Skeete, the fast-rising artist hailing from Nottingham, UK, has captivated listeners worldwide with his fascinating blend of R&B, soul, dancehall and Afrobeats. Recognised for his ability to effortlessly transition between slow, expressive tracks and uplifting anthems, Skeete’s versatility has earned him a dedicated fanbase. With notable hits such as “Notice Me”, “Independent Girl”, “No More Love Songs” and “Weekdays (She Freaky, She Sneaky)”, which have helped the independent artist accumulate over 20 million streams, he is now poised to reach even greater heights with the release of his much-anticipated new EP, Vibes Don’t Lie.
Picking up from where “Weekdays (She Freaky, She Sneaky)” left off, Vibes Don’t Lie taps into Skeete’s Caribbean heritage and takes listeners on a seamless journey filled with smooth R&B melodies, catchy dancehall rhythms and feelgood vibes perfect for the summer season. The EP is supported by new single “Tek Buddy”, which arrives alongside an enthralling music video directed by Jack Stangaard and will surely be another hit for Skeete as he continues to lead the charge as one of the most exciting UK R&B artists out today. The project also includes lead single “Set It Arff”.
Speaking about his inspiration behind the project, Skeete shares, “‘Weekdays (She Freaky, She Sneaky)’ wasn’t a song I expected to take off so quickly, but for its sexual tone and chemistry it brought something to fans. So, this project is directly for those same fans to enjoy some new summer music from me with a similar feel, but this time more with a variety on whether to pick an erotic vibe or a summery one.”
With the release of Vibes Don’t Lie, Skeete once again demonstrates his ability to draw in listeners through his genre-bending artistry and innate musical versatility. The EP’s anthemic hooks, combined with the infectious beats and sensual allure, create an irresistible sonic experience that will undoubtedly leave fans clamouring for more.
