Song and singers details for the new Galaxy Duet TV commercial and ‘Moon River’ cover version.
Song Title: Moon River.
Artists/Singers: Bxnjamin & Chanele McGuinness.
Download On: iTunes.
The track featured in this brand new Galaxy Duet chocolate ad is a cover version of ‘Moon River’ by London-based hip hop musician Bxnjamin and Irish singer Chanele McGuinness.
The song is due to be released for download via iTunes on the 2nd of October, 2015. To help keep you going until then, we’ve added the official full length duet video to the bottom of this page.
The female vocalist you see and hear in the TV ad is 22-year-old singer-songwriter Chanele Mc Guinness and not Charlene Soraia, who I initially thought it may have been. Chanele comes from the town of Donegal on the west coast of Ireland and has recently released her new album, Already Gone.
Her duet partner Bxnjamin is a 22-year-old rapper, MC and producer from London, who’s previously created such tracks as ‘Stupid Jewels’ and ‘Soul Calibre’.
This is of course not the first time Moon River has provided the soundtrack to a Galaxy Chocolate advert, with the Audrey Hepburn version having now been appearing in that famous CGI commercial for a couple of years now. This fresh Duet ad was uploaded to Galaxy Chocolate’s YouTube channel on the 13th of September, 2015, featuring the slogan ‘Two flavours in perfect harmony’.
The 20-second video sees Bxnjamin and Chanele performing their unique version of Moon River in a recording studio, before treating themselves to a new Galaxy Duet Cookies and Cream chocolate bar.
