Naira Marley has returned with his latest single, ‘Body’, accompanied by a lyric video directed by Deebo and Cashh. The track was also released as a celebration of Marley’s birthday and was produced by his frequent collaborator Niphkeys.

Marley is widely recognised as a pioneer of the Afrobashment sound and this track sees the artist combine his influences from both Lagos and Peckham, his adopted hometown, in his lyricism. The infectious instrumental complements Marley perfectly and his raw, uninhibited performance mirrors the subject matter of the song.

With over 300 million streams under his belt, Naira Marley is a superstar both in the United Kingdom and internationally. Following the release of his debut album last year, ‘God’s Timing Is The Best’, the artist looks set to continue his rapid rise with his latest single and solidify his status as a leader in his genre.
