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."

The 10 Best HHP Songs Ranked

On the second anniversary of HHP's passing, we rank 10 of the South African hip-hop legend's best songs.

During his active years, which span two decades (from 1997 to 2018), he was instrumental in breaking barriers and bridging the gap between kwaito and hip-hop in SA, from the late 90s to early 2000s.

He became a household name in the 2000s as he spearheaded the motswako movement, propelling it to the mainstream and solidifying his legendary status in the process.
