Zinoleesky and Naira Marley Drop New Single 'Caro' and Accompanying Visuals

Zinoleesky teams up with Naira Marley in this ode to beautiful women.

Zinoleesky has just dropped his debut track "Caro" under his new record label, Marlian Records.

He teams up with Naira Marley on the fun and upbeat ode to women and love while also dropping the accompanying visuals too.


Listen to "Caro" on Apple Music or Spotify.

In "Caro", the duo seamlessly feeds off of each other's energy as they rap about beautiful women, money and love. Produced by Rexxie, the track is a classic uptempo Afrobeat number with a pretty laid-back rhythm that makes the track itself an easy listen.

The accompanying visuals, produced by Naya, see both artists switching between scenes shot in a hotel room, on the road and even the supermarket. It's a fairly straightforward music video which allows Zinoleesky especially to take the lead and show off his raw talent.

Last year, Naira Marley announced that he was signing new talent to his record label, Marlian Records. The new cohort of artists included Cblvck who's gone on to feature on Naira Marley's 2019 EP Lord of Lamba, MohBad, Fabian Blu and Zinoleesky who became a social media sensation with his Yoruba raps.

Zinoleesky excitedly announced the news of his new record label deal saying, "I want to use the platform to announce my new record label called Marlian Records and it's for you all. Any of you that has talent can come through."

In 2014, Compaore was forced to resign from his 27-year-long rule and seek exile in the Ivory Coast after continued mass demonstrations. Thirteen other political figures, including former General Gilbert Diendere, have also been indicted with charges including "assassination" and "concealment of corpses".
