Last year has seen IQ blessing the masses with some serious singles, including “Make Up Sex,” “Merry Go Round,” “Wet,” and “Which One.” This week, the young talent made his first entry for 2022 with “Bun Fi Bun,”a genre-bending offering that’s essentially an ode to a couple who cheats on each other. All-in-all, it’s an infectious vibe that’s perfect for both the dance floor and the bedroom.
IQ (real name Cairo Dawkins) has accompanying quite a bit so early in his career, having been previously co-signed by Stefflon, Afro B, and more in regards to being one of the next game-changers. He holds beginnings as a drill talent before taking notes from his father (GQ) and brother (QQ) and incorporating dancehall and other related styles in newer works. He also joined the likes of Lucky Daye, Melii, and Nafe Smallz as one of BBC 1Xtra’s Hot for 2020.
The past few years have seen IQ liberating a wealth of top tier cuts like “Spray” with Lvly, “Scream,” “Star Girl,” “My Love,” “Lockdown,” “Good Pain,” and “If” with Prince Akeem. In 2019, he delivered his official debut EP Jamaican Prince, which contained eight tracks and a couple of assists from QQ and Scratch.
It’s been a few years since Stefflon Don liberated her last project Secure, a 16-track offering that saw additional assists from Future, Tiggs da Author, Ebenezer, Fekky, Haile, Sean Paul, Popcaan, Sizzla, and DJ Khaled. Since then, the British star has revealed a slew of loose singles and collaborations, including “Boasty” with Wiley, Paul, and Idris Elba, “Take Off” with Kojo Funds, “Don Walk,” “Phone Down” with Lil Baby, “Hit Me Up,” “How It’s Done” with Kash Doll, “Move,” “Can’t Let You Go,” and “Dip” with Ms Banks — all of which bring hope that a follow-up is arriving sooner than later.
