Get ready to immerse yourself in the perfect blend of Afropop, dancehall, and summer vibes with the unveiling of the new track, ‘Taxi Man.’
This musical masterpiece is a collaboration of some of the most notable names in the industry: afropop sensation Camidoh, who recently received a BET Award nomination; Vybz Kartel, the iconic figure in Jamaican dancehall; and UK’s rising star, Miss LaFamilia. They’ve teamed up with the award-winning DJ and producer, DJ Lara Fraser, to gift the music world with this remarkable tune.
The genius behind the production of ‘Taxi Man’ is the combined talent of UK’s renowned Toddla T, who has previously worked with big names like Stormzy, Little Simz, and Idris Elba, and the award-winning Ghanaian maestro, Streetbeatz, known for his association with artists like Stonebwoy, Fuse ODG, and Sarkodie. The track boasts of a unique dancehall and afrobeats fusion that promises to keep the summer spirit alive and buzzing.
Listeners will be treated to Camidoh‘s signature R&B and afrobeats rhythms, perfectly complemented by Miss LaFamilia’s harmonious vocals. At the heart of it all, Vybz Kartel brings his unmatched style, cementing his legendary status. Accompanying this auditory delight is a captivating portrait-style music video, capturing a day with Camidoh, Miss LaFamilia, and DJ Lara Fraser, filmed by the upcoming filmmaker Amane Akbaraly at the famous Zap Studios in London’s Camberwell.
Vybz Kartel, already celebrated for tracks like ‘Dull Colour‘ and ‘Come Sit Down‘, is making waves this summer. Miss LaFamilia isn’t far behind with her recent potential UK summer hit, ‘Harder.’ Meanwhile, Camidoh has been soaring high, gaining nominations from the BET Awards and The Headies and receiving acclaim for his debut project L.I.T.A.
