Dancehall Star Boy Boy Links With BackRoad Gee On ‘BOUNCE’

A fiery summer anthem...

Trinidad dancehall star Boy Boy unite with UK spitter BackRoad Gee on ‘BOUNCE’.

The two have unique backgrounds, working in two completely different fields. Yet the diasporic pathways run deep, affording them an incredible sense of cultural crossover.

Boy Boy hails from Trinidad, and he’s made his mark on dancehall; BackRoad Gee meanwhile picks up on aspects of grime, and UK rap more generally, itself informed by the Caribbean pulse.

Produced by Joffstar (Pa Salieu, Stefflon Don, Belly Squad) and Joe Gosling (FLO, Chris Brown, KSI), new single ‘Bounce’ is a summer sizzler, a track perfectly built for carnival season. The red-hot sonic template provides the perfect base for the two to go to war, sparring and pushing each other to greater heights.

Boy Boy says: “I’m really excited to be collaborating with BackRoad Gee on this track. He’s one of the hottest artists in the scene right now, and I knew that working with him would take my music to the next level. Joffstar’s production really brings out the best in both of us, and I can’t wait for our fans to hear what we’ve been working on…”

BackRoad Gee adds that “working with Boy Boy on this track was a no-brainer. We have a lot of respect for each other’s music, and we both bring something unique to the table. Joffstar’s production is next level, and I think that together, we’ve created something really special that our fans are going to love”.

Award-winning director Jay Parpworth (Fredo, D Block Europe, Russ Millions, Dizzee Rascal) steers the full video, which takes the two MCs to the heart of London.
