The recent BBC Radio 1 mashup of Destinys Child "Say My Name/Justin Timberlake "Cry Me River" immediately shot to the top of the Hype Machine chart. The Music Ninja raved about the performance saying: "BBC Radio 1 has a rich history of coaxing unexpected cover songs from the artists that stop by. Californian buzz band, The Neighbourhood, continued the tradition.""Its a silky smooth and down tempo take on the 2000s radio pop hits and we sure cant help but love the darker, "playin it cool" vibes. These cats know whats up."
