When we first discovered Team Salut last year while highlighting them in our Under the Radar series, we described their sound as “straddling the line between feeling great about how many piña coladas you had and feeling remorseful for how many piña coladas you had.” That description still proves true for their brand new single “Buss It Up”, making its premiere below.
Team Salut is a London-based trio quickly making their name in the city’s crowded musical landscape at the forefront of the ‘Afrowave’ scene. They’ve produced recent hits for the likes of Yxng Bane and Afro B, and are still fresh from the release of their own smash single “Hot Property”. Speaking on their latest, Team Salut had this to say:
“‘Buss It Up’ is a feel good song about getting down to the music, letting go of inhibitions, and just whinin. Like go hard, buss it up. We made the song with a hook in mind for Big Tobz and when he came to the session, he loved it and wrote his verses real quick. We’ve also been working with Deefundo and thought he’d be a good fit for the song. The song is dope, fun and drives you to dance.”
Which, at least in terms of danceability, is a gross understatement.
