Chronixx showcases his versatility on his first single of the new year, “Dela Move.”
Chronixx is the literal embodiment of music with definition, quality over quantity as he releases a sort of trap Reggae tune, “Dela Move.” Who ever thought that reggae artistes could sing reggae and rap all on the same song without missing a beat? Not until Chronixx have we ever seen such a lyrical master singing reggae songs that young people can relate to and understand. Chronixx has such a delicate demeanor yet he is as fierce as a lion. Both personas can be seen in his incredible new song “Dela Move.”
When the song begins you would think you’re in for a typical reggae experience as you hear the beating of drums and a welcome to the motherland rhythm. You also see a shirtless Chronixx dancing in front of a fire. You are then introduced to a young boy, who is meant to be a young version of Chronixx, walking through a field as men chop grass. Then you calmly hear “Whoa yeah yeah yeah yeah.”
Chronixx switches things up on us as he immediately starts rapping to the sick beat which now sounds like a trap song. “Mi put mi city pon di map yeah dela splash yeah dela move blaze fire hot / barrel fulla crab whoi barrel fulla a crab / think dem coulda stop whole a dem shell ya ago crack unuh crawl out the barrel and reach fi di top / whole a dem show ya sell out and mi land inna foreign mi show neva flop/ shell down the whole world already shell it down again and then call it mi back / who cudda sick fi call mi wack.”
In the video young Chronixx raps the song in his bathroom in front of the mirror. As the beat and the lyrics heat up so too does young Chronixx who literally starts breathing fire. He then runs through the village spewing fire setting things ablaze as he goes. We then see a lion in a firepit where the older Chronixx is rapping. The two meet face to face at the end of the video in an empty field.
Many persons who are not reggae fans are going to miss out on the experience of this song and it will truly be a loss as its greatness is undeniable. As Chronixx says, give him his crown, he’s a king and a top musician on a mission with a microphone in hand.
