LargeUp Premiere: Martei Korley’s “Couldn’t Be Wrong” Video

Couldnt-Be-Wrong-video

LargeUp co-founder and creative director Martei Korley is the photographer behind countless classic reggae images, but he’s also a reggae artist himself. Today being International Reggae Day, he’s decided to share this other side of his creativity with the world in the form of his video for “Couldn’t Be Wrong,” shot between his two homes of Kingston, Jamaica and New York City.

“Couldn’t Be Wrong,” off Martei’s Kingston Konfidential EP (out July 22 and available for pre-order today) is “about a long-distance relationship, and, in some ways, also about my relationship with Jamaica,” Martei tells us. The clip, directed by Johnny Dollar and co-starring up and coming singer Sevana, illustrates this theme with travel footage taken at JFK Airport in NY and Norman Manley in Kingston, and high up in the sky above both cities on a 747. The result is a visually stimulating clip that will feel familiar to anyone who’s ever had miles between them and what they love. For more on Martei’s journey, read our interview with him here.

We’re not ready to call it the next “Hold Yuh” just yet, but Gyptian definitely has another one on his hands with “Stuck.” Produced by Brooklyn’s Ricky Blaze, the maestro behind Gyptian’s signature tune, “Stuck” revisits the breezy island pop territory that made the pair’s previous collaboration such an epic hit.

Powder “Fresh”: New Jillionaire Video Brings The Heat To Freezing NYC

Words by Natalie Weiner—jillionaire-fresh-video

Jillionaire, of Major Lazer fame and an esteemed member of the LargeUp family, has been putting in work on some of his side projects recently. After two years on the road with Major Lazer, he’s just launched his new label Feel Up Records, which just dropped its first release (the new Grand Analog LP) yesterday.

Jillionaire’s first single for the new label “Fresh,” which Major Lazer started playing live late last year, is officially dropping today on BBC Radio 1Xtra, accompanied by a predictably fly video filmed entirely in NYC. Co-produced by Salvatore Ganacci and featuring the Mr. Lexx-esque vocal stylings of Sanjin (both of Sweden via the Balkans), the track features the irresistible blend of dancehall and EDM that’s made Major Lazer a club staple. I mean, it’s already got girls twerking in the snow…
