You know these voices already: it’s another dancehall A-list get-together, discussing life as a rockstar, plus the ubiquitous modified clave. It’s an easy groove, used as a backdrop for spitting all kinds of themes - the money, the lifestyle, and the music. The holy trinity, if you will.

The body rhythm, you got to get with it. Wind up your body and spin it.

With the lead vocals split out between these four distinct personalities, we get a party-vibe handoff, moving from the patois to the street feel, mixing the Hackney brogue with that island-tropical sound. With a hint of samba-reggae from that tamborim on top of the beat, it’s just a good time, and a celebration of life. Boasty, from top heavyweights Sean Paul, Stefflon Don, Wiley, and Idris Elba, is on track to be the next ragga hit on dance-floors from London to Kingston.

Hackney titans Wiley, Stefflon Don and the unrivaled don of dancehall, Sean Paul have joined forces on what promises to be one of 2019’s biggest smash collaborations, ‘Boasty’. This song is featured on our Groovy Summer playlist.
