Releases Melanin' Official Video
Dancehall artiste Skip Da Line recently released single ‘Melanin’ is arguably his most successful track of 2021, Melanin debuted at number seventeen on the Reggae iTunes - US Charts within a day of its release on March 23rd.
Since release, the single has amassed over 25,000 streams cumulatively across all major streaming platforms with Spotify being the main contributor.
Following the streaming success Skip Da Line traveled to Portland, Jamaica at the world famous 'Monkey Island' beach to host and film the music video dedicated to all the beautiful melanated women of this world.
“I WANTED TO RELEASE A SONG THAT EVERY FEMALE COULD RELATE TO AND THEN IT HIT ME THAT WOMEN ARE EMPOWERED BY THE COLOUR OF THEIR SKIN SO WHY NOT ENDORSE IT WITH THEM. THE SONG IS FOR ALL SHADES OF WOMEN, IT TEACHES THEM TO LOVE WHO THEY ARE WHILE ENTERTAINING THEM AND I FEEL ITS THE RELATABILITY OF THE SONG THAT IS MAKING IT SO IMPACTFUL”
“ I GET SEVERAL VIDEOS DAILY OF WOMEN GOING TO WORK, AT THE GYM OR JUST VIBING TO THE SONG AND ITS TRULY AN OVERWHELMING FEELING TO SEE MY MUSIC REACHING PEOPLE WORLDWIDE. THE SONG IS PLAYING EVERYWHERE IN NORTH AMERICA, THE CARIBBEAN, AND PARTS OF AFRICA AND I AM THANKFUL FOR EVERYONE WHO MADE THIS SUCCESS POSSIBLE. I KNEW THE SINGLE WOULD CREATE WAVES, THAT’S WHY I SHOT THE VIDEO FOR IT WHILE I WAS IN JAMAICA.”
