The New Year has given us a slew of hot new Dancehall videos / tracks. These include releases by popular artists like Protoje, Bounty Killer, Popcaan, TeeJay, Lee Sparta, and the ever popular Kabaka Pyramid.
First up is the long awaited video for the track Switch it Up which features artists Protoje and Koffee Bears. This collaboration features the themes of loyalty, success, and sending out good energy, and is taken for Protoje’s new album In Search of Lost Time. Set in a casino, this video also features cameos by Lila Ike, Sevana, Jaz Elise, Royal Blu, and Jesse Royal.
Next up we have the legendary Bounty Killer who has teamed up with Christopher Martin on a track called No Gun Rise. This track is an impassioned call to end gun violence and contrasts images of gravestones with happy summers. Another interesting video comes from Popcaan. It’s called Smoked Out Freestyle and features Bakersteez. This freestyle track demonstrates Popcaan lyrical skills, and with a title like Smoked Out it’s easy to guess the subject matter.
Fourth on our list is a new release from TeeJay and Lee Sparta. In this track the artists sing about the struggle of raising yourself up in life, and the difficultly and struggle this involves – and well as the jealously which comes from other people. It’s a powerful track that will put you in mind to work on your own success.
Finally we have Kabaka Pyramid’s Believe, a soulful number where he outlines the power of self-belief, and it’s importance in making something of yourself.
