Quincy has teamed up with reggaeton legend Shaggy and Africa’s Patoranking for the remix of his dancehall hit song “Aye Yo”
The music video sees the trio playing it safe and adhering to today’s social distancing standards by coordinating and hosting a “digital” party via live streaming from various locations around the world.
Though Quincy is in the United States, Shaggy is in Jamaica, and Patoranking is in Nigeria, they’re not letting a global pandemic stop them from being able to party together.
Quincy spoke on the significance of uniting various voices across the globe to complete his vision for the song and video, saying via press release: “As a new artist, I wanted to execute a different aspect of a REMIX, not just to release a new version for the life of the song, but for our fans to see why this alliance was key in highlighting the merge of sounds and visuals. . For me, creating the video was like taking two steps back, as all three of us are in different parts of the world – US, Jamaica and Nigeria.”
He continued: “It’s about uniting people in a new age. I also wanted to highlight what is happening in Nigeria (SARS, a scandal involving Nigeria’s Special Anti-Robbery Squad), and supporting Patoranking’s movement there. I am also grateful for Shaggy, as his music brings light and rhythm to so many around the world. With this song and video, I’m in really good company.”
“Aye Yo” (Remix) follows the release of the original track, which dropped back in August.
