Big up to Bahamian artist Young Gii who features Lina Love and takes inspiration from Junkanoo on the Ozbourne-produced “Yean Never Seen. Junkanoo is a masquerade street carnival that moves through the streets of downtown Nassau in public celebration of identity and artistic expression. It’s a cultural event that boasts elaborate costumes, floats and musicians who perform melody selections on goatskin drums, cowbells, whistles and horns. When this first came on the syncopation had me a little confused, trying to hear the vocals through the instrumentation. My ears quickly got accustomed to the tune, though, and this knocks. I’m on my third play-through and I can see this in the damn Nassau commercial. Catch the vibe:
