Produced by DT5 Beats, SB and UDL, the rapper, famed for his choppy flow, slides over the violin-led instrumental with ease, leaving him with a potential summer smash on his hands. “I was in the studio catching a vibe, and I thought to myself, ‘Should I make a solo song?’ as the fans have been pestering me for one for ages,” he explains. “They wanted the old-school Bando, so I thought, ‘Let me give them something different’ and I made this summer banger called ‘Slide’.”
Bandokay is showing that he’s a versatile artist with each new drop. With his previous material, he’s been able to morph, meld, and shift between poignant social commentary, Teflon-proof UK drill cuts, and finally, a catchy single for all the post-lockdown summer motives.
In the Teeeezy C-directed visuals, we see Bando and his people posted up at a pool party, kitted out with water guns and bouncy castles. The carefree, light-hearted clip creates a complementary mirror to his exuberant and in-your-face flows.
