Big Zeeks, also known as 'The Fresh Prince Of Harlesden,' has teamed up with Dancehall don Ding Dong for their latest collaboration, 'Clean.' This UK dancehall anthem radiates immense energy and a fresh vibe. Premiered by DJ Target on BBC Radio 1Xtra on Wednesday, December 6th, the track was officially released at midnight the same night.
‘Clean’, as Zeeks explains, “is not just about how ya dress, it’s about having a clean heart and clean intentions”, with a slick riddim and vibe to match, produced by deadly production duo Dot Inc (Mercston, Knucks, Raksu, Sean Paul, Kojey Radical).
In 'Clean,' both artists share verses that delve into the importance of presenting oneself polished, clean, and fresh, emphasizing the significance of a positive and genuine outlook.
The music video, set to premiere on Big Zeeks' YouTube channel on Thursday, December 7th, was shot in Kingston, JA. The visuals showcase dynamic fashion, style, and dance imagery, all curated by Big Zeeks himself. The video captures Zeeks at various locations and landmarks around Kingston, including the renowned entertainment hub, Rumeich's. The nighttime scenes feature Zeeks and Ding Dong at Kingston's Boasy Tuesdays event, with appearances from key figures in the Dancehall scene, including Shelley Belly, Energy Squad, Pata Skeng, Loggo Loggo, and Cyan Tiad.
Expressing his excitement about the collaboration, Big Zeeks stated, “I’ve known Ding Dong for years, and we're excited to finally collaborate on this track. The video and track were my vision and may be my best work. I'm not a dancer, I'm a sheller, but we had a lot of fun making the video in Yard! Clean is about a cleansy life, a clean family, eating clean, and having a clean heart. Very important in this world, because karma's a bitch!”
Leading up to the single release, Big Zeeks will be touring the UK, performing at grassroots venues and pop-up locations in cities such as Bristol, Birmingham, and Manchester. 'Clean' is released through the UK label Parlay.
