Back in April Beach Boii took his latest single to a whole new level, with a sizzling “2 Cold (Remix)” featuring Dancehall artiste, Vybz Kartel. Originally dropped in January this remix produced by Reuben Isaac shows what a good collaboration can achieve.

For Beach Boii, the collaboration was quite literally, a dream come true.

“Vybz Kartel is one of my favorite artists of all time; when I first started doing music, I always dreamed of doing a song with the Worl’ Boss. We made the right music and kept it pushing then like magic, it happened,” the artiste explained about the collaboration.

The track has a ‘pop meets afro bounce’ sound, with a hint of hip hop/ rap and with the addition of Vybz Kartel, it gives listeners something fresh, versatile and uncommon from the artiste. Since its release, the track has hit the charts in several countries since its release and is garnering impressive views so far on YouTube.

Growing up in Brooklyn, New York, Beach Boii grew up around Caribbean influences, with a Jamaican mother and a Vincentian father. With that, his interest in Dancehall/ Reggae peaked.

The sound of Reggae is widely recognised because of its acoustically formed bass and drum downbeat, and its offbeat rhythm section. With such a diversity in style it is also considered complex enough to attract progressively minded musicians. A music that has a strong association with dance covering a variety of styles while also offering a background beat for those sharing Biblical chants of Zion. It is hard to ignore Reggae’s influence and how it interacts with our day-to-day lives. Shared as background music for films and advertising driving its heavy bass lines literally felt wherever rock and pop are played. Reggae has an affinity with mainstream British pop; recognised within the hip-hop culture and considered “cool” by those with no connection to Jamaica. As lovers of reggae my aim is to build a community of reggae followers that can share thoughts, news, events as listeners, artists, DJ’s and hosts.
