UB40’s Ali Campbell releases Cybersmile charity single
We guarantee it’ll be stuck in your head all day!
Cyber Bully Boys is the new single from Ali Campbell, the legendary voice of UB40 reunited with Astro & Mickey, released today (9th February) and timed to coincide with tomorrow’s Safer Internet Day! All profits from the single will go to Cybersmile and we’re thrilled to be working with these guys to promote positivity online!
Ali Campbell has spoken out about cyberbullying that he has seen personally:
“The reason I wrote the song was because I witnessed my fans being bullied online. As I looked into the problem and asked my children about it, it was apparent that cyberbullying is a bigger than I realised. We’re all disgusted with this modern problem and it needs fixing.
Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey were founding members of the iconic Birmingham reggae troupe UB40, who topped the UK singles chart on three occasions and sold 70 million records as they took their smooth yet rootsy musical blend to all corners of the globe. Cyber Bully Boys is taken from Ali Campbell, Astro & Mickey’s new album Silhouette, a Top 20 hit on release last autumn!
Cybersmile founder, Scott Freeman, is enjoying working on the project:
“We are delighted that Ali, Astro and Mickey are releasing Cyber Bully Boys in aid of Cybersmile on Safer Internet Day. Such a legendary group dedicating their efforts to prevent cyberbullying is incredible! We hope that the public will really get behind the track and help to raise awareness of online abuse and its effects on the wider community; this is not just a problem that affects young people and we need to work together to change both attitudes and behaviours.”
