South London’s very own Sneakbo releases the video for his new single ‘Too Cool (Right Here)‘ featuring Nyla. The video was premiered yesterday via NOISEY.
Produced by iLL BLU, ‘Too Cool’ is the first major label release for Sneakbo who recently inked a deal with Since ‘93/Virgin EMI. The track is based on a classic dancehall riddim called Bookshelf, which has enjoyed previous success from the likes of Sean Paul and Beenie Man.
“What I love about this track is that its got a good vibe and instantly makes me wanna dance. I used to play this old-school bashment hit when I was younger. Working with Nyla was a lovely experience, she’s a talented lady with a beautiful voice. Hopefully in the future we get to perform the song live together” – Sneakbo.
The track is set to be a sure fire summer anthem. Whether you are in a vibrant nightclub, or a sun-soaked beach, with Sneakbo and Nyla’s infectious lyrics layered on top of the beat, ‘Too Cool’ has all the components for a global smash.
“I really enjoyed working with Sneakbo. The song has the sample from the Bookshelf riddim, which was really big in Jamaica. When they asked me to jump on it, it was a no brainer for me being Jamaican and all. I’m really glad to be a part of it and I think it’s going be a big one for the summer” – Nyla.
Sneakbo recently delivered an electric performance at this year’s Red Bull Culture Clash where he jumped on stage as a surprise guest during Mixpak’s winning set.
