Black Dog director Meji Alabi has turned up the heat with Tinie for new single ‘Whoppa’, Teaming up with Mexican popstar Sofia Reyes and Columbian artist Farina for a track that channels festival spirit for the ’lost summer’ of 2020. Bringing the three high-octane artists together, the vibrant video was filmed in the balmy streets of Mexico City.
Speaking about ‘Whoppa’, Tinie says: “Coming from a small council estate in South London I’ve always had the ambition to make World music. I’ve expressed this on similar sounds like ‘Mamacita’ with Wiz Kid, and three albums in, I’ve finally got the opportunity to work with incredible artists like Sofia and Farina. Something about Latin and Afro-Latin culture resonates with me, maybe the vibrancy, dance, and musicality of it reminds me of what I love about my own culture. And this time around it’s all about doing and celebrating what I love.”
