Just in time for V-Day, Skepta has blessed us with a video for his self-produced new song “Ladies Hit Squad,” that debuted on the OVO Sound Radio show last night. The sultry clip features Skep and co-stars Harlem’s A$AP Nast and London MC D Double E chilling in a purple-lit room with a pool and a crew of beautiful women they’re intent on impressing.
Nast sings the hook with a melodic nod to “Hotline Bling” while D Double E drops his best come-ons in the opening verse, but it’s theFADER cover star who seals the deal with this very U.K. couplet: We don’t really need Netflix, I’ll give you something to watch/ And after we’re done, build a spliff and cotch.
“The way this song came together was too organic,” Skepta told The FADER over email today. “We’ve been listening to it in the ends, in the studio, in Ubers every day for months now so I’m happy it’s finally out for the world to hear.”
According to Skepta’s team, 2016 will see the release of the London grime star’s new album, Konnichiwa. Knew this was gonna be a good year.
