"Let You Go" is the second overall, and official lead single, taken from drum and bass duo Chase & Status' second studio album, No More Idols. The song features vocals from singer Mali, and was released as a digital download on 15 August 2010.

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Let You Go" was directed by thirtytwo, made up of Will Lovelace and Dylan Southern, and was released on 29 July 2010. The video features a TV talk show host, much like Jeremy Kyle, called Patrick Chase, played by British stage actor Glenn Carter. He is praised by the audience, particularly for his scathing insults about the guests on his show and his catchphrase "If you can't be good, be honest". The video then switches to Patrick Chase on a night out and we see his wild behaviour: he has sex with a woman who is not his wife while her young children are in the next room; gets drunk and buys drugs; snorts several lines of cocaine; picks up a prostitute and has sex with her while watching his TV show. We then see a fast montage of his double life: the adoration of his fans and his hedonistic other persona, including a minor car crash while driving under the influence. We also see him being a talk show host to cover up who he really is. The video ends with Patrick sitting in a make up chair, looking at a photo of his wife and children, before beginning a new show with his cheering fans surrounding him. Plan B makes a cameo appearance in the video as the drug dealer.
