Tiwa Savage and Busy Signal Head to Jamaica In the New Video for ‘Key to the City’

Tiwa Savage's remix single, which features dancehall star Busy Signal, comes off the soundtrack to the film 'A Trip to Jamaica.'

Tiwa Savage touches down in Jamaica in the new music video for “Key to the City.”


The remix single, which features dancehall star Busy Signal, comes off the soundtrack to A Trip to Jamaica, the “Nollywood-meets-Hollywood” comedy from Ayo Makun, co-starring Funke Akindele.

The Moe Musa-directed music video for “Key to the City” follows Tiwa Savage and Busy Signal through the Caribbean island’s beaches and streets as they relieve their stresses.

The Mavins Records singer has had a huge year so far, which has seen her sign a deal with Jay Z‘s Roc Nation and kill it as the only female performer at the One Africa Music Fest. She most recently shared the boss anthem “Bad,” a collaboration with Wizkid.

It should come as no surprise that Tiwa’s got top-tier collabos for days.

Watch her and Busy Signal’s “Key to the City” video above.

Interview: Wavy The Creator Is Ready to See You Now

The multidisciplinary Nigerian-American artist on tapping into all her creative outlets, creating interesting things, releasing a new single and life during quarantine.

A trip canceled, plans interrupted, projects stalled. It is six months now since Wavy the Creator has had to make a stop at an undisclosed location to go into quarantine and get away from the eye of the pandemic.

The professional recording artist, photographer, writer, fashion artist, designer, and evolving creative has been spending all of this time in a house occupied by other creatives. This situation is ideal. At least for an artist like Wavy who is always in a rapid motion of creating and bringing interesting things to life. The energy around the house is robust enough to tap from and infuse into any of her numerous creative outlets. Sometimes, they also inspire trips into new creative territories. Most recently, for Wavy, are self-taught lessons on a bass guitar.

Wavy's days in this house are not without a pattern, of course. But some of the rituals and personal rules she drew up for herself, like many of us did for internal direction, at the beginning of the pandemic have been rewritten, adjusted, and sometimes ditched altogether. Some days start early and end late. Some find her at her sewing machine fixing up thrift clothes to fit her taste, a skill she picked up to earn extra cash while in college, others find her hard at work in the studio, writing or recording music.
