fire hit. Hardly competition to the likes of Dr. Dre, but Blackwood is tipped as the UK equivalent of Will Smith. Sure, it's tacky at times with references to Richard's other projects, but it captures his TV persona down to a T. His already huge fanbase will make this a hit, but how will the rest of the nation react?
