It's shaping up to be a big day for Quebec-based production twosome Banx & Ranx. Just moments ago, the pair's collaboration with JP Cooper and Stefflon Don—"The Reason Why"—dropped and now they're sharing the vissuals for their catchy Kojo Funds collab "Traffic Jam". A high energy party-starter, Kojo's silky-smooth vocals contrast perfectly against the speaker-bursting thump of Banx & Ranx's production. Amplifying the energy perfectly, Burna Boy and Tiwa Savage collaborator Meji Alabi has put together a rowdy and chaotic video that follows the trio as they head out to Accra, Ghana, to explore everything the city has to offer, so long as they can get past the dancing girls causing the gridlock.
Speaking with Complex via email, Kojo Funds said: "'Traffic Jam' was a fun song to make. The song reflects the energy that was created in the studio that day. Working with Banx & Ranx felt like we had been working together for years! They are two musical geniuses."
Yannick (Banx & Ranx) added: "What I love about 'Traffic Jam' is the simplicity of the chorus; it really reflects the fun we had in the studio that day writing with Kojo—without force and bouncing all over the place."
Soké (Banx & Ranx) continued: "When we were writing the song, we chose every word wisely. We really focused on different flows and multi-syllable rhyming, kinda like a hip-hop track. Oh, and yeah, I love this beat!"
