“Drive N Motion” is Team Salut’s entry into summer playlists

A sultry dancehall single for sunny beach days

For better or for worse, pop music continues to lean hard into Caribbean harmonies, basically asking to soundtrack pool parties and sunny beach days. And since there’s never a shortage of sunlit bashes in Africa, naturally, Afropop is ever ready with simmering dancehall numbers for DJ-turntables. Having worked on the production of tracks from Mr Eazi, Yxng Bane and others, Team Salut are among pioneers of the burgeoning Afropop scene in the UK . Their latest single, “Drive N Motion” however only features vocals from the members of the group, Mr Wood, GKP and Side Chain Manny, who perform the sultry dancehall single. “Drive N Motion” premiered on Fader, where the group gave the inspiration behind the song, “The record was inspired by the desire for good weather and good vibes. When it gets cold, we often have to create our own inspiration; ‘Drive N Motion’ is a product of that. The song is about enjoying good vibes with a person you really click with, and sharing your world with that person. This is a feel good song that can make people dance, laugh, smile and create happy memories together.”
