Teejay, one of Jamaica’s most versatile and talked-about dancehall artists, unites with Nigerian Grammy-nominated superstar Davido for an official remix of his explosive dance-inspired anthem “Drift.”

The Panda-produced remix arrives with a high-powered music video shot in Lagos, Nigeria and is from the Montego Bay native’s anticipated debut  I Am Chippy, slated for release in early 2024 and executive produced by diamond-selling artist Shaggy.

The song’s sultry Afro-Caribbean rhythms pulsate as Teejay’s unshakable cadence kickstarts the momentum. He passes this energy right to his partner-in-crime Davido, as he promises to “make her dance,” while the sound of a camera snap punctuates his invitation to “take my picture.” They go big in the accompanying visual—which was notably shot in Nigeria. Private planes, champagne, and tricked-out cars rev up the action while Teejay and Davido shine in every frame.

The remix unites two cultures and features a universal sound that transcends genres, bridging the gap between West Africa and the Caribbean. Teejay and Davido connect their signature melodic tones on “Drift” (Remix), along with their shared vocal stylings where English, Jamaican Patois, and Yoruba mashup into what feels like one universal language.


"Working with Davido was just pure vibe. You could just feel the authentic energy from the music, coming from Jamaica going back to Africa, because it originated from Africa. Just to have the combination of a Jamaican artist and a Nigerian artist. It is the perfect timing, and it is good for Jamaican music to show that the world is embracing our culture. It was just energy, you know," expresses Teejay.


Teejay’s summer breakout single “Drift” continues to go the distance with more than 60 million global streams in addition to over 15 million YouTube views on the official music video. The contagious hook and choreography are storming through nightclubs across the globe, climbing the U.S. Billboard's charts (R&B/Hip Hop Airplay, Rhythmic Top 40 Airplay, and Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay), and amassing over a quarter of a billion TikTok views for its viral dance.


Teejay has been a mainstay in Jamaican dancehall for almost a decade, known for his impeccable vocal range and lyrical dexterity. He has made an impact on the island’s vibrant musical genre and pumped out hundreds of anthems – “People” (2022), “Bitcoin” (2021), “Unfaithful Games” (2020), “Rags To Riches” (2020), “Moonlight” (2020), “Stimulate (Push It Een)” (2020), and “Up Top Boss” (2018). He has earned the respect from his fans and dancehall stars like Mavado, who worked with him in the infancy of his career, to Vybz Kartel, who has guest featured on Teejay’s tracks like “Up Top Gaza” & “Pressure”, to Grammy-winning Jamaican superstar Shaggy, who is the executive producer of his forthcoming debut EP I Am Chippy. Earlier this year, he made his television debut on BET by teaming up with Shaggy for a performance of “Gyal Dem Time.” Watch HERE.

Everyone from Cardi B and Offset to Burna Boy has been seen dancing to his explosive viral TikTok hit “Drift”. In September, it was the #1 Most Shazamed Song in NYC and DJ Funkmaster Flex summoned Teejay to the Madison Square Garden’s stage to perform his anthem in front of a sold-out 20,000+ crowd for Hot 97. He also lit up Afrotech in Austin, TX, showing the Lone Star State how dancehall is done!
