Back in August, Koffee liberated the new single “Pressure,” which saw an accompanying live performance visual courtesy of Highsnobiety for their “Not In Paris” feature. This week, the Jamaican star drops off a new visual for the track’s remix, which sees an additional verse from dancehall/reggae legend Buju Banton:
“From wi born ina di struggle isolated inna bubble what law fi di rich yet another fi di poor, Jah bless and please help us we caan take no more, we feeling di pressure way down to di core/
How money fi deh ya wen dem sen it offshore? An every nation come ya get rich and we stay poor, dem show you twenty dollar weh go through di back door, tell dem, tell dem seh we caan tek no more!/
Under the pressure, under the pressure, yeah, under the pressure, under the pressure, yeah, if yuh poor, trouble tek you, when yuh rich it nuh settle/”
The visual contains shots of beautiful black men, women, and families, all of whom are surely going through their own trials and tribulations (as we all are). In addition to that, Koffee and Banton are seen performing the powerful cut in different locations as footage of protests in lieu of systemic racism are happening all over the world.
“Pressure” follows another dope cut titled “Lockdown,” which was released in July. Prior to that, Koffee liberated the EP Rapture in March last year, which saw five tracks and a single feature from Jane Macgizmo. Meanwhile, Buju Banton released Upside Down 2020 in June, his first since his release from prison in 2018 that saw 20 cuts and additional appearances from Stephen Marley, John Legend, Pharrell Williams, and Stefflon Don. His last official project, Before The Dawn, was released in 2010.
