Chronixx Envisions a Post-Quarantine Summer in New Video
July 22, 2020 - Today, Chronixx unveils his new song and video, “COOL AS THE BREEZE/FRIDAY” a heartfelt dedication to his beloved Kingston, Jamaica. The stream of releases continues as Chronixx builds anticipation for his forthcoming album Dela Splash via Soul Circle Music. The latest cut is produced by Pantha, who crafted a crisp, shimmery beat for Chronixx’s third single reveal from the LP.
Director Meji Alabi naturally reflects countless elements native to Jamaican culture in every frame of the music video. Chronixx seated in a floating armchair, is flanked by a fleet of motorcycles as they weave past pastel-colored buildings. Street parties featuring charismatic dancers are in sync to the rhythm of a vibrant sound system. Kids effortlessly pop wheelies on their bicycles. Jamaican oil-drums are grilling food. This is paradise - Jamaica - “where every day is summer, and every day feels like a Friday,” as Chronixx raves with enthusiasm on the song’s chorus.
The U.S. broadcast premiere of the video will air tonight on REVOLT TV at 9pm ET. Chronixx will also perform “COOL AS THE BREEZE/FRIDAY” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Mon. July 27.
Since the announcement of his second album Dela Splash in March, Chronixx has delivered three critical anthems. “Dela Move” was the first sample of Chronixx’s deeper exploration of his Rastafari beliefs mixed with motivational chants that echoed inspiration by Bob Marley and Shabba Ranks. “Same Prayer,” was the introspective follow-up that featured lyrical master Kabaka Pyramid. The celebratory tone of “COOL AS THE BREEZE/FRIDAY” shifts viewers’ mood to a sense of optimism, especially during this time as the world slowly recovers from the global pandemic.
