On the new summer hit, Jamaican dancehall superstar Konshens and Nigerian afrobeat singer Davido, connect to serve fans with a hot summer jam titled ‘BOOM BANG’ which is currently out now on all digital stores. Ricky Blaze and Jonny Blaze co-produced the track, which premiered via Rolling Stone, and is set to appear on Konshens’ forthcoming album, Red Reign.
The splendid visuals for “Boom Bang” was premiered on Complex, and was directed by Jamaican dancehall star Demarco in Atlanta. “We couldn’t do Jamaica, we couldn’t do Nigeria, so we met at the crossroads,” Konshens says of Atlanta, a major hub for both the Jamaican and Nigerian diaspora. “There is no storyline to the video, it’s just a fun vibe and that’s what we want going into the summer. The past year has been way too serious, so we’re trying to loosen things up now.”
known for smash hits like “Bruk Off Yuh Back” and “Gal a Bubble”, Konshens has largely represented the dancehall genre over the past years with huge collaborations with artists like Nipsey Hussle, Cardi B, Doja Cat, The Chainsmokers, Nicky Jam and Rick Ross to his credit, this is to name a few.
He can also be heard on the freshly released Fast and furious 9: The Furious Saga soundtrack, on the track “Real” alongside Justin Quiles and Dalex. Davido is one of the most influential artists in Africa, a global superstar known for making some of afrobeats’ most wide-reaching and immediately identifiable tracks, such as “Fall,” “If” and 2020’s “Fem.”
“Boom Bang” follows the Spice and Rvssian collab “Pay For It” and the introspective “Can’t Stay Sober” as Konshens rolls out Red Reign, anticipated for release later this year through Ineffable Records. The album marks Konshens’ first release through the label arm of the multi-faceted Oakland-based music company Ineffable Music Group.
