Bantu & Dr. Chaii’s “Jackie Chan” Video: Premiere
Bantu delivered one of the freshest bangers of 2017 with “Roll With Me” — a feat he repeats this year. The artist/producer teams up with fellow Zimbabwean expat Dr. Chaii for “Jackie Chan,” a ruthlessly catchy club track with an African twist. What’s it all about? “Jackie Chan was my favorite growing up and we were in the studio one day and I was free styling and that’s just what came out of my mouth,” the “Juice” hitmaker explains. “When I say, ‘she hit me with the Jackie Chan,’ I’m referring to that moment when a guy gets curved by a girl.”
However, there’s more than one interpretation. “But ‘she hit me with the Jackie Chan’ can also refer to anything,” Bantu continues. “For example, you are on the dance floor and she looks at you and starts getting it, she’s hitting you with the Jackie Chan. It’s a fun club record and an ode to my favorite martial artist.” The video also arrives today (June 14) and it finds the well-dressed collaborators hamming it up in Chinatown and turning up in a subway car. Like everything Bantu does, it’s fresh, fun and colorful. We’re excited to premiere it below. “Jackie Chan” is available to download and stream at midnight tonight.
