Genre-blending dancehall sensation Projexx is back with a bang as he releases his latest single “Top Speed”.
The highly anticipated track which features Giggs and Marksman is a perfect hit for the summer, has already made its debut on Seani B’s show on BBC1XTRA.
“Top Speed” showcases Projexx’s unparalleled talent and delivers the infectious energy he is known for. With his dance floor-ready sound, Projexx effortlessly handles the chorus with a sly delivery while expressing the particular likes and dislikes of his love interest.
British rapper, Giggs, adds his signature firebrand energy to the track, electrifying it with clever bars and playful one-liners. The emerging star from Jamaica, Marksman, brings his unique style to wrap up the song, completing the powerful collaboration.
Speaking about the track, Projexx shares, “I wanted to produce something different and unusual, so I was in the studio experimenting with Nate and Tyree when they came up with the beat. I was freestyling until I found the first line ‘Bimma inna top speed.’ I hit up Marksman on IG and told him he’d be dope on the song, so I flew to Jamaica to shoot the video with him, and that’s when Giggs sent his verse and the rest is history.”
“Top Speed” follows Projexx’s monumental success in 2021 and 2022, where he released his last project, Queen Hill. The EP garnered significant attention with standout tracks such as “Sidepiece,” showcasing the artiste’s ability to blend genres seamlessly. His previous hit, “Bigga League,” a boundary-smashing collaboration with Bakersteez, documented his rise to prominence as the music video captured his takeover of Jamaica’s National Stadium.
With the release of “Top Speed,” Projexx sets the stage for his most promising year yet. Stay tuned for more exciting music and announcements from Projexx in 2023.
The “Top Speed” music video, directed by Jamaica native, 300K, presents a cinematic experience that showcases Projexx and his crew flaunting their fast cars and beautiful women in a style reminiscent of a major motion picture. The visually stunning video sets the stage for a breakthrough year for Projexx, as he prepares to release more exciting music in the near future.
Projexx started his musical journey at the age of 12 when he began to experiment with songwriting and production in Jamaica. He is the son of Lloyd “John John” James and the grandson of the legendary dancehall producer, Lloyd “King Jammy”.
Projexx learned the fundamentals of music by sitting in and observing his father and grandfather during their studio sessions where he would use his feverous curiosity and acute observation skills to absorb as much knowledge as possible.
