14 Mar

Cover Drive have shared the lyric video for their new single online.

The Bajan quartet – composed of Amanda Reifer, T-Ray Armstrong, Jamar Harding, and Barry Hill – posted the Jahket-directed clip for “Breakdown” to their YouTube channel on Monday (March 13, 2017).

The Dread Hawk-produced track was co-written by Reifer and Emma Ariel alongside Kerrie “KETA” Thomas-Armstrong, who previously teamed up with Cover Drive on “Love Junkie,” “Whatever Suits You,” “Lovesick Riddim,” “Welcome to Me,” “Grapefruit Perrier,” “Easy Life,” and Alexandra Stan’s “Trumpet Blows.”

Cover Drive’s sophomore studio collection, tentatively entitled “In the Meantime,” is expected to arrive later this year.

The highly-anticipated project follows 2013’s “Bajan Style,” which debuted at number fourteen on the UK Albums Chart and spawned singles including the Ina Wroldsen-assisted “Twilight” and Jonathan Rotem-produced “Lick Ya Down.”

Bajan quartet Cover Drive have reunited with Naughty Boy on new material for their upcoming sophomore album.

Naughty Boy initially produced and co-wrote songs for Cover Drive along with regular collaborator Emeli Sande. However, the recorded material did not make the final cut of Cover Drive’s debut album due to a change in music direction.

Notable songwriting and production credits by the hitmaker – real name Shahid Khan – include Alesha Dixon’s “Radio” [Asylum Records], Leona Lewis’ “Trouble” [Syco Music] and Cheryl’s “Craziest Things” [Polydor Records].

Naughty Boy’s debut album “Hotel Cabana” – featuring guest appearances from Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, Wiz Khalifa, Ella Eyre, and Chasing Grace – is now available for download via iTunes in partnership with Virgin EMI Records.

Furthermore, he has contributed to the next projects by Emeli Sande [Capitol], Rihanna [Roc Nation], Jess Glynne [Atlantic], Tamera Foster [Syco Music], Ava Lily [Naughty Records] and Tanika Bailey [Virgin EMI].

Meanwhile, Cover Drive are expected to release their second studio collection – boasting further productions and songwriting contributions from Mac and Phil, Will IDAP, and Dayo “Ms. D” Olatunji – later this year.

The still-untitled project serves as the follow-up to 2013’s “Bajan Style,” which debuted at number fourteen on the UK Albums Chart and spawned hit singles including “Twilight” and the Jonathan Rotem-produced “Lick Ya Down.”
