Pa Salieu has released a new single and video, ‘My Family (feat. Backroad Gee)’.
The Coventry, UK-based, Gambia-raised MC won over tastemakers from Benji B to Annie Mac when he exploded onto the scene in 2019 with tracks like ‘Dem A Lie’ and ‘Frontline’. This latest packs more low slung swagger and hypnotic locked loops, and features rhymes and lines from London rapper Backroad Gee, who invited Salieu to appear on his own track, ‘Party Popper’, earlier this year.
‘My Family’ comes with a fittingly moody video, directed by Femi Ladi.
