Today, genre-blurring Kingston dancehall artist Projexx shares the flirtatious “Sidepiece,” his debut single on Warner Records. The rising Jamaican singer’s playboy personality takes over as he spends a secret weekend away with a lover in the RD Studios-directed video. Listen HERE and watch HERE.
Projexx’s smooth vocals will make you miss late nights at the club. “You badder dan the girl wha star blues,” he whispers. “Mi nuh choose, ‘cause mi can’t lose ya.” The production is bright, indebted to the dancehall’s bounce but folding in gleaming global pop sounds, too, from breezy Afrobeats to sensual R&B. The video starts similarly lightheartedly. Everything seems good for Projexx and his mistress—they even invite a third to come down to their coastal getaway. The ending seems to signal future drama for our hero, but for now he’s just basking in the moment.
