Rap star Skepta surprises listeners with new single 'Nirvana', featuring international superstar J Balvin.
This collaboration proves why Skepta is a cut above the rest. Skepta is one of few rappers that are able to link up with any artist and hold his own, and this track with J Balvin shows that.
'Nirvana' begins with Skepta laying down a smooth and memorable chorus over a clean Jae5 production. The North London rapper switches between Spanish and English as he delivers a wave-ridden hook. Verses throughout the track are equally as polished as Skeppy delivers hard-hitting bars filled with clever punchlines.
J Balvin rides the beat effortlessy offering a slight melodious flow that is both captivating and wavey.
Hollywood-styled visuals live up to the star-studded nature of the track. The video is a whole movie and shows us a suited and booted Skepta in a country mansion surrounded by maids. In other scenes, J Balvin is tied-up whilst Skepta wakes up in a basement. It is safe to say, there is a lot happening in the video, adding extra entertainment value.
Skepta and J Balvin is a linkup we never knew we needed, but glad we received. Both artists brought their A-game on ‘Nirvana’ ensuring this is a track where you can turn up and enjoy yourself.
