Crazy Cousinz recruits Yxng Bane, Mr Eazi and Lily McKenzie for “No Way.”

After Drake memorably sampled the UK funky anthem ‘Do You Mind’ on his global smash ‘One Dance’, Crazy Cousinz dropped ‘No Way’. Featuring a triple-threat of special guests in the shape of Lily McKenzie, Yxng Bane and Mr Eazi the record first touched the radio waves as Mistajam’s ‘Jam Hot’ on BBC Radio 1Xtra and now GRM Daily have exclusively premiered the visuals.

Set on an interchanging backdrop of bold pastel colours, the record comes to visual life through a myriad of edits that sees slick split screens, lyrics cut out on screen to reveal the video playing beneath and a selection of vibes captured by dance. The impeccable visual changes stick perfectly to the beat, capturing the sizzling Afrobeats rhythms and the undercurrent of R&B that surround the enticingly immediate hook. Lily McKenzie’s soulful topline stands at the top of the production, while features from Yxng Bane and Mr Eazi reiterate ‘No Way’s’ natural authenticity.

Crazy Cousinz – aka Flukes – is a classically trained musician who has produced for artists such as Tinie Tempah and also created official remixes, more recently for hits such as Not3s ‘Aladdin’ & Zac Samuel ‘Play It Cool’. His productions have been complemented by a major DJing career, which has taken him across most of the world’s leading clubs. Between ‘No Way’, ‘One Dance’ and his UK funky tracks, Crazy Cousinz has demonstrated an ability to thrive with an eclectic mix of sounds.
