TINIE Teams Up With Latin American Superstars Sofia Reyes & Farina On Huge Anthem “Whoppa”
3 Jul 2020
Tinie turns up the heat with a new single and celebratory visual for Whoppa.
Teaming up with Mexican popstar Sofia Reyes and Columbian artist Farina for a track that channels festival spirit for the ’lost summer’ of 2020, Whoppa is a playful, high-energy track that’ll transport listeners to warmer climes. Bringing the three high-octane artists together with incredible results, the vibrant video was filmed in the balmy streets of Mexico City and was directed by Meji Alabi and produced by Black Dog Films.
Commenting on the single, Tinie said; “Coming from a small council estate in South London I’ve always had the ambition to make World music. I’ve expressed this on similar sounds like ‘Mamacita’ with Wiz Kid, and three albums in, I’ve finally got the opportunity to work with incredible artists like Sofia and Farina. Something about Latin and Afro-Latin culture resonates with me, maybe the vibrancy, dance, and musicality of it reminds me of what I love about my own culture. And this time around it’s all about doing and celebrating what I love.”
