Niko B Hits Back With Yet Another Head-Bopper Entitled ‘International Baby’
8 Feb 2021
Mike Skinner and Lily Allen’s musical love child, Niko B, has arrived to feed his hungry fanbase with yet another nonchalantly witty jingle, entitled International Baby.
The Trey McNair-produced single, offers a contemporary funky-feel which acts as perfect foundation for Niko B’s undeniably comical, creative and relatable rhymes to slide atop. “International Baby” launched alongside a Lucy Hickling-directed visual, shot in Niko’s hometown of Newport Parnell that shows the rapper fulfilling a lifelong ambition of riding a horse, playing around in an empty pool and handing out his personally designed toothbrush merch – a cheeky shameless plug if you ever did see one. Mirroring his lyrical themes, the music video combines the average aspects of life with the unorthodox. This can be seen through a cameo from “Pasta King”, his stint as a lifeguard eating from a bag full of croissants and naturally, opening the video smoking a “Twix”.
Speaking on the release, Niko B said:
“I wanted to make a song that you could bop around to while standing on your kitchen table, Trey McNair sent me the beat and it was PERFECT. In the lyrics I speak about loads of things personal to me and also things that regular kids my age could relate to for example pasta king, how expensive clothes are, I even have a lyric about Butlins in this song. When I get married I’ll probably sprint down the aisle to this song.”
