Skeng Delivers New Song “London” With Gritty Visual
Skeng has shot a new hit video in London for his single of the same name.
From the first beat heard, it’s obvious that the beat was hypnotic enough to have you shaking your head before you even realize you’re moving. Once again, dancehall artist Skeng has been weaving his musical magic on his fans and listeners alike by dropping the track “London” on Friday, April 22, and already there is a strong buzz that has people talking.
The video is all about dressing well and being stylish, like a high-born British gentleman with tailored suits and designer wristwatches. Wouldn’t an artist want a helicopter posed as a backdrop for those expensive dramatic effects they so badly need? Shot in the UK, the song is an ode to the Homeland and all it has to offer.
Trending at the twelfth position on YouTube, the track has already racked up nearly 250,000 views in less than twelve hours and is climbing steadily as the song is catchy enough to snooze, something fans have been doing since its release.
Produced by Ditruth and DropTop Records, “London” has a simple yet highly effective flow that works brilliantly and resonates with listeners enthralled first by its Shacko DiTruth-composed beats and then by the lyrics, which Skeng seamlessly delivers, paying homage to the British capital.
Spitting out how a boy from Spanish Town in Jamaica intends to take over London and make it his own while adopting some of its customs and in turn influencing it, Skeng says: “ Hello buddy! A Spanish man deh inna u place/ We nuh cuss ‘n we nuh trace/ Get right to di pace. From us deh inna race / Tell u none a dem nuh safe / lef a tele inna u face. Don Don inna di London don (repeat)/ one order more evil clan man/ Skeng don one don/ Spain Town gunman. N if you feel like seh mi nuh do some action / double check good man / before you get a bad shot. My style is a kick like Vandam / Birmingham, London, England, Brampton, you know?
The seedy gang is definitely feeling its uniqueness and declared it a certified hit before summer. One fan shared, “This is literally a banger! No matter how many times I listen, I never get bored! This is going to ruin the summer. Skeng is a blessed artist, trust me,” while another chimed in, “Mr. Skeng Don never disappoints his fans and is back with another hit song like he never left. Always consistent and on point with his catchy lyrics, punchline and his puns. Keep up the great work my artist.
