At the end of what has already been a wildly successful year for the UK music, artist and production trio, Team Salut wrap it up with a new drop, bringing just enough heat in time for the cold season.
Dropping in on DJ Target’s show at 1Xtra last night, Team Salut premiered ‘Wagon’ as the Targo Embargo. With an inimitable flow from Naira Marley, who knows his ‘pull up game is strong’ – ‘Wagon’ teams up an effortless bassline with an enduring hook from Team Salut.
“‘Wagon’ was a blessing in disguise.” Team Salut say, “We invited Naira Marley to record on another beat, but later felt his lyrics could be better placed on a smoother production. We came up with a hook to reflect his lyrics, which centred around car analogies, with Mr. Wood and Sidechain Manny handling vocal duties, and getting to showcase their artistry side. We love the G wagon and decided to theme the song around it.”
Team Salut, are also bringing together the biggest line-up from the very best names in the game for their new night Mango Drop. P Montana, Kenny Allstar, Sir DJ Corey and special guest Afro B, will all be joining Team Salut at Birthdays, Dalston on the 20th December. From 7pm, expect nothing but bangers all night.
Their second single release as artists, ‘Wagon’ is the follow up to ‘Hot Property’, and Team Salut add the production of ‘Wagon’ to an already teeming discography, “We’ve always loved Naira Marley and his raw style of singing, so his style and our music just made too much sense. He flowed so naturally and brought so many sing-along moments to the record. ‘Wagon’ is about living in the moment – especially after the party, where both the guy and girl know what they mutually want. The song is about not being shy and doing something about it. We’re sure people will love it”.
Forging ahead, Team Salut continue to step out as world beating artists in their own right. Stream or download ‘Wagon’ from Team Salut & Naira Marley now.
