Team Salut And Naira Marley Link Up For Wavy Afro Banger "Wagon"

December 04, 2017

It hasn't been that long since London-based hitmakers Team Salut burst onto the scene with "Hot Property", but they're already on to their next single with "Wagon". The track dropped late last week, and it's now been given some highly polished visuals from Kirx.

The wavy, car-themed banger sees the trio pair up with Afrowave man-of-the-moment Naira Marley to lace the production with stories of the heat between two people who've left the club together. 

On the story behind the track's creation, Team Salut explained: "'Wagon' was a blessing in disguise. 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.

"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."

With such a strong follow-up to their debut, it's looking like 2018 will belong to Team Salut.
