Chronixx video for single "Likes" from his forthcoming debut album Chronology.
Jamaica's highly-touted musician Chronixx drops his brand new video, “Likes”. The self-produced single, released earlier this year, has been burning up dancehall's across the world due to its relatable lyrics and dance-floor ready beat. Directed by Joachim Maquet (@alleyesonit), the video was filmed in London on the UK leg of his well-received Chronology tour. It also features scenes from the sold-out Brixton Academy show.
Chronixx, often cited as a face of the "reggae revival", is no stranger to dancehall. From "Behind Curtain" and "Odd Ras" to " Sell My Gun", "Likes" expands on this versatility. On this self-produced dancehall-oriented track, the young singer vents frustrations at today's dancehall scene and social media hype. He also comments on Rihanna and Drake receiving praise for their dancehall chart-toppers, "Work" and "Controlla".
Fans of Jimmy Fallon's late-night show will have heard a slice of the song when Chronixx performed in February. He also performed the song in full during his UK TV debut on the respected Later with Jools Holland season 8 finale. Other performers included The xx, Maren Morris, Haim, Trombone Shorty and Royal Blood.
“Likes”, alongside recent singles "Skankin' Sweet" and "Majesty", are tasters from Chronixx's forthcoming debut album, Chronology. The full-length follows the critically-acclaimed Dread & Terrible EP and Start A Fyah, and Roots & Chalice mixtapes. Chronology, one of the cultures most anticipated albums, is due for release on July 7.
Chronixx returns to the US in July for a handful of shows. These include a free gig at Brooklyn's Prospect Park before heading to Japan's Fuji Rock and an extensive European tour. Click here for more info
