(TORONTO, Canada – July 2019) – We’re finally putting the treacherous winter behind us in Canada and right on time, Toronto’s African and Caribbean music scenes are here with the heat! On the successful heels of his third studio album Gifted (2018), award winning Ghanaian-Canadian artist Slim Flex is featured on the new exclusive single by up-and-coming Jamaican dancehall showstopper Chuky Daan. The track ‘Summertime Flexx’ is scheduled for digital release TODAY on all streaming and digital platforms. Executive produced by Diet Monkey Entertainment Inc. and Julia Records, the single marks Chuky Daan’s commercial debut and Slim Flex’s latest collaboration project under the fast-growing independent music label of DME.
It’s been an incredible year for Slim, celebrating Gifted on stages and radio airwaves across the country and internationally. Slim truly has the ability to cross over into all cultural subgenres and now on Summertime Flexx, the Afrobeat crowd-puller’s distinct sound and collaborative versatility is at a height. In the spirit of artistic alliance to the incredible music culture out of both the Caribbean and Africa, it’s no wonder that Chuky Daan, the emerging powerhouse based in St. Ann, Jamaica and Slim’s team sought each other out for this serious collabo during the making of Chuky’s new mixtape project (currently in production).
Over fiery synths and a sweltering beat, the charismatic delivery of Chuky is at the forefront, while Slim’s chill vibe and cool hype give a solid dance track. Electric energy and pulsating rhythms have both artists carrying out all the details of the fun-filled, sexy, crazy party days and balmy nights ahead that we all can’t wait to have. ‘Summertime Flexx’ will put everyone in the mood for good times in the Sun. It’s a perfect Afro-Dancehall inspired banger to usher in a Sizzling Summer. Take a listen to this must-add party song for your Summer playlists– Summertime Flexx is sooo hot! https://soundcloud.com/user-204332843/summer-time-flexx
