Dreamville’s Bas has delivered a summer anthem like no other with “The Jackie” feat. J. Cole and Lil Tjay. The title is inspired by the well-known Jackie Robinson Highway in New York–a lovely ode to Bas and Lil Tjay’s hometown as well as a second home for J.Cole . The hat tip to NY is also the perfect tune for the outside turn up this summer and an elite addition to any “Drop Top” playlist!
The catchy hook and adventure-filled video will have fans smiling from ear to ear with notable cameos from comedians Mark Phillips and Leland. Phillips’ is known for his infamous YouTube skits where he parodies J. Cole’s devoted fans. Shocked by “spotting” Bas and Cole, Phillips breaks out into his signature character.
A melodic Bas glides on the T-Minus produced single as he shows love to one special woman. The Grammy-nominated artist is a delight alongside J. Cole and Lil Tjay, who teased the tune back in June. The video represents the alluring summer energy that can only be found in New York with parties from block to block.
Bas’ new single arrives just after his recent collaboration with British songwriting duo Jungle, who tapped the rapper for “Romeo,” with Bas serving as their first ever featured artist on a track. He was also featured on 3 tracks on J.Cole’s critically acclaimed “The Off Season.” The summer isn’t the only thing Bas has on lock. The rapper has been tapped for several upcoming festivals including Day N Vegas, Rolling Loud and the highly anticipated Dreamville Festival. Expect more greatness from the multifaceted emcee with more great vibes arriving this fall.
