Dancehall artiste Flyght is ecstatic about the early feedback to his latest single, Move, featuring Laa Lee.
“The track Move is about something both of us were experiencing at the time. People were coming at us with negative energy to throw us off our game. So this song is an affirmation of us moving towards our goals and ambitions, ‘cutting and clearing’ our path and going forward,” said Flyght.
Fans have responded in an overwhelmingly positive way to the song as ‘Move’ is currently the number 19 trending song on local YouTube charts. The track, which was released on August 13, has amassed more than 130,000 views.
“Being on the trending list is a wonderful feeling. The vibes is mad, I can’t complain, it’s doing very well, I am basking in the moment. Laa Lee a family, we have a real friendship. Because of that, everything for this song came naturally, the lyrics flowed and the energy was just right,” Flyght said.
